Stephen Satterfield has put together an interesting look into aspects of food origins; dishes, regions and techniques. "The name Whetstone is a metaphorical ode to the stone that sharpens the che'fs knife. The imagery came to me as a counterpoint to the incessant coverage of chefs in food magazines. Lost in the fetishization of the final dish, is that beautiful, meditative ritual the greets each chef at each day before the work begins. Whetstone is about that first step. It's about understanding the indispensable value of knowing the entire story."
