A Simply Genius Tomato Sauce in 5-ish Minutes
With the release of the Simply Genius cookbook right around the corner, this week we wanted to share a particularly simple and genius recipe from the book. And because every great chef needs a partner, in this episode Kristen is joined by a very special sous-chef, her daughter Mari, as they cook their way through Heidi Swanson's 5-minute tomato sauce (in maybe a few more than 5 minutes).
In French, "jolie laide" means "pretty and ugly"; it's a way to describe something that is unconventionally beautiful. This homage to jolie laide foods will explore the idea that deliciousness can come where you least expect it, from misshapen fish meatballs to organ meat that only a zombie could love. Some consumers may fall for the illusion of perfection, but companies such as UglyRipe and Imperfect Produce have made a point of promoting flavor over façade. (Bruised tomatoes may not be the most slightly, but they make a great sauce!) We'll examine the notion of perfection of taste vs. perfection of image

Not a review, just a comment on the cookbook episode. I wish the recipes and cookbooks did a better job of meal planning. Example, if you got a burrito recipe and there are references to a rice dish is on page 84 and another’s complementary dish on page 27 that would be awesome.
