Publisher Description

My knowledge of finance is minuscule at best, but I do buy the Wall Street Journal on the weekends for the newspaper's coverage of cultural topics. In a recent WSJ.Magazine, there was an article by Katy McLaughlin (2011) about a neurologist/chef. Entitled "Cerebral Palate," it dealt with the career of Dr. Miguel Sanchez Romera, an Argentinean who has spent the greater part of his adult life in Spain. He is now living in New York, where he just opened a new restaurant that is considered the pinnacle of haute cuisine. Until 2009, he had a medical career in Barcelona treating patients with epilepsy and Alzheimer's disease; in addition he was chef/owner of a restaurant that earned a Michelin star just two years after it opened. (This is apparently a big deal in the culinary world.) It is for articles like this that I buy the Journal. Otherwise, I would have no knowledge of restaurants that serve, as this one does, a 12-course tasting menu that costs $245. It is probably worth the price, because Romera has a unique approach to cooking, one that is very much tied to his medical specialty and that's dubbed "neurogastronomy." McLaughlin (2011) describes one of her experiences dining with Romera:
