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. The Pacific Northwest is a fabulous place for fresh fish and seafood. This episode includes Pickled Salmon, Clams and White Wine Sauce, Pink Scallops, Smoked Oysters, and Smoked Salmon Tartare. Smith not only cooks, but also discusses the theological and anthropological histories of the dishes he prepares. He brings humor and wide-ranging knowledge into the kitchen.
