Welcome to the Daily Achatz, a regular dose of submissions from our ticket giveaway for Grant Achatz's book party/tasting event at Astor Center on November 6.

Do you think he scats,
That blazing Chef Achatz?

Scats as in jazz, I mean,
Improvising on simple things,

Meatloaf or popcorn becoming unfamiliar,
Guinness or garlic turned into elixir.

Passion thrumming through the core---
Some hear nonsense, others joy.

I am of the latter camp,
As long as the dish bears the stamp

Of a story, feeling, or memory,
Then I'm hooked, definitively.
