Not worth mentioning until yesterday's sad announcement, of a German amateur chef who lost his hands in the name of molecular gastronomy, is Will Goldfarb's newest venture. If you ever wondered how an American amateur chef could get his trembling hands on 10 gallons of liquid nitrogen for fun and profit, WillEquipped is the answer.
At an AIGA conference last fall, Goldfarb spoke of developing "a collection of super hard-to-find tools for professional chefs." And for once, his promise lives up to the hype. He's the first retailer of cryo guns, dewars, withdrawal tubes and cryo gloves for the general public. Alas, no section yet for prosthetics. Maybe he'll relabel the sections "The Iceman Cometh" and "He also taketh away."
Now because some rumors never freeze off and die, it's worth mentioning a few weeks back Goldfarb and friend Zak Pelaccio cooked a dinner for WillPowder distributor Ciao Imports during the Fancy Food Show. And how were the chefs billed? Once again, from The Windsor.
