Everyday Exotic

Wontons

One of Chef Roger Mooking's first kitchen memories was of his father teaching him how to wrap wontons. Hundreds of them later, Roger admits that although they take some work, the results are worth it! Roger uses wonton wrappers as his Obedient Ingredient, and as a great stand-in for everyday pasta when creating an Asian inspired homemade meat and cheese ravioli meal. Apple cider is simmered to make a glaze to replace a standard cream or tomato sauce. Carrots and fennel make an eye catching and uniquely visual salad, and fried wontons get Roger out of a dessert jam by stuffing them with jam. This fresh ravioli meal is so quick and easy it will leave you "wonton" more!Read More

He makes a ton of dishes using berries, beans and beef. Robert even bets that he can make Elmo's least favorite food - Brussels sprouts - taste wonderful. But when things start to heat up, Robert gets serious and the Muppets get out of the way With time running out, Robert's big menu comes back to haunt him in a big way. There are several dishes aren't done, a birthday cake that isn't finished and now there's one big chef who's not kidding around. With 250 parents and kids waiting for the birthday bash, will Robert be successful, or will this be Dinner Impossible? Read More
