Beethoven of chefs

Beethoven could not hear, and Chicago Chef Achatz could not taste when afflicted with tongue cancer. A remarkable story of Diet Cokes, 20 hour work days, ignoring symptoms, multiple misdiagnoses, friendship, refusing conventional treatment, and of course, his comeback, via an experimental program at the University of Chicago. A story as complex as life itself as only the New Yorker could tell it.
