Why do you cook? Is it for reasons pertaining to health or cost? Or, is it for the story? The Chew Crew is struck by Michael’s connection to Chicken Paprikash and his memories of eating it as a child. When he prepares the dish on today’s show, Michael is transported back to his childhood all by the power of his story. Similarly, Mario shares a meaningful story about his relationship with Marcella Hazan as he prepares her 3 ingredient tomato sauce. Both of their stories not only have an effect on Michael and Mario, but also on the rest of the co-hosts as they listen, learn, and taste these personal memories.
