More Boston area restaurant chefs are finding themselves in the spotlight — both for big cooking awards and for celebrity appearances.
Take Myers + Chang chef Karen Akunowicz.
We wanted to see her at work — and hopefully get a taste as well.
So, we visited Akunowicz at Myers + Chang in the South End, where she walked us through one of her favorite recipes.
- "Akunowicz, executive chef at Myers + Chang, was a 2015 finalist for James Beard's Best Chef: Northeast award. And just a few months later, it was announced she would star on the thirteenth season of Bravo's reality hit, Top Chef. (She's still in the running as we enter tonight's third episode.)"
- "We can root for two local contestants on the next season of “Top Chef,” which takes competitors around California."
- "They’re recipes that I grew up with, or that I’ve been making for me and Christopher, or that we’ve been making at the restaurant. And I think the same for Karen — there are a lot of recipes in the book that she’s created."
