Seattle has transformed from a logging town into one of the most desirable cities in the USA. But for newcomers, it can be difficult to meet new people. It’s a phenomenon known to the locals as “the Seattle Freeze.” In this episode of “The Special,” we meet Zac Reynolds, a chef using unique flavors to spark conversations among customers at his restaurant Cook Weaver. We hear from Reynolds about his use of diverse ingredients, including locally-made Ethiopian Injera, and how he puts his own spin on Eurasian fusion food. Along the way, we tour Seattle’s pop culture museum, fishing ports and a pinball arcade.
We’ll sit with culture makers from the neighborhood as chef Zac Reynolds prepares dishes featuring injera.
BMW’s first ever X7 inspired “The Special” by bringing together a new collaboration between two expert storytellers — The New York Times’s T Brand Studio and The Infatuation for the first time. Together, they examine culture and food in a way that only they can.
