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 teaches home cooks about seafood dishes and the best wine to accompany them. Recipes include Salmon with Green Sauce, Prawns Sautéed with Garlic and Wine, Fried Fish New Orleans, Oysters in Stolen Sauce, and Squid in Mustard Ginger Sauce. 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.
