If you grant the premise that cooking is an art form – and we most certainly do here at Blurred – then the man you’d want to talk to about it is Chris Anderson, Executive Chef at Moto Restaurant in Chicago. Moto specializes in molecular gastronomy, the physics and chemistry of food, and is continually pushing the boundaries of what we eat (and how!)

We talk to Chris about the current state of the food industry, innovating on classic American recipes and comfort food, and the art, craft and science of “dishing it up” – coming up on Blurred Radio.
