Nobody But Your Cutting Board Has to See You Cry
I’m really happy to share this video I made with Tasted Channel, an awesome YouTube food and cooking vertical. The show is called Star Chef Secrets – it’s all about chefs sharing, well, secrets for creating great-tasting food. If you watch, you’ll see me make a favorite BGSK recipe, one so classic it even turned up in the book: Moroccan Chicken Stew. (You can find the recipe here, too).
As I sliced four onions for the camera, I found myself shedding buckets of tears. We had to wait 15 minutes for the redness to leave my poor eyes. This near-fiasco led to my favorite line in the video–“nobody but your cutting board has to see you cry”–which also got me thinking about cooking in private (not too stressful) versus cooking in front of others (super stressful!). If you’re hosting Thanksgiving for a crowd, do yourself a favor and finish your prepwork and most of your cooking before anyone else walks into your kitchen.
And now…here’s the video. (You can watch it directly on YouTube here.)
Also…happy Thanksgiving! As much as the holiday is about food, it’s also about gratitude. Thank you, readers, for tuning in and speaking up. Thanks for cooking BGSK recipes and sharing them with friends. You’re one of the biggest things I’m thankful for.
I’ll leave you with a Turkey Reuben, a dream sandwich for your leftover sliced turkey. See you next week!
