Full Episode Guide
  • Alex loves cooking for her friends. She makes one of her favorite dishes from the restaurant - a pan-fried pesto pizza with mozzarella and parmesan. Alex serves the pizza with a colorful bibb radish salad topped with bacon dressing. For appetizers, Alex serves beer battered shrimp wrapped in basil and topped with just the right hint of salt. She'll toast with her friends over a chilled apple cider drink with sparkling Cava wine.

  • Alex takes the everyday meal and makes it special. Alex shows us how easy it is to blacken salmon. And she serves it with the most perfectly seasoned basmati rice and baked squash topped with browned butter. To finish up, a delicious citrus pomegranate dessert topped with a spectacular baked meringe.

  • For a dish that really screams spring, Alex plans a succulent lamb stew with earthy and fresh parsnips - the first vegetables of the spring season. Alex serves it with a bright and crisp pea salad drizzled with a tangy vinaigrette. Plus, whole cherries sautéed in grappa and dusted with cinnamon.
