Description

On todays episode of THE FOOD SEEN, we create the criteria for the perfect chocolate chip cookie with Mindy Segal. Her dessert bar in Chicago, Hot Chocolate, has long relied on modern twists to traditional classics, much like the music she listened to when younger. Her father was a jazz musician, and they made frequent trips to Ricks American Cafe to listen to the likes of Tito Puente and Mongo Santamaria, which inevitably lead her to a life of improvisation. Its not to say she doesnt have strong core technique, as seen in Cookie Love, her first cookbook, chock-full of drop cookies, bars, sandwich cookies, shortbreads, thumbprints, spritz, and those twice baked, but its the Peanut Butter Peanut Brittle Cookies, Fleur de Sel Shortbread, Malted Milk Spritz, Peaches and Cream Biscotti, Brownie Krinkles, Banilla Nillas, and motorcycle riding Best Friend Cookies, that best showcase Mindys riffs. Theres also a dark side, certainly of chocolate, but also of heavy metal, through Mindys ode to both the Oreo and Black Sabbath. The bridge: Starlite Mints. So sweeten up, bring your #CookieLove and bake with us! This program was brought to you by Whole Foods Market. There are a lot of great chefs up there [In Chicago] but none of us know how to run a business. [11:00] What separates men from boys...is the nuances of understanding balance.
