Noshing with Wright, Part 2

Last fall we presented a story about architect and gourmet chef Steven Freeman from Manchester, New Hampshire cooking his way across the Frank Lloyd Wright landscape in Wisconsin:

Steven and his cooking knives, spatulas, etc. were at it again in May, not only with a repeat performance at Wright’s Mollica House, but also at Wright’s A.W. Gridley House in Batavia, Illinois. His menu is always developed with the stewards of the particular house – in this case Peter and Laura Frost – and locally sourced. If you are the steward of a Wright home and these photos whet your appetite, Steven is looking for opportunities to cook in your home. His guiding principal is that while he is eager to experience as many Wright homes as possible he thinks it would be inconsiderate to do so without doing something for you in return. Bon Appetit!
