Synopsis by Madeline Cavalieri
The Frugal Gourmet, with chef Jeff Smith, is an amazingly thorough video collection with over 80 episodes that includes food recipes from around the world. In each episode, Smith demonstrates several simple but important recipes. Meat marinades can add texture and flavor to any piece of meat, so it's important to know them well. This episode's recipes include Basic Chinese Marinade, Flank Steak in Mustard Marinade, and Chicken in Wine and Vinegar. 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.
