Chef KPE is the chef of HOTPANnyc and he has a unique way of creating dishes that has the world talking. His mastery of the culinary arts stems from a unique understanding of the senses and and an approach to recipes that is multi-sensory. If you’re scratching your head wondering what exactly that looks like, check out our video with the culinary mastermind here. We followed him around New York City to witness him forage for wild greens in Inwood and source local ingredients to create a one-of-a-kind dish that included using Hennessy VSOP to create a dope-looking glaze for a duck-based dish.
To further dissect his expertise, Highsnobiety’s Jeff Carvalho, Managing Director North America, caught up with the chef who took the call from the Tuscany region in Italy. In this episode of Conversations, a podcast that explores the creatives who are shaping culture today, the chef dives into his unique culinary techniques, his creative process, and much more. Give it a listen.
