Synopsis by Madeline Cavalieri
The Frugal Gourmet, with chef Jeff Smith, is an amazingly thorough video collection with over 80 episodes that include food recipes from around the world. In each episode, Smith demonstrates several simple but important recipes. This episode uses chocolate in lots of interesting ways, with recipes like Cocoa Black Bean Soup, Cocoa Rye Bread, Green Chile Brownies, and Chocolate Poultry Sauce. There are also recipes for Chocolate Drink and Mexican Chocolate Drink. Smith not only cooks, but discusses the theological and anthropological histories of the dishes he prepares. He brings humor and wide-ranging knowledge into the kitchen.
