Thai Special with Guest Chef Brenna

This week on Cooking With Kevin, Guest Chef Brenna returns!  CWKSE03EP07-1The fans got what they wanted – and Brenna cooks up quite the delicious entree to celebrate her return to the kitchen on this Thai Special episode.  


She starts with showing Kevin how to make her amazing peanut sauce before putting him to work on some veggie prep. For the noodles, Brenna uses some authentic rice noodles, but gives plenty of substitution suggestions, including pulling out one of her favorite kitchen tools to demonstrate home-made veggie noodles.  CWKSE03EP07-6For his contribution, Chef Kevin creates a Thai-inspired Coconut Rice Pudding.  The meal is amazing, folks – the staff couldn’t stay away from the peanut sauce!  


We walked away from filming with full tummies (yes, we even ate tofu -and it was delicious!) and the confidence to tackle what Brenna demonstrated in our own kitchens. Thai food can be prepared at home, finally!

Meanwhile, Helpful Tips’ Julie gives us the low-down on how American Thai differs from authentic Thai food, and In the Know’s Tim shares some history on mangos.

It’s a fun one!  Enjoy! :)

Salmon, Salmon, Salmon!

Tom starts off with showing Kevin how to filet a fish – it’s easier than it sounds!

Then, while the succulent fish soaks in a special sauce, Kevin makes a rice pilaf to compliment the meal.  Afterward, Tom shows Kevin how to create a special baste for the salmon and apply it before cooking the fish.

And Tom wasn’t done there!  He proceeded to show Chef Kevin how to make a weight-loss success story’s salad!  This meal’s a keeper, folks!

Meanwhile, In the Know’s Tim talks to us about rice pilaf, Get Smart’s Brenna educates us on the difference between wild and farmed salmon, and Helpful Tips’ Julie does what she does best – giving us tips – this time on how to prepare and cook a fool-proof piece of fish.

We’re Playing Catch Up!

Sorry about the delay in updating the website, folks! We had some miscommunications and things didn’t get submitted to me (the web-person, not to be mistaken with spiderman!) so we fell behind online.

But no need to worry! I’ll be posting info about episodes 6 and 7 today!

The CWK Webslinger err web-person. ;)
