I sit down with Disruption Mag to discuss seven things that’ll change the way you think about cooking, from tasting your food at every stage of the process to practicing the correct ways to cut your ingredients.

The best thing I ate last week was a simple taco plate at Pineda’s on East Lake Street in Minneapolis. I was shooting a pilot for a new series we’re developing for Travel Channel and I had a 10 minute break. Realizing I was a block away, I ran in the rain to Pineda and chowed down on two carnitas tacos and two chicken chipotle tacos. Everything was simply beyond perfect, from the corn masa tortillas crisped in lard on the griddle to the home spun fillings with a simple cilantro and onion garnish. And naturally, I had to wash it all down with a Jarrito’s Tamarindo.

This pasta dish with asparagus-pistachio pesto is from my days as a chef at Café Un Deux Trois in the 1990s. I’ve made this recipe for hungry crowds ever since with amazing results.

One pound of beef is plenty for four when it’s served with this generous herb and green onion salad.

The perfect marriage of sweet, sour and citrusy flavors – and incredibly easy to make.

This recipe is obviously inspired by the classic Vietnamese summer roll, by way of Senegal.

I love paella. I often do mine on my grill, over cherry and hickory hardwood coals. The crust develops superbly, while the aroma and flavor of the fire convect into the open pan.

I love to serve this classic fried chicken recipe with crispy twice-fried shallots and homemade bread and butter pickles. It’s a winning combination your whole family will love.

A popular Japanese dish, tataki refers to beef or fish that is quickly seared over high heat, leaving the center very rare.
