Chef Grant Achatz has cancer

The link for the article is below. Along with Wylie Dufresne and Homaro Cantu, Achatz is without a doubt one of the top five most innovative and influential American chefs over the past couple of years.

Tongue cancer, too. Very very sad.

Less is not more. More is more and more is fabulous.

Man I hope he makes it. I've read about how this guy got his start with Keller and then shifted gears after a stage at El Bulli. I've always been real excited to see what he comes up with next, and I think it's great that Chicago has another great name in the restaurant world.

The fact that he's a controversial and innovative chef has little to do with how sad it is that he's suffering from tongue cancer.

Imagine a chef who can't taste?

I wish him a successful treatment and full recovery.
