Who are the worlds most underrated chefs -according to Eater National


Thank you Eater National for another great piece of foodie information.

Eater national asked 100+ chefs and food writers and here is what they said!

Food writers and awards committees spend countless hours debating the world’s greatest chefs and restaurants, but here’s a question that often goes unasked: Who is the world’s most underrated chef? Fool Magazine’s Per-Anders and Lotta Jorgensen posed that question to more than 100 food writers and chefs around the world, including the likes of René Redzepi, Alice Waters, Ben Shewry, Alain Ducasse, Food & Wine’s Kate Krader and Eater’s Gabe Ulla. Now, all of those answers have been published in the third and most recent issue of the award-winning magazine. While Per-Anders Jorgensen notes that there are some repeats — Albert Adria and Paolo Lopriore among them — he says he was surprised at the variety of chefs whose names came up in the poll. “As you can see, it’s quite unpredictable,” he says.

While some picked their local favorites, others thought outside of the box; Time Out London’s Guy Dimond wrote that cooks are underrated while chefs are overrated, while TedX food curator Jill Dupleix replied, “Every female chef in the world.” Two chefs even named themselves, perhaps jokingly (and perhaps not). Most of the responses are given without explanation, but a few of them are laid out in full in the magazine spread. Fergus Henderson writes that “There are bad chefs and good chefs and the media being what it is, there’s no room for underrated.” Meanwhile, Redzepi composes a long response to what Jorgensen admits such a difficult question he doesn’t know if he could answer it himself.

That said, Jorgensen says that calling attention to chefs like those named in the survey is exactly what he and Lotta aim to do with each issue of Fool. “René, in all honesty, doesn’t really need the spotlight anymore,” he says. Someone like Thailand’s David Thompson does need that attention, he says. And, indeed, Thompson gets a mention in this list (courtesy of Attica’s Ben Shewry) and a feature in Fool’s third issue. Here’s a look at the full list of underrated chefs:

Ululani’s Hawaiian Shaved ice- Maui, HI


Ululani’s Hawaiian Shave Ice

Dreaming of a cooling smooth wow treat in the heat? Ululani’s is a must try while in Maui!
A first I wasn’t sure I was going to try it as most shaved ice that I have had in the past usually has some larger ice chunks and be coarse in nature….. The flavor board is what enticed me and the overall experience sealed the deal!
This is truly the best shaved ice I have ever had…… Smooth and creamy textures and distinct and intense fresh flavors of the island were over the top!

20130721-091100.jpg
I asked the very friendly staff what the best or most popular flavors were….. I was directed to the top flavors list and told that the papaya and mango was pressed freshly each day…. Add the coconut and the tropical flavor wow was just perfect!
The flavor choices are abundant and the options for toppings or add-ons was also very good…. I tried one with Haupia ice-cream (coconut) at the bottom of the ice or you could also add condensed milk poured over the top……

Pick your favourite flavor and enjoy! Make sure that you get a punch card, if you are with your family or friends you will fill it up quickly and after ten, you will get a freebie!
They offer a new size that isn’t on the menu board above micro is slightly smaller than the small but more than enough to satisfy your craving.

Then they put a fresh block of ice in the machine and the magic starts….. A few pokes into the ice to make way for the flavors and Hawaiian shaved ice is ready to go…….

mango, tigers blood (no, not really…just a mixture of yum flavors, and coconut topped with condensed milk!
