José Andrés, Eddie Huang, and Danny Serfer Gossip Over Frozen Cosmos (Updated)
Welcome to our newest series called Short Order's Weekly Bites. (Tentative name) Every Thursday, we'll use Short Order's highly scientific formula to bring you the five most important restaurant industry figures of the week.
The formula, which we cannot disclose unless you have in your possession a vile of the blood of a Megasus, is top secret.
Just like momma's best recipes.
5. José Andrés
Andres pissed some Twitter folk off after Tweeting a graphic photo of dead game. He captioned with the explanation that those were the fruits of a laborious hunt, then threw a WTF curveball at everyone when he responded to everyone's disapproval. It went something like 'I'm sorry I posted a picture of a bunch of slaughtered animals -- hopefully now you'll care about child hunger.' WHAT?! Yeah. Child hunger. We want to end child hunger too. But we don't use bad scapegoat tactics to do it.
4. Eddie Huang
New York chef and author and overall rebel, Eddie Huang, threw out some love to Miami from his show Fresh Off The Boat. The Magic City is the star attraction in three episodes and Huang's explanation for that? "I watch porn and I watch news. I want to know what these girls are like." Yes, Mr. Huang. Because all young women from Miami are either looking for a spotlight in the news or the nearest "Bang Here" sticker. At least his restaurant picks half made up for the stereotype.
