Not really. We do use our blast freezer for some items that we want to get to -34ºF. (1)

 

Could you describe your cooking style for us?

Our food is inspired by the mountains that surround us and the history and stories that come from the area. We cook using a variety of techniques, however we find ourselves using our wood burning grill and oven for most of our preparations, however, the CVap and circulator are very close by as well.

What’s the most scientific piece of equipment in your kitchen?

We have a centrifuge that allow us to separate matter based on density.  That has been very useful for some interesting and unexpected applications! (2)

 

Are you passionate about liquid nitrogen?

Liquid nitrogen is an ingredient that we use at the restaurant, certainly! (1.5 for skirting around the question, somewhat)

 

Could you describe your cooking style for us?

wd~50 is a modern American restaurant that tries to use not only classic techniques, but also modern information and equipment that is available to us.  We also reference our location (NYC), our memories, and humor, all in an effort to make a unique dining experience for our guests. (1)
