Episode Summary

Steak for One
Chef Michael Smith invites you into his kitchen to show you how to create flavourful, simple meals for your family and friends by, closing your cookbooks; choosing ingredients that fire your imagination; and letting your instincts and your appetite be your guide. After an energizing bike ride, Michael has worked up an appetite for a protein-packed meal. He decides to prepare a dinner for one based on a Japanese belief that there is a fifth taste sense after sweet, sour, salty and bitter. It's called 'umami' and it triggers our need for protein. Michael combines a New York strip loin steak with hearty shiitake mushrooms, a bacon and potato cheese tart, and tops it off with steamed asparagus.moreless
