Culinary Institute of America

 

This series combines flavorful ingredients, top chefs and beautiful locations for the ultimate dining experience. In the third season of the Emmy-nominated series, Australian chef Pete Evans goes coast-to-coast, traveling to Nashville, Louisville, Miami, San Antonio, Hawaii and other locations across the United States to meet the best chefs in each area and cook a delicious meal that incorporates local and seasonal ingredients.

 

Culinary Institute of America
Pete joins three award-winning chefs – Germano Minin, Bruno Difabio and Tim Reardon – at the prestigious Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, New York for an Italian feast. First stop is Arthur Avenue Marketplace in the Bronx to pick-up some wonderful Italian ingredients, then on to Sprout Creek Farm in Poughkeepsie to source some local goat cheese. On the menu tonight at the CIA: classic caponata with prosciutto, grilled octopus salad, sun-dried tomato gnocchi and Bruno’s famous pizzas.

 

THE MIND OF A CHEF
Bourbon

 

Chef Edward Lee embarks on adventures that take him out of the kitchen and into the depths of what moves and motivates him — seeking the history of what it means to be a chef, the key to making a perfect bourbon, the call of that culinary siren, the American South. One part Southern soul, one part Asian spice and one part New York attitude, Lee is a Korean American who grew up in Brooklyn, trained in NYC kitchens and has spent the better part of a decade honing his vision at 610 Magnolia Restaurant in Louisville, Kentucky.

 

 

Bourbon
What makes bourbon the classic American spirit, and why is it so closely associated with Kentucky? Ed and his band of merry men and women, including whiskey patriarch Julian Van Winkle, Matt Jamie from Bourbon and Barrel Foods, Chef Paul Qui and special guest and bourbon lover Aisha Tyler, set out to distill this prized and often misunderstood liquor down to its many parts and enjoy it both in the glass and on the plate.

Impermanence:
Ed dissects the evolution of a dish and the public’s changing tastes. He tries his hand at cooking alternative meats (like alligator); enjoys a recipe that has stood the test of time, Maw Maw’s Ravioli from Hog & Hominy’s Andrew Ticer and Michael Hudman; and creates a quickly disappearing dim sum dish with Stuart Brioza, as he looks toward the future of food.
