Grant Achatz Makes Time 100

Achatz-hawk.jpgGrant Achatz just got another notch in his belt. The Alinea and Next chef was named to the 2011 Time 100, a list of the most influential people in the world. Achatz, listed alongside people like Joe Biden, Gabrielle Giffords, Michelle Obama, Tom Ford, Mark Zuckerberg and—gasp!—Justin Bieber, was noted as a "culinary innovator" (take that, Mariani). "I have always believed that there are many cooks in the world but not many chefs in the true sense of the word," The French Laundry chef/owner Thomas Keller writes in the magazine. "Grant exemplifies the modern chef — and nothing, not even tongue cancer, has impeded his vision and desire." [Time]
