Full Episode Guide
  • Brunch is Alex's favorite meal of the week and a great time to have fun with food in the kitchen. Alex starts with some simple popovers, topping them with creamy homemade ricotta. Next, a goopy fried egg paired with some old school ground pork patties. Shaped like mini hamburgers, these spicy pork patties are mixed with chili flakes and fennel seeds, then fried in a skillet. For a refreshing brunch drink, she mixes a grapefruit and vodka cocktail.

  • Alex makes some of her greatest hits of Indian Dishes. Taken from her childhood memories of her Mother cooking with Indian spices, Alex adds her own authentic style to each dish. Braised chicken thighs are slathered in a tomato sauce and infused with a blast of spices. For a side, Alex turns an innocent head cabbage into an unforgettable side of Indian mischief. The appetizer is cauliflower dusted with smoked paprika, coated in beer batter, and fried into little fritter nuggets. Plus, she bakes some tangy Indian bread, naan, which acts like an extra utensil for all of these dishes.
