Laurent Gras fueled by Gatorade
Anybody who has eaten at L2O—or paid attention to the L2O blog—knows that chef Laurent Gras isn't afraid of dishes that require many tiny tedious steps. Consider that most meals at L2O involve at least 12 courses, and you have a very busy kitchen.
A post on Gourmet.com today explains where Gras gets the energy to deal with those details: Gatorade. And PowerBar gels. And a few espressos. Granted, these are the foodstuffs that Gras chooses to get him through a day of cycling. But I'm guessing that a Saturday night in L2O's kitchen requires just as much stamina.
