What I love about American food - it is a cultural melting pot with flavors from every corner of the planet. My food will always be influenced by my training in New Orleans where I learned the traditions and flavorpalets from the best chefs of that fair city. In California, I learned the power of the freshest and tastiest produce the earth has to offer.

I like my American food rustic, bold, daring and textural. - Chef FriĆ°geir Helgason
