There's a lot to be said for an outsider's view of things. Frankly, there's just less baggage. He/she doesn't take sides, doesn't play favorites, doesn't have a history (good or bad), so the opinions are pure. Or purer. When it comes to, oh, I don't know, a food writer from another city's take on restaurants here in Seattle? I think it's refreshing to read what they see, how they taste things. It makes me challenge my own assumptions.

Chef Grant Achatz (pronounced AK-etz) is a visionary, multi-award-winning chef/owner of Chicago’s Alinea, a foodie fave and an inspiration at age 36 who lost the ability to taste – and nearly his life – from tongue cancer several years ago. His health and incredibly-tuned sense of taste are back, thanks to a progressive treatment program at the University of Chicago.
