The Mind of a Chef
Genre: Cultural
From ramen to rotting bananas, from Copenhagen to Kentucky, from pork buns to golf clubs IN THE MIND OF A CHEF is a rethinking of a "travel/cooking show" -- it feeds the gut and the mind. It is a series that dares to make connections between food and nature, science, music, art, sports, history, and pretty much anything else a renowned chef can stir up. It is an experience that unlocks the potential of food, travel and the mind.

Below is a list of broadcasts scheduled to air in the next 60 days on any of our three channels.

Episode #302
American
American cuisine has come to be known as much more than just burgers and hot dogs. Ed and Pok Pok's Andy Ricker head to Sunset Park - Brooklyn's Chinatown - for some exotic ingredients, then head to the kitchen to make jop chai, a Thai stew. Ed plays with some local by-catch in that most American of cities, Houston, Texas, with chefs Chris Shepherd and Paul Qui, making a crispy fish fresh from the gulf and Filipino kinilaw. A sweat-inducing crawfish dinner in a Vietnamese joint exemplifies how Creole, Cajun, Mexican, and Asian flavors blend with the gulf's bounty, effectively creating an entirely new American cuisine.

Episode #303
Argentina
Fire is the most elemental part of a kitchen - without it, food would simply be eaten, never "cooked." And yet in the post-Nouvelle-Cuisine age, food and fire have become distant from one another. Ed travels to Argentina to visit Francis Mallmann, the country's most esteemed chef and the godfather of open-flame cooking, on his private island nestled in the foothills of the Andes. While on La Isla for three days, Francis and Ed create a feast that reunites the simplest - and arguably the best - ingredients and cooking techniques. Armed with fire, smoke, meat and salt, Ed relishes this once-in-a-lifetime experience.

Episode #304
Louisville
Ed got his start in NYC, but now calls Louisville home and home is where the heart is. He discusses how living and working in Louisville have inspired, influenced and changed him over the past decade - Louisville is where he gently put aside his classic French technique and decided to do something all his own. Working with chef Kevin Ashworth from Ed's restaurant Milkwood, the chefs experiment with farmers market finds, allowing a view into how a new dish is created. Ed then delves into Louisville's fried chicken scene and cooks up his own version with North Carolina chef Ashley Christensen. Finally, honoring the woman who kept him in Louisville in the first place, Ed uses the city's German heritage as inspiration to cook hasenpfeffer for his wife, Dianne.

Latitude
South Korea and kentucky both lay along the same latitudinal line. The 38th parallel also spans Southern Spain and Italy, San Francisco, and generous portions of the American South. A similar terroir translates into some interesting crossing of cultures for chefs like Ed, as well as Stuart Brioza - who cooks Mediterranean dim sum - and Andrew Ticer and Michael Hudman from Tennessee's Hog & Hominy - who cook Memphis favorites imbued with Calabrian family traditions. A renowned geologist who has a hand in viticulture explains it plainly, and food history becomes a bit less mysterious.

The more things change ... the more they continue to change. So much of cooking, writing, art and music is based on what came before. First there was meat. Then there was fire. Then came sous-vide.

He tries his hand at cooking alternative meats (like alligator); enjoys a recipe that has stood the test of time, Maw Maw's Ravioli from Hog & Hominy's Andrew Ticer and Michael Hudman; and creates a quickly disappearing dim sum dish with Stuart Brioza, as he looks toward the future of the food chain.

Origin
Ed returns to his roots in East Brooklyn, where as a Korean kid in New York, he was surrounded by an eclectic mix of cultures and cuisines that inspired how he cooks today. Spending time with other chefs who have roots in one cuisine but have veered away from their assumed culinary paths, Ed explores the meaning of origin in the city where his life and career began. Ed and Ivan Orkin stop by one of the city's oldest "appetizing" stores and head back to the kitchen to cook their versions of American cuisine (Japanese-Jewish and Korean-Southern). Alex Stupak shows why a white kid from Boston should be cooking Mexican, and Ed pays a visit to his mom in New Jersey for a lesson on how to cook Korean comfort food.
