It’s going to be sad to say goodbye to our citrus inspired plates at #Maude .. Looking forward  to March, where #artichokes will reign as our hero ingredient for the next 30 days !

5 days of the music that really gets me going begins today...with surfer dude Jack Johnson. Love him. I was a guest DJ on #KCRW  today (how awesome is that? DJ Curtis Stone..) I like the ring to that but I think I'll stick with Chef Curtis Stone right now!!!!

Anyway, here's why I bloody love JJ's song Banana Pancakes: I was really lucky enough to host a TV show in Australia called Surfing the Menu -- of course anything sounded better than a basement kitchen in London at that time -- and I said “oh yeah, absolutely, I’m in.” And then, of course, I had the show commissioned and they said, ‘so, tell us about how good a surfer you are?’ and I wasn’t a decent surfer, you know, I stood up on a board once or twice, but I was pretty pathetic. And then I started listening to a lot of surfing music and I went surfing every single day for a couple of weeks just to try and, you know, get my skill level up and Jack Johnson was at the top of my list all the time. So, I’ve got a special connection with Jack.

More tunes to share with you guys tomorrow...

Introduction

After cooking in some of the world's most amazing restaurants, I've found my passion is teaching home cooks how to make delicious food for family and friends.

I have a few golden rules. One, let Mother Nature be your guide. Start with ingredients that are organic, local and seasonal. They taste better, cost less and honor the whole earth in a natural way. Second, don't stress. You don't need to be a master chef to make gorgeous food. Just treat your ingredients simply and have fun with it. We've all burnt something at one point. It's how you learn. And three, enjoy every mouthful. Set the table, use the good china and linger. You deserve it.

Bragging rights
After culinary school, I knocked on the door of Marco Pierre White's Grill Room in London and offered to work for free just for the opportunity to work for him. Marco took me up on it and I peeled carrots for a month before he officially took me on and gave me a paycheck. From the Grill Room, I moved on to Mirabelle and then was handed the reins to Quo Vadis. In an amazing turn, my contribution to the cookbook London on a Plate lead to a TV show called Surfing the Menu back in Australia and eventually Take Home Chef in the US, where I now live with my wife and son.

I can’t be in Chicago without heading to Big Star. Located in Wicker Park (which Forbes dubbed the fourth best hipster neighborhood in the States) Big Star is so low-key it couldn’t be anything but cool. It’s the place to go late night to throw back a single barrel whiskey with the chefs just getting off work. And while the beer-battered tilapia and crispy braised pork belly tacos feel more Chicago than Tijuana, they’re amazing all the same. If you’re not into whiskey, get in the spirit with one of the out-of-this-world tequilas on their extensive spirit menu. Word to the wise: bring cash. Big Star doesn’t mess around with debit cards.

In 2009, Torrisi opened as a two-in-one homage to old-school Italian-American fare. By day, it was a sandwich shop, serving non-nonsense chicken parm and Italian combo heroes. By night, it turned into an intimate 25-seat restaurant with paper napkins and a prix fixe menu that changed constantly. It was this truly glorious celebration of typical Little Italy food. Now Torrisi has transformed once again and evolved into something even more stunning. Chefs Mario Carbone and Rich Torrisi moved the Italian American fare next door to Parm and revamped the prix fixe into a 20-course, reservation only chef’s tasting menu that is as much a love letter to New York City as it is an unbeatable meal. The original and cheaper prix fixe is still available and it still starts with the unforgettable warm mozzarella. Only now you’re getting linen napkins.

Sushi Park is the unsung hero of L.A.’s restaurant scene. Located on the second floor of a strip mall on Sunset Blvd, Sushi Park doesn’t look like the place with the best sushi in town, but it is. Everything that comes out of the kitchen is incredible. The seafood absolutely melts in your mouth. Just beware, you won’t find any California rolls or spicy tuna rolls at this hardcore sashmi/nigiri place. Get adventurous and take a seat at the sushi bar for omakase, the chef’s tasting menu. For $80, you’ll be treated to course after course of the softest, most buttery seafood you’ve ever eaten and, if you’re lucky, the blue crab hand roll.

Waterloo & City reminds me of the years I spent in London. Unabashedly meat-happy, this British gastropub is raucous and fun, an amazing place to go with friends who don’t mind sharing their food. Go with your game face on; the house made terrines and pates made from game meats like rabbit and wild boar are outstanding. Just don’t miss the light-as-air chicken liver mousse. They offer pared-down happy hour (5pm-7pm) and late night (10pm-midnight) menus featuring some of my favorite quick and satisfying dishes like fish and chips with homemade tartar sauce and smoked salmon terrine with a fried egg and gribiche.

It’s hard to believe that Saison started in 2009 as a once-a-week pop-up in the back of Stable Café in the San Francisco Mission. While they’re now thankfully open Tuesday through Saturday, with just 18 seats and everyone eating about 20 courses, the waiting list for reservations is no joke. I love how Saison is flawlessly dedicated to seasonal ingredients—many of which were harvested in the eatery’s own gardens—and cooking over open fire. The ever-changing menu means you have to be a trusting sort, but in the hands of Chef Joshua Skenes you can bet the house that it’ll be mind-blowingly good. Save up your pennies: Saison isn’t cheap, but the two-Michelin star restaurant is worth every penny.
