One question, asked by Reddit user Totoist, was:
In your opinion, what are 5 dishes that everyone needs to know how to cook?
Here was the world-famous chef’s response:
Everyone enjoys a great burger, so that’s really important. You get that really smart blend. Burger would be number one.
A healthy breakfast. Whether it’s poached eggs, smashed avocado, or an amazing omelette. Now that is crucial! That’s dish number two a really good breakfast.
Number three would be a braising dish. Like a braised short rib because it’s the kind of thing you can cook on a Monday and still eat on Friday. So a braising dish, whether it’s braised short rib, tri-tip, just something really cool braised!
Then from a healthy point of view; a chicken dish, in terms of a white protein, would be a go to favorite with a chicken. Whether it’s a sauteed chicken or even a delicious marinade with chicken caesar salad.
Finally, for my fifth dish, I would turn that into some amazing cake. It could be a Blondie or a Chocolate Brownie, something you can give as a gift. Taking amazing deserts, as a gift, to somebody and eating it with them is so much more enjoyable then buying them a scarf, or a Jumper, or a pair of socks.
Spending three or four hours making this thing, and spending hundreds of dollars on ingredients, and doing something magical,is far more exciting then buying a fucking jumper that you know they aren’t going to wear!
