The pressure is always on to create meals that are quick and exciting. This week’s guest, Chef Tom Colicchio, has judged more than 14 seasons of the hit television show, Top Chef.
He says that the key to a delicious sandwich is to always start with delicious ingredients.
“Fresh ingredients, right now middle of the summer it’s great to get out to farmer’s markets, and it doesn’t need to be fancy it doesn’t need to be complicated, just really simple ingredients that are fresh,” Colicchio explained.
For example, you can turn an average grilled cheese into a hearty meal by using some sharp cheddar cheese, adding a walnut spread, plus a whole grain cranberry relish. There are plenty of delicious recipes that can be made by simply combining fresh, healthy ingredients.
