Your Food Questions Answered

It's my mission to make the world a better place to eat. I feel this is accomplished by answering all food questions from everywhere on the planet. No, I don't think I can get this done in one night. I'm not the Santa Claus of cooking. I'll solve the world's cooking problems one at a time, and it starts with the question you leave in the comment box below.

My hero, Michael Pollan, says "learn to cook and you gain power over your food choices". I certainly agree, but as a professional Chef, I can't advise you to NEVER go to a restaurant. A great restaurant is definitely one of the world's best places to eat, but they control the food, you don't.

Restaurant and take-out meals take more of your food budget than effective grocery shopping does. Meals prepared by someone else are designed for your enjoyment, often at the expense of good nutrition. You might say that take-out is faster than cooking at home, but once you consider the time spent traveling and unpacking your food, a home cooked meal could actually be faster.

I don't want to take you away from enjoyment of restaurant food, I want to increase your sense of pride in preparing a restaurant quality meal at home. You can cook like your favorite restaurant chef by discovering just a few of the techniques they use.

However, you may not KNOW that you need these techniques. You can't miss something you never had. What most people tell me is they DO know they're having a recurring problem or frustration in the kitchen. It's these food questions that lead to a search for answers.

While I've taught thousands of people all over the world through my online cooking classes and cooking DVDs, I know I haven't reached everyone. There are still cooking frustrations that repeat themselves every night for home cooks. Those are the issues I want to solve, solve them now, and solve them permanently.

Please leave your food questions in the comment box below. It's your opportunity to steer the direction of future blog posts, videos, webcasts, articles, and live events that will be coming in the next months.

Please be specific. Yes, we all want to "just cook better". I get it. But, what SPECIFICALLY will help you cook better?

I'm really excited to get out of my commercial kitchen, stop talking professional Chef language, and take a peek into your home kitchen to solve the biggest obstacle to you becoming a better cook, or cooking more often to give you power over your food choices.
