Jordan Kahn & Mathias Dahlgren StarChefs Dinner in Pictures

At this year’s StarChefs International Chef’s Congress, there was a special dinner to end the even.  It was a collaborative dinner between Jordan Kahn of the modern Vietnamese restaurant Red Medicine in LA, and Mathias Dahlgren of Sweden.  The dinner was held at Wall & Water Restaurant at Andaz Wall Street (http://www.hyatt.com/gallery/wall&water/index.html). This was a dinner I was not going to miss.  The food delivered.  I don’t mean this to be a review, but a short photo album of the dinner. I expect that John of Docsconz.Com will have better pictures and a detailed review up soon.  Thanks to Antoinette and Will of StarChefs for another great year.  I’m going to try to do a brief recap of all 3 days.
