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 provides recipes to create a molded meal which, as Smith explains, is beneficial for entertaining because the meal is prepared ahead of time. He prepares Salmon Mousse, Pressed Tongue and Pork Loaf, Chicken and Lemon Mold, and Ice Cream Bombe for dessert. 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.
