By resurrecting its cuisine, Chef Michael Dowd tries to preserve a tribe’s traditional way of life – Men’s Journal

Michael O’Dowd collects swords, races BMWs, and asks little old Indian ladies for their grandmothers’ recipes. As executive chef of Kai restaurant at the Sheraton Wild Horse Pass resort outside Phoenix, O’Dowd takes Native American ingredients and marries them to haute techniques, pairing wild elk with tagliatelle, bathing sea urchins in a fondue of piquillo peppers, and infusing cotton candy with Amarillo chiles.

Food is a vehicle for memory; it is our first encounter with metaphor. A favorite food, a special dish, can bring back a rush of details about people long gone.  Meditations on a madeleine cookie can recreate an entire lost world. My great aunt-Lil died at age 98, and, though we could see it coming, it never occurred to us to write down her schnecken recipe. In the many years since, it has become a double blow–Aunt Lil is dead and we have lost the keys home.
