Interview with Trey Foshee

Though ya'll might be interested in this cool little video interview with Trey Foshee of George's in La Jolla. Entitled "San Diego on a Plate" he explains his philosophy and approach to crafting a menu to fit the local environment and lifestyle

    It's very popular on this board to bash the food in SD and say it isn't very good, has no value and better versions can *easily* be found in other places (i.e. NYC, Chi, LV, LA, SF, Berlin) (And yes, I am as guilty of this as anyone else)

    But what I really liked about this video was that Trey took some time to try and identify what food and ingredients are in SD and the process he goes through in developing a dish that he thinks refelcts the local area. I would hazard a guess that his fellow chefs in Cooks Confab use a similar process. It just takes a few to get the ball rolling...

      Trey is relaxed yet thoroughly brilliant, and speaks well for what he is doing. This is a very enjoyable video.

        I got to speak with Trey at Georges last week, if I recall correctly he said the Georges team actually handled that production themselves, which I thought was really cool for such a great video. I hope they'll do more.

          Wow, Tom Chino actually lets Trey film and take photos at the vegetable stand.
