Another chapter in our “Get A Life” series presented homemade ‘WallyCam’ style.
Food Network judge and author, Simon Majumdar is traveling and eating his way across America for his new book, “Fed, White and Blue.” Just like the book, he’s invited Americans to suggest locations to visit and if you’re lucky, he’ll even come prepare a meal for you. I was fortunate enough to host Simon and his lovely wife Sybil during his stop here in the Atlanta area (Buford, GA) and what transpired was a truly fun evening of great food and conversation. It was obvious that not only does Simon share my love of cooking, but he shares in the joy of preparing good food for others and that community experience that is created by enjoying food together.
Simon prepared grilled lamb chops, life saving daal, a chicken korma and a vegetarian cauliflower korma and topped it all off with a berry crumble. I chipped in by including something from my old show, and Simon’s friend, Alton Brown’s shrimp cocktail which I prepared as a hot grilled shrimp dish. Beyond the cooking you’ll find out the history of Gin and Tonic, Simon’s favorite Doctor Who actors and a few really bad jokes along the way.
So enjoy Simon’s cooking, his humor and his love of life. You’ll find many recipes on simonmajumdar.com and you can also see if the #FedWhiteAndBlue tour is headed to your area. If you don’t see a stop, reach out to Simon and Sybil. You never know, they just may show up your town. This video is decidedly low-key and more “WallyCam” style than my broadcast work. But this evening was all about enjoying the evening with Simon and Sybil and less about “being professional. Enjoy!
