Chef Alex knows what he's talking about. Lots of interesting technique tips while demonstrating a dish like Steak Au Poivre. Like how to warm the peppercorns before grinding to have them release their flavor and oils. Also, what kind of pan to use to sear a filet and then how to baste it with an herb infused butter. The final results were so tasty, too! The crispy outside of the deep fried smashed potatoes was a real treat as was the Bearnaise sauce. His experience in Mexican and South American flavors really came through in his other dishes as well.
