Eddy is the head chef at Daniel Boulud's famous Daniel restaurant in New York and Tama is a keen forager who knows an awful lot about the wild herbs, flowers, plants and funghi that grow in the meadow near her home.
They met after Tama decided to take Eddy a plant when she dined at Daniel and ever since then the pair have worked together with Eddy creating some wonderful dishes from Tama's foraged ingredients. The interview with Tama and Eddy is a look at how the relationship formed, how they approach the working relationship now and why foraging now has such a huge interest from around the world.

FDL spoke with him about his kitchen philosophy, got some cooking tips direct from the master and discovered that Puglisi thinks that fine dining is changing - find out why in this telling interview.
