Eventually, the rebels become accepted by the Establishment. Even in culinary circles. Twenty-one years ago, the fixed price menus Charlie Trotter was offering from a converted home on Armitage made some longtime chefs regard the brash upstart as a "reckless fusionist."
Today, he's touting the TurboChef 360° oven, capable of cooking four racks of lamb perfectly in six minutes.
Honestly, Trotter's demo makes me want one of those bad.
