Melissa takes her position at the stove, ready to learn a few chef secrets. The first meal they make is Rigatoni with Spicy Italian Salami. "You're talking about a gourmet plate of food at a portion of the price," Curtis says.
After the pasta, Curtis teaches his student how to make:
- Tomato Salad with Sesame Crusted Chicken and Mozzarella
- Chicken Fried Rice
- Grilled Flank Steak with Chipotle Chili Paprika Rub
- Chipotle Shrimp Tacos
"I've learned that there are a million things I'm capable of making, and everything's been so easy," Melissa says. "To know that my family's going to be able to sit down and eat together means the world."
