Missing ingredients. Too many guests. A cramped kitchen. Experience the first night of service at Chef Brett Cooper's Aster in San Francisco. Opening Night immerses you in the rush of the unknown, as restaurants around the world open their doors for the first time. These things only happen once. Snag that coveted seat at the line, on us.
Watch as we smash one night in a busy, popular kitchen into one minute, and then watch it again. This time, chef Brett Cooper tries his hand at the big leagues with a pop-up version of his forthcoming SF restaurant Aster.
**UPDATE: Baby’s all grown up! Aster is now a full-fledged restaurant.
Justin Chapple, Food & Wine Deputy Test Kitchen Editor, is back this week with another killer Mad Genius Tip—an ice cream cake made of store-bought ice cream sandwiches, that requires just minutes of prep time.
