Chef KPE is nationally recognized as a driving force in the Modernist Food Movement. Popular for such eccentric dishes as his Blueberry 8 DAY Fried Pork and Bubble Gum Grape Soda Chicken Hearts, he rethinks conceptions of flavor, comfort and cuisine. Mastering international conceptions of flavors has led him to build a clientele of foodies, celebrities, food historians and politicians — including President Barack Obama.
Maps Glover hails from the small town Laplata, Maryland. Growing up there, feelings of isolation led him to drawing as a way to grapple with his thoughts and emotions. He describes himself as a storyteller, and through his work shows “how unified we can be in our search for harmony.”
