A Very Alinea Thanksgiving

By Chuck Sudo in Food on Nov 25, 2008 5:40PM

Say you're Nick Kokonas, partner in Alinea and Daddy Warbucks to Grant Achatz's Little Orphan Annie, and you want to do something slightly different with the Thanksgiving turkey. Do you brine it? Deep fry it? Grind it and turn it into a giant pot pie?

No. You bring Achatz over, set up a camera, cook the entire bird in a sous vide bath, and post it on YouTube.

Nick? Grant? E-mail me, I want some of that.
