YouTube Next Lab’s Hungry Nation challenged me to a Fresh Five so I pulled out the abacus and Google analytics to calculate the Top Five Most Popular Celebrity Chef Recipes on AverageBetty.com! Whose recipe will reign supreme? Watch my Fresh Five to find out.
NUMBER ONE: JET TILA’S DRUNKEN NOODLES
Fresh rice noodles with Thai basil, sweet soy sauce, chilies and onions. And a little magic according to Chef Jet! You might not have a 250,000 BTU Pow Wok at your house, but that doesn’t mean you can’t try Chef Jet’s Drunken Noodles at home. Get the Drunken Noodle recipe here. Watch the video here.
NUMBER TWO: THOMAS KELLER’S FRIED CHICKEN
No question, Thomas Keller is revered for many reasons, but his famous Ad Hoc fried chicken is the stuff of which legends are made. Get the recipe here. Buy the award-winning cookbook here. Watch my interview with Thomas Keller at The American Wine & Food Festival here.
NUMBER THREE: SCOTT LINQUIST’S FISH TACOS
Guess I’m not the only one around here obsessed with fish tacos! Get Chef Scott Linquist’s Grilled Baja Style Mahi Mahi Tacos recipe here and get all of Chef Linquist’s Mod Mex recipes in his cookbook. Watch the video here.
NUMBER FOUR: VICTOR CASANOVA’S SPAGHETTI ALLA CHITARRA
Big showing for the newcomer! Spaghetti Alla Chitarra — Fresh spaghetti with San Marzano Tomatoes, Peperoncino and Basil really is Love in a Pan! Get the recipe here. Special video bonus: Chef Vic explains how to keep fresh pasta from sticking. Watch the video here.
NUMBER FIVE: FABIO VIVIANI’S CHICKEN MARSALA
Although I can’t recommend the pyrotechnics of Chef Fabio for home cooks, his Chicken Marsala is as traditional and Italian as Fabio, himself. Three kinds of mushrooms, Marsala wine, heavy cream and just the right amount of machismo reduce into pure Fabioloso! Get the recipe here. Watch the video here.
