HotHouse was there to see the return of a culinary event like no other, The Grand Gelinaz Shuffle!
The shuffle saw chefs from 17 countries and 40 coveted dining destinations relocated by random ballot, with each chef discovering his or her new restaurant location several weeks prior to the shuffle itself. The energy in each restaurant was filled with promise and excitement as restaurants revealed to foodies and fans who would be leading them on a scrumptious sojourn.
This year saw Blaine Wetzel (Willow’s Inn, Lummi Island) heading up Brae, Adeline Grattard (Yam’tcha, Paris) at Attica, Mikael Jonsson (Hedone, London) for Orana and Alex Atala (D.O.M, Sao Paulo) at the helm for Momofuku, and we couldn’t have been more excited to be a part of it!
