Chef Fritz Blank

    Hour 2
    What makes a great meal? Is it the cultivated fresh ingredients or is it one’s friends and family seated around the table sharing stories? Our guest, CHEF FRITZ BLANK created the space for relaxed dining and beautiful food to come together for almost thirty years in his famous Philadelphia restaurant, Deux Cheminees. He will come in to talk to us about food including the value of our region’s tomatoes, how to shroud a turkey and what authenticity means to him. Blank has donated his 10,000 + cookbook collection to the University of Pennsylvania. He is currently retired in Thailand.
