Former Hamtramck restaurateur, AKA the "revolving chef," goes on national cooking spree

Sometimes the chef changes as often as tonight's specials. It's good to see this culinary concept that became rooted in Detroit and Hamtramck way back when go national.

Excerpt:

"Since our email filters were tightened up a few years ago, the number of entreaties I receive from Nigerians has dropped considerably.

One that made its way through came from a chef, Tunde Wey. He sought attention, not my bank account number.

Wey, 31, born in Lagos and living in Detroit for the last 14 years, co-founded a restaurant in Hamtramck, Mich., called (revolver) that rotates guest chefs every weekend.

Wey also cooked pop-up Nigerian dinners, based on the Yoruba and Igbo food of his youth.

After selling off his shares in (revolver), Wey began he called a haphazard cooking tour of the cities he had always dreamed of seeing."
