vita and one pot team up with foodista on an experimental dinner…
www.foodista.com is charging ahead with their plans to become the wikipedia of food (and recipes and ingredients) on the web and they are doing a lovely job. one pot, caffe vita, foraged and found edibles, and chef conor donahue got together with foodista to test the technology… in real time.
the idea was rather simple – source all the best foraged items available in the northwest – lay the stuff out in a kitchen – add three chefs – and let them cook up new recipes from scratch. add foodista to translate the rapid cooking to recipe form – and publish the recipes and documentation (in real time) invite friends and host a dinner wherein all the guests can take home the recipes they just feasted upon. share it with the world. this was our first foray into this realm – expect more to come.
here is the menu and links to the recipes.
elderflower shortbread with strawberries in elderflower syrup.
