In this episode, we get the ball rolling with an update on the pressure cooked ribs experiment, where I went wrong, and how I scrambled to fix the issue to still get a delicious dinner on the table.

Then I give you an epic breakdown of how to create the best beef stroganoff ever, without using a recipe, by shooting the entire dish through the F-STEP lens. I walk you through the process I use when first trying to understand the basic building blocks of a recipe, and then how I reconstruct it using flavor structure, technique, and execution to make it my own!

Then we talk about the culinary rules you should and shouldn't break, and I have an epic meltdown over the majesty that is the Zojirushi Rice Cooker!
