The Great American Recipe is officially onto its third episode of the second season and for this week’s challenges we are talking comfort food and loved ones. Not only do our cooks have to make a comfort food dish, but they will also have to create a dish inspired by a loved one.
We absolutely love these challenges and we love them even more on The Great American Recipe. When it comes to seeing competition cooks taking inspiration from comfort food and loved ones, we usually find ourselves inspired as well. Typically, we want to make these dishes for ourselves. And thanks to The Great American Recipe, many of these comfort food dishes seem much more in line with things we might already be making at home.
The joy of this series is that it really is every day home cooks showing their love of food with the world. And we love that so much.
A look at the magic of comfort food cooking in episode 3 of The Great American Recipe
In the clip for this week’s episode shared by PBS, we get to see Maria making a dish that really is an interesting comfort food. For her dish, she is making shrimp and grits. And she talks about how it really is, in many ways, inspired by her home and heritage.
On the other hand, we have Brad making a Brik Pastry, which is a North African pastry. Brad talks about how this is a recipe that is a comfort to his father and has been passed down in the family. It is another interesting look at our cooks and a great way to get to know more about what inspires them and their cooking.
