The subject was cooking healthy, cheap and easy for college, but then it became cheap, healthy, easy for anyone.
Kelsie is a theater arts major in Riverside so I thought she would be game. Her singing here. I really want to help people get over there fear of the kitchen. She is already ahead of me in college, She has pretty hair. I went through a mullet phase.
Sal Marino, a great chef and friend helped me figure out how to do a version of his AMAZING pea soup.
No pea soup is better than his. If you come to LA go to Il Grano and have it. My version is made with frozen peas and is very good, if you’ve never had his you would think it ‘s the best, so maybe don’t have his, because then mine is for sure 2nd best.
Before we tape the show I spend a lot of time testing recipes. I have an idea in my head and sometimes it takes several tries to get it right, or I have to scrap it and do something else. Sometimes it’s good right away. An hour with Sal and this pea soup was perfect.
Next week I riff off the foods of Bombo for Steam Power. If I seem low energy my as yet undiagnosed C – diff was kicking my ass .. literally. But, I always have the sweetest people around me helping through!
More Green Tea please, thanks
