Not everyone can pull off fusion, but when an executive chef has a lifetime of experience in two different cuisine styles, and it pairs well together, you don’t ask questions. Mintwood Place, a recurring Top 25 restaurant in Washington, D.C., celebrates the marriage of French and American cuisine with an emphasis on local ingredients throughout the Chesapeake Bay area.
The chef? Cedric Maupillier, a French-born culinary mind who is very familiar with the American dining landscape. Check out the full “Table 42” episode below, brought to you by the Foodable Network, where Chef Cedric invites us into his kitchen, tells us the story of how he got involved in the industry (it was initially a forced one), and how he ended up in D.C. to tackle the ever-growing landscape of culinary creativity.
