Grant Achatz shoot at Alinea for Red Bull

I was asked by Red Bull's corporate office in Austria to capure some photos of Grant Achatz, the Executive Chef from Alinea in Chicago, with Red Bull's Roland Trettl. Mr Trettl is the Executive Chef of Red Bull's Ikarus restaurant in Hangar-7. Grant Achatz was invited by Red Bull to be a guest chef for the month of November. Here are some photos from that shoot.

It was a pleasure working with the Red Bull team again. I loved working on this project and it was so exciting to be working in the kitchen of Alinea. It makes me very proud to be part of the food culture in Chicago. Grant Achatz and his staff at Alinea were extemely accomodating as well.

Andrew Knowlton, from Bon Appétit magazine lists Alinea as the 4th most important restaurant in America.
