Service Impeccable – I now understand the meaning of being at a Michelin Three Star establishment (although it was the daughter restaurant Per Se in NYC that was just granted that status days prior to my dining experience). No doubt, TFL would score equal if not higher (although there is no such thing) being the tried, true and originator of Keller’s brain children. The staff present was in control of the whole evening’s events from the moment we walked in at 6:30pm until we left nearing mid-night. Attentive to our needs (in particular, my food allergies), our table of six was taken care of by a team at nearly a 1:1 ratio. Before each new plate, our flatware was delivered to best accompany the next dish to follow. Orchestrated as if performing at a ballet, each server was swift, quiet in graceful in delivery. Most impressive, as we were seated at a table on the upper floor of the establishment, was how each server glided up the stairs with their respective dishes, and how, with one gentle swoop, we were all served at once. Very soothing descriptions of our dishes followed these repeated dances, never intruding on any conversation that the table may have been deeply discussing. Mind you, this was probably a 4-4.5 hour affair. With three of the members in our party were taking pictures as each course arrived, there were no interruptions in service as we were even presented with the whole perfectly plated shared product to capture digitally before being disassembled or set in front of others. Although each server had a differing task, Zion Curiel, the member who started our evening and ensured that things were flowing smoothly throughout, was particularly dear to my heart. This may have been due to the fact that in reviewing one of the images I took during the dessert course, and seemingly to recognize it as being similar dishware that a friend owned (and hence wanting to take some evidence back for comparison – TFL does use its own line of dishware, but incidentally this plate was exactly the same as my friend’s and can be purchased at Caban), Zion, returning to our table exclaimed gently “Oh, I’ve never seen that before.” Embarrassed by how extreme I must have seemed, I tried to play it off as a normal occurrence and said nothing in defense. However, shortly after, he once again approached our table and asked specifically, “Would you like to have a tour of our kitchen? You can see all our dishes there.” Not wanting to refuse the kitchen tour, I replied with much enthusiasm (perhaps garnering the jealousy of others around that may have wished that they too were mistaken to have taken some strange obsession with china) and was soon whisked away (yes the rest of my table also got to join) to a bright and spotless, well run kitchen. As I took images of the chefs at work that night (unfortunately Mr. Keller was still in Paris)… and admired the dishware (I know, I had to keep up the charade, haha), in addition to seeing the walk-in and other nooks of the quiet factory, the chef du jour was gracious enough to chat with our group and pointed to the flat screen on the kitchen's wall which featured Per Se's kitchen, live! Zion was also able to convince a handful of kitchen staff to sign my copy of the night’s menu and noted the individuals to look out for over the next five years. The highlight of my evening was when I was allowed to accompany Zion to another area of the restaurant where he put all the menus as our evening’s memento into a French Laundry bag, an additional French Laundry clothespin as a keepsake for my culinary friend and, perhaps given to VIPs, some bags of French Laundry chocolate tablets (quality chocolate with crisp praline scattered throughout, also embossed with the clothespin symbol) as a parting gift. He then proceeded to escort me back up the stairs to join my table (while carrying my bag of treats. Imagine the look of everyone’s faces when I re-joined them) before the neighboring table (perhaps noticing that we had the pleasure of a tour and wanting the same) departed for the kitchen. It was quite clear that our party was most likely the youngest party present that evening; however we never felt out of place. We were treated respectfully and as first time VIPs, having all our questions and concerns answered or addressed.
Ork Tower - Laying out your work
Ork Tower - Laying out your work
For this part you will need foam core, a ruler, some pencils and a razor or other sharp cutting knife like an exact-o blade. A cutting board would be good, I tried it without and needless to say, my wife loves her new kitchen table. (Kids – ALWAYS use a cutting board and be very cautious with any cutting items) There are some other odd cuts in the plan, some calling for 45o angle, other to be “tongued”. With the 45o angle, your simply going to cut along the edge at close as possible to this angle, giving a beveled edge. This will help join to angled pieces and will look like the one posted below. The tongued pieces make joining edges easy, and are very simple to do. Simply cut the foam core along the joining edge, but do not cut all the way through. You only need to cut through the top paper, and the foam, leave the bottom paper. You will than cut into the foam along the paper, so that you have an edge that looks like the ones below. Now it is time to cut out your pieces, and have some fun and before I forget. Mark your pieces so you can remember how they fit together and where they go. Remember this is an Ork building, getting this perfect is not really a problem! Starting with the floor, I slowly start drawing out my pieces. The floor will have some strange angles, and will also be duplicated in the roof, so I will have to carefully lay it out once and cut it cleanly. He floor will be cut as flat and perpendicular to the foam core as possible, this will give a nice edge for the walls to be glued and pinned to. The roof will be cut at a slight angle, so that it can slide in and out of the building, and rest on some supports that will be glued to the walls. At 2 inches up from the bottom, I will mark the a line to show where my roof supports will be glued later. Once you have cut out all the pieces for your build, you are ready to start putting it together. You will need a few items. You will need your cut pieces, just the ones for the floor your working on (I’ll be working on the 1st Floor in this part of the tutorial). You will also need straight pins, the kind you can find in sewing stores or just about anywhere. Lastly you will need PVC Glue and the Exact-O blade. Don’t worry, PVC Glue is just a fancy name for “White Glue”, the kind most of us ate in school at one point or another. I still like the taste, but don’t let your friends catch you eating it! Lay your floor piece flat against a flat surface and choose which edge you will start with. The flat surface will help you keep your edges flush, but remember to put something down or you might be buying your wife or mom a new kitchen table (see my comment in the “Cutting the Structure” section). Trash bags or newspaper should work. Coat only the edge of the floor, along the exposed foam, and line up the appropriate wall section so that the edge that is not “Tongued” is lined up along a corner. Push the straight pins into the wall, and through into the floor, and wipe off any excess glue. The straight pins will add strength to the model, as well as hold the walls in place while you move to the next piece. The next piece will be the wall that will connect to the wall you just placed, the tongued end piece overlapping the new wall end section. This prevents having to seal all the foam, and give a firm area to pin from along the edge. Note on the pins, if you do not hide them, you can paint them later to look like rivets. On this section, you will glue the floor edge and the edge that sits into the tongued edge. Continue around the floor section till you have worked around to the beginning, and let it dry. If you like, you can reinforce the edges, by tracing them with a small amount of glue and working it in with your finger, just to fill the cracks and seams. You will do this for all the floors, or if you have only the one floor, your done, cut the roof and get ready to detail it out.
