Grant Achatz of Alinea fame likes burgers, apparently. His burger recipe isn't what surprised me with this article and video clip, no. It's how his name is pronounced. I think that the source is pretty definitive, too. It's him, saying his own name. I always assumed that it was pronounced ay-SHATZ, or perhaps ay-CHATZ. I was WAY off. It's actually AKE-etz. Also, perhaps it was the sauve, serious photography that he's always in, but I didn't expect Grant to be so... nerdy. As he was making the burger, I half-expected him to drop a Dungeons & Dragons reference. Which would have been really cool.
