Ling Cod Recipe

I spent a lot of my career as the Chef of a high end seafood restaurant. We had fish flown in from all over the U.S. daily. We actually wrote our menus every morning based on what landed, and what didn’t. We were cooking by the seasons and the harvests and it was glorious. Learning to properly cook and pair seafood is more difficult than it sounds. Each fish has its own distinct personality and what it plays well with… and what it doesn’t. So learning to not overpower mild flavors but still create bold memorable flavors was a lot of fun. Here is one of my favorite recipes.

Sous Vide Pork Belly

The sous vide method yields the most delicious pork belly. I love this recipe and its versatility and prefer it to traditional cooking methods which often use high temperatures vs the low-temperature long-time slow cook. If this is your first recipe using sous vide, you picked the right place to start!

Blended Burger Project: Meatloaf

Inspired by the idea of the blended burger project by The Mushroom Council. I created this mixture and made it into a meatloaf. This recipe can easily be adjusted to turn it into meatballs or even burger patties. Have fun experimenting with it and enjoy!
