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. In this episode, the Frugal Gourmet covers American breakfast foods, with hearty recipes like Biscuits and Gravy, Fried Cornmeal Mush, Grits, Creamed and Chipped Beef on Toast, and Eggs in Fried Bread. Also, on the lighter side, there are English Muffins with Cheese Sauce and Bran Muffins. Smith not only cooks, he also discusses the theological and anthropological histories of the dishes he prepares. He brings humor and wide-ranging knowledge into the kitchen.
