Our Cooking Videos.

We are busily making cooking videos that serve as a resource and companion to the book! They will cover recipes found in Shop Like A Chef.

Here is a little teaser/into to Shop Like A Chef Bites!


Look forward to seeing videos of making samosas, cooking roux, and crimping dumplings! I am so excited to share these techniques with everyone, and to keep you all cookin’!
