Throwback Thursday: JBF Award Winner Patrick O'ConnellMaggie Borden
June 11, 2015
If anyone can pull off the overall–chef jacket combo, it’s JBF Award winner Patrick O’Connell. In fact, his sartorial style just might be the perfect metaphor for the celebrated chef’s intermingling of regional traditions with elevated techniques. This TBT, we’re looking back at O’Connell’s 1993 visit to the Beard House kitchen, but if you’re looking for a taste of his influential cuisine, give his recipe for truffled popcorn a whirl. O’Connell’s contributions to American cooking will also be highlighted at an upcoming Beard House dinner, where chef Robert J. Ciborowski will pay homage to gastronomic giants.
