What's one recipe that's been on your bucket list for a while? Why?
It's a Korean noodle dish. Buckwheat noodles, white kimchi broth, cucumber, carrots, sesame seeds, and gochujang. It's eaten ice-cold. We don't even remember what it is called, but we saw it on Kimchi Chronicles and thought we have to find some way to make it. It seems like such a great balance of flavors. Salty, sweet, sour, and spicy. We love combinations of different flavors.

Describe your most spectacular kitchen disaster?
We would both agree it was trying to roll a stuffed porchetta that wasn't butterflied properly, so it made for a very awkwardly shaped porchetta. Trying to roll it and tie it was painful. It tasted great, but looked horrible!

Dominique: Anything that reminds me of my childhood.

Apron or no apron?
No apron!

What ingredient (or cooking tip/trick/recipe) have you been excited about lately?
Adding finely chopped crimini mushrooms to ground meat for burgers. The mushrooms add flavor, but more importantly keep the burgers super juicy and tender!
