Trying to settle a debate at work: does anyone happen to know who makes the hot dogs at Grays Papaya? There aren't any Sabrett signs up on the premises, as far as I can see. Do they produce their own franks?
In the latest episode of Roots, Jason Stratton tells how he went from studying avant-garde poetry in Spain to becoming the award-winning chef of Seattle's Spinasse, Artusi, and Aragona. Roots takes a deep biographical look into the world's most influential chefs to reveal their inspirations, Ancestry.com style except not really. **UPDATE: Stratton recently announced his departure from his killer restaurants, citing a need for a sabbatical out in the great wide world. Dude is gonna read some books and nod thoughtfully at art like whoa.
