This episode is about trying new recipes and techniques and being unafraid to make them your own. Michael Davenport notes that many confident cooks don’t use exact measurements - they use a pinch, a handful, or season to taste. As you gain confidence in the kitchen, you’re building a new muscle that helps you recognize when the pan is hot enough or the pie is cooked through. He also encourages home cooks not to be intimidated by the food they’re served in restaurants. Michael provides a recipe for carpet bag steak that he promises will dazzle friends and family. And while recreating a dish at home may raise questions about its authenticity, Michael is a proponent of changing recipes to your liking. He says: “Call it anything as long as it’s good - call it delicious.”
