Golden Spoon

Jeannie Pierola is Tampa’s ever inventive, never tiring favorite daughter. Her kitchen’s wood flames and molecular wit can cook up charred octopus with horiatiki salad or dirty fregola, sear red snapper in espelette pepper or tangerine-grilled eggplant. She searches Florida for ingredients, the world for flavor. Explosive results. And more to come: Pierola redoes a diner as Counter Culture.
