Corton, the anticipated collaboration between Drew Nieporent and English chef Paul Liebrandt, may not be opening this weekend, but shown above is a possible preview of the restaurant’s food: Lamb with cooking juices, salad, and pommes fondant.

On day three of the StarChefs ICC, Daniel Boulud spoke about his two American chef de cuisines: "Sometimes Damian (Sansonetti) and Jim (Leiken) cook better French food than me!" This got some laughs, especially from the French cooks in the audience, but evidence suggests that Boulud was being sincere.

This past Sunday that began the three-day Starchefs.com International Chefs Congress in the magnificent ruin known as the Park Avenue Armory, I had the chance to ask Heston Blumenthal, Marco Pierre White and Anthony Bourdain this question: If you had to choose between first-rate ingredients prepared by a second-rate chef, or second-rate (but not spoiled) ingredients cooked up by a first-rate chef, which would you choose?

This past weekend I attended the 3rd annual Starchefs Chef’s Congress . It is always a great time to catch up with my friends and chef colleagues.  This year was extremely inspirational with fantastic demos and lectures by Heston Blumenthal, Charlie Trotter, Daniel Boulud, Rene Redzepi, Joan Roca with Candido Lopez, and a great finale by Grant Achatz. I left with a very strong sense of nature, our earths bounty, a reminder of my first introduction to the smell of greatly prepared food, and a strong desire to re-dig into my heritage and express it through cooking……

Yesterday, chef Grant Achatz of Alinea was slated to deliver a presentation on his eclectic serving implements (the antiplate, tripod, and squid) at the StarChefs ICC. First, however, he had a few words in response to “something that came up with a group of gentlemen,” referring to Anthony Bourdain and English chef Marco Pierre White’s controversial Sunday night panel.

The three-day StarChefs International Chefs Congress is upon us and TONY is reporting live from the scene. Thus far, the industry-only affair has attracted the kind of celebu-toque quotient that could bring saliva to the lips to anyone with a blogger account and a dream. Heston Blumenthal, Charlie Trotter, Rick Moonen, Michael Ruhlman, Anthony Bourdain, Marco Pierre White and Drew Nieporent weaved through the crowds yesterday while Paul Liebrandt prepared for his sous vide workshop. Sam Mason worked the pastry seminar, and Anne Burrell joined Josh Eden (Shorty’s .32), John Fraser (Dovetail), Gavin Kaysen (Café Boulud), Yoshinori Ishii (Morimoto), Neil Ferguson (Allen & Delancey) and Josh Emett (Gordon Ramsay) in a Rising Stars panel. Tune in throughout the day for more chefly sightings.

"Great cooks teach themselves," Marco Pierre White told his fellow chefs at this year's Starchefs.com's 3rd Annual International Chefs Congress, which began yesterday at NYC's the Park Avenue Armory. Well, apparently the nearly 2,000 industry professionals attending the three-day event don't agree, as they have eagerly signed up for hands-on workshops, cooking demonstrations and lectures taught by more than 60 top chefs like Marcus Samuelsson (NYC's Aquavit), Wylie Dufresne (NYC's wd-50) and Traci Des Jardins (SF's Jardinière).

Where does a three star chef from England get live frogs? Heston Blumenthal, of the infamous bacon and egg ice cream and other provocative alchemy at The Fat Duck in the Berkshires of England put in an SOS for live frogs to chef Joe Ng at Chinatown Brasserie and consultant Eddie Schoenfeld. Ng bought a bucket of kicky beasts in Chinatown so Blumenthal could test his variation of a 15th century almond blancmange, planning to replace chicken breast with frog in the recipe for his new television show, Feast. (Seems you can’t buy live frogs in England. How civilized.)

Metromix caught Marco Pierre White referring to Alain Ducasse as "soulless" during his talk with Anthony Bourdain at the Star Chefs International Chefs Congress yesterday. When moderator Michael Ruhlman asked the two to define the role of a chef, White, who spent some weeks shooting Chopping Block here, insisted that if you put your name on a restaurant you should be in the kitchen. Bourdain, on the other hand, thought it "cruel and snobbish" to expect an aged chef to put in 90 hours a week at a stove.

