On today’s THE FOOD SEEN, Jeff Gordinier, New York Times Dining Section staff writer, waxes poetic about food, searching for sandwiches with Keanu Reeves, learning cooking techniques from Jacques Pepin, holding court with Adam Gopnik in a banquet at Le Grenouille lamenting the days of great French dining, and reviving the classic Tournedos Rossini at the hands of master chef Andre Soltner, and talks about the revamped menus changes at wd~50 and Eleven Madison Park. This program was sponsored by Fairway Market.
