Rumble Let me first start by saying how much I’ve enjoyed creating these videos for you guys and this Lemon Herb Flattened Chicken with Root Vegetable Panzanella Salad may be one of my favorites. I’ve only done a few of these long-form videos, i.e. 10 minutes +, but still, I like being able to share in more detail what and why I’m doing it instead of cramming so much cooking information into a 1-minute video. No offense but I don’t carry any more about those and I’m not going to cook recipes that can be prepared in 20 minutes, that’s not my style and not what has gotten me to this point. I have a culinary degree and 15 years of restaurant experience so I feel it’s my duty to share my story and cooking knowledge with you all and I hope in some way it inspires you to cook and enjoy every day in the kitchen.