Two rather interesting tidbits from Gael Green today. Todd English and his new partner Sam Hazen have made an offer for a 16,000 sq.ft. building across from Pastis, telling Green, “It would be a total gut buildup, the rooftop, the whole thing.” Second, one of Britain's most famous chefs Heston Blumenthal, in town for StarChefs, has been shooting a segment for his TV show Feast at Chinatown Brasserie, where chef Joe Ng has provided him with buckets of live frogs for a froggy version of "15th century almond blancmange."

Monkfish are huge, ugly and incredibly tasty. I first came face to face with one in Akita Prefecture last year (more on that below). Today I got to watch Chef Masaharu Morimoto of Iron Chef fame dramatically offer this fish as the sacrificial lamb of his demonstration at the annual StarChefs Congress.

At a roundtable discussion at the Star Chefs International Chefs Congress yesterday, Anthony Bourdain and Marco Pierre White bashed elaborate tasting menus. (Moderator Michael Ruhlman mostly stayed out of the debate, but seemed to be a quiet cheerleader). "I want two courses, not 18," White asserted, recounting a horrible experience when the chef kept sending out plates. Three and a half hours later, he had no idea what he was eating—and he wanted it to stop. "I was a fool to go with the tasting menu. All I wanted was my bill, and they said no. 'You haven't had your pudding yet, sir.' I didn't want the pudding."

Even when the cameras aren’t rolling, Anthony Bourdain’s booming exuberance toward the highs and lows of the modern-day culinary scene (ah, the many lows) reports for duty.

Case in point: Prior to yesterday’s StarChef’s International Chefs Congress “Role of a Chef” panel at the Park Avenue Armory, we witnessed Bourdain struggle with the concept of the at-home espresso machine. “That absolutely looks like urine,” said Bourdain to a companion, referring to the jaundiced-hued liquid spewing from the apparatus stationed at the back of the media room. No boom mics around. No people, really. Just him and a bush-league mechanical barista. And he let it have it.

Starchefs.com has just released the stellar lineup for its International Chefs Congress taking place later this month in New York City's Park Avenue Armory with, amusingly (oddly?) enough, a catalog featuring two underwear-clad, cut-out chef paper dolls. But the humor doesn't stop there. Among the talks and workshops led by some of the food world's most talented personalities, two get the prize for most creative name: "Voulez-vous sous vide avec moi (ce soir)"? (Paul Liebrandt at the soon-to-open Corton) and "Gin… The Other White Meat" (Audrey Saunders at Pegu Club).

The Starchefs.com Chef Congress begins tomorrow, Sunday 9/14, at the Armory on Park Avenue and East 66th, and runs through Tuesday. I'll be signing books at the Kitchen Arts & Letters booth near the main stage Sunday from 1:30 to 2. I'm only praying that insufferable Bourdain character won't be there at the same time. He tends to hog all the book buyers.

This evening I had the opportunity to see the construction of a huge event, Star Chefs 2008. I was there for a walk through, more designed for those presenting rather than speaking, though it was well worth the trip. I had forgotten how much work takes place behind the scenes to put on such an event. Tonight I caught a glimpse. I caught up briefly with a few friends, though I spent more time observing with an awestruck expression.  I had the opportunity to meet a few chefs whom we have admired for years. It was an incredible feeling to actually be able to say hello to them and to share my enthusiasm for their inspiring work.

What are the best young chefs saying about their success?  You may get to eat at their restaurants, but you don't often get to hear what these Star Chefs say to their peers.  Or in some cases, what they don't say.  This year's International Chefs Congress arrives in town this Sunday with chefs from around the world.  The three-day symposium will be held at the Park Avenue Armory.

Admission is limited to industry types, but that umbrella is large and covers everyone from chefs and bartenders to purveyors and publicists. It's worth looking into your eligibility (or finding a way to sneak in) just to witness Paul Liebrandt teach "Voulez-vous Sous Vide Avec Moi (Ce Soir)?"

Chefs aren’t the only ones who feel pressure in the kitchen.
Recently, famed chef Joel Robuchon, who has been using sous vide
for over 20 years, spoke about the technique at the Star Chefs International Chef
Congress
here in New York City and demonstrated how he is able to cater an event
for 5000 guests and deliver a perfectly cooked piece of duck. When one can take a
piece of foie gras, place it atop a piece of duck breast, wrap it in a cabbage leaf and
cook both proteins, which have different cooking times, to perfection using this
technique – you know they have to be on to something.
