Better cooking comes from deeper understanding. This instructive food series from acclaimed cookbook author Michael Ruhlman highlights essential kitchen techniques, ingredients and ideas. It draws from Ruhlman’s best-selling books, decades of experience and personal relationships with the country’s best chefs. Driven by an insatiable curiosity to learn and teach, Ruhlman approaches his topics every episode by exploring the stories of one notable chef, and one non-chef with surprising connections to the focal ingredients – all with the goal of getting listeners to engage with food more fully, and to cook more confidently.
In the final installment of our “From Home” series of mini-episodes, we hear from a chef, a bartender, and a food writer.
