|Piccolo Chef/Owner Doug Flicker makes Fool magazine's list of most underrated chefs in the world|
We've known for quite a while that the Twin Cities has a culinary scene worth the national accolades it's been receiving. In its third issue, Fool
, the newest magazine currently taking the culinary world by storm, has reached out to a global conclave of chef's, food critics, and journalists in order to get the inside scoop on the world's most underrated chefs. Lo and behold, a Minneapolis native has made the list, taking the Twin Cities scene worldwide.
Over 100 culinary professionals gave their input, and as a result, local chef and restaurateur Doug Flicker's name now sits among such legendary global names as Andoni Luis Aduriz, Alex Stupak, and Albert Adria (younger brother to culinary superstar Ferran Adria).

Among those to give input to the list were Noma's Rene Redzepi, Food & Wine
Magazine's Kate Krader and multi-Michelin star recipient Alain Ducasse. While the list contains many other notable names, it was Twin Cities ex-patriots Erik Anderson and Josh Habiger of the nationally-lauded Catbird Seat that nominated Chef Flicker to the prestigious list of global culinary superstars.
Chef Flicker has been at the forefront of the Twin Cities food scene for decades working stints in some of the cities most progressive restaurants including D'Amico Cucina, Porter & Frye, and his first original concept, Auriga. Currently, Flicker is the chef and owner of South Minneapolis' Piccolo, and he just recently opened a beach-side eatery on Lake Nokomis which has been aptly named Sandcastle.
