U Cook! with Chef Bob Waggoner

Beef Carpaccio
No, I can't cook.  I can't even use the stove without having the fire alarm activated (usually).  But, for several moments, I stepped into a beautiful dream.  I was honored to be a guest cook on U Cook! with Chef Bob last week, and realized how easy and fun cooking can be.  He made it seem so simple, using the freshest ingredients from the farmer's market, and instructing the audience, and me, about food.  The entree me...was beef carpaccio, drizzled with a lemony vinaigrette, topped with slices of black olive, pink Himalayan salt, and roasted hazelnuts.  Not sure if I've ever made anything so beautiful in my life, and the savory, so right.  Cooking beside an award winning chef (and he has so many, I can't list them) can be at first daunting, but then freeing, escaping to a place where I'm the chef.  U Cook! with Chef Bob is available to Public Television affiliates across the nation, as well as world wide, as it's also produced and recorded in French.  Thank you, Chef Waggoner, for the privilege to learn from you.
