And there were pots bubbling and bread ovens going eighteen hours a day down there, so the kitchen felt a lot like that part in Dante where the sinners are bobbing in a boiling river of blood. Don’t get me wrong: it was worth the suffering. The food and the techniques I was learning were amazing. S. But there was always drama—every day, much, much drama. The pastry chef was a young guy who talked very fast in a seriously dense Parisian accent. ” He’d started working in the kitchen when he was about ten years old, so even though he lived in one of the most cosmopolitan cities in the world, he was really provincial: he’d never been anywhere or done anything, he’d never read anything but cookbooks, and he had some very small ideas about the world.

We tried the diner in Wyoming next to the general store that sold cattle dewormer; we tried the cafe in Kansas where all the locals, dressed in their Sunday best, watched us walk through the restaurant in our cutoffs and third-day road shirts; we tried the truck stop in Paw Paw, Michigan, where there was a trucker in every booth, every one eating a meal the size of my head at warp speed.

And it’s not exactly a stuffy old-school place. The food is classic French, but John’s always updating his game: in the slow winter season, he and Matt travel and eat everywhere, so whatever’s going on in the food world is going on at Chez François. Matt and John both love learning everything they can about food and cooking, and they’re really generous about sharing that experience, too.
