Nothing beats devouring fresh, juicy, and sweet corn on the cob in the summer. This excellent picnic addition sets the perfect base for other exciting foods on the menu. That's why we can't dare imagine a cookout without eating the pearl-like kernels straight from the cob. And whether you like boiled corn or grilled corn on the cob recipes, one thing we can all agree on is how summer can feel incomplete without this irresistible veggie. But let's admit it: this summer treat is not that fun when it comes to cutting corn off the cob (we've all been there).
Geoffrey Zakarian is considered by many to be one of the leading figures in the culinary world, and one glance at his résumé offers more than a few hints as to why. After graduating from the Culinary Institute of America in 1982, the chef spent nearly 20 years working his way up the ranks in various kitchens, including New York's legendary 21 Club, where he became the executive chef in 1987. By 2001, Zakarian was opening the doors to his first restaurant, TOWN, which he followed up with his Michelin star-winning second eatery, Country, in 2005.
Whipping up the protein-packed breakfast staple may seem simple, yet there are quite a few mistakes everyone makes when making omelets. Some of these have to do with your technique, such as getting your pan way too hot and overcooking the bottom of your omelet or using a pan that's too large, as per Bon Appetit. Other potential missteps involve the ingredients you choose to incorporate, like using milk or cream or adding way too much of the mix-ins — more is not necessarily better.
Given the wild ingredients that "Chopped" contestants have to incorporate, it may seem like the judges wouldn't notice if a chef went a bit lighter with salt and other seasonings. However, the reason salt is such a critical addition to any dish is the role it serves. As Fine Cooking explains, salt is essentially a flavor enhancer and will amplify all the other flavors you've cultivated in your dish. It can also balance out issues with particular ingredients, taming the flavor notes in a dish that may be erring on the side of overly bitter or sweet. And, if you use kosher salt like "Chopped" judge Geoffrey Zakarian recommends, it often impacts the texture of your dish as well, adding a bit of crunch, per The Spruce Eats.

Spring is just around the corner, which means home cooks can finally take advantage of all the vegetables that come with this season. One of the best ways to do so comes in the form of spring pasta. According to Wise-Geek, chefs have used asparagus, spinach, zucchini, squash, and even avocado to make dishes like pasta primavera and a variety of other spins on this seasonal staple. Chefs are always coming up with new variations on spring pasta — chef and restaurateur Geoffrey Zakarian recently took to social media to share his particular take on the dish.
It is a huge achievement when a television show hits the 400 episode mark. So naturally, when "The Kitchen" achieved this milestone it inspired Geoffrey Zakarian to celebrate in an oh-so-appropriate way — with a delicious, whimsically decorated cake. After all, it's a big deal for the show to have lasted since it began in 2014.
