Behind the Swinging Doors: A Look Inside Recette’s Kitchen
November 1, 2013
What goes on behind the kitchen doors at Recette?
From the Bar
The kitchen at Recette isn't much bigger than what's in this photo. Executive sous chef Edward Blumfield lets out a yawn while chatting with expeditor Breno Costa, and Luis Capellan prepares dishes on the left.
One of the chefs makes chocolate molasses gateaux.
No, the Recette kitchen doesn't keep photos of restaurant critics on the wall, just photos of chef Schenker's son.
There's not a lot of action in the kitchen, so while one chef texts, another prepares a dish for the dining room.
View of the Dining Room
A window above the sinks gives a view of the dining room from the kitchen.
During the quiet time before the dinner rush starts, the chefs spend time on their phones.
