AFI DOCS, an international documentary festival in the nation’s capital, played host last week to our very own Mode FOODIE production, Allen and Alinea: One Man’s Odyssey Through an Iconic Cookbook.

When Allen Hemberger dined at Grant Achatz’s pioneering Alinea restaurant in Chicago in 2008, he had no idea it would set him off on a 5-year odyssey to the heart of modernist cuisine — a journey on which he would lose and then rediscover his creative confidence. For those of you that weren’t in attendance or haven’t seen it yet, it’s not too late! Check it out HERE:
