Mist Project

Looking to kick off 2012 with an auspicious beginning? If so, perhaps look no further than the upcoming ‘Mist Project’ which rolls into SLC on January 19th.

Mist:SaltLake is a popup restaurant with lofty ambitions. During the travelling restaurants month long stint in Salt Lake City, it aims to serve up Michelin quality cuisine on a nightly basis. After that, the show moves on to San Francisco before other cities both nationally and internationally.

I’m normally a tad skeptical of these guerrilla operation, but with chef Gavin Baker at the helm, these folks are surely in with a shout of creating something special. Chef Baker you see just happened to be junior sous chef at the massively lauded Fat Duck (Bray, UK) for two years. It would also be amiss to not mention the fact that the Fat Duck was happily placing in the worlds top three restaurants routinely at that very time. I’d wager Chef Baker picked up more than a few tricks from molecular gastronomy stalwart Heston Blumenthal along the way. Indeed, as part of a PR pack I received, some of Chef Baker’s nightlights were items such as: “small amuses like the Crispy Pork Lollipop with Nitro ‘Dipping Dots’ and edible landscapes such as the ‘Sunrise From My Plane Window'”. Your typical meal this likely won’t be.
