A day in the life of Michael Mina is not all speedy grilled cheese and Ron Siegel. Today a press release comes out announcing his latest venture: Cook Taste Eat, a new free daily email and website he's founded with Tanya Melillo. Every day, subscribers get a new culinary video lesson taught by Mina and singer/songwriter/apple farm lover Michelle Branch. Mina plans to invite other big names like Charles Phan, Mourad Lahlou and Michael Chiarello in on the video action, so eventually it won't be all Mina all the time.
Branch will help tee up all the lesson with the kinds of questions that non-chefs want to ask about new techniques. Further pooling on the founders' connections, each week's worth of videos will build towards a full meal along with wine and dessert pairings suggested by notable sommeliers and other big-name culinary types. Check out the first video, Mina's lesson on how to make sesame-crusted Ahi, and subscribe today via the website.
