Pretty much everyone who cooks aspires to have a clutch of recipes they can make their own. The one dish that you keep in your back pocket. The one you send to friends, the one you entirely depend on and know it’s going to work every single time. The One Recipe podcast is about building that library, one recipe at a time. Host Jesse Sparks, Senior Editor at Eater talks to chefs and gifted cooks from all over the world about their One and the story behind it. From the team that brought you The Splendid Table at APM Studios. Follow The One Recipe wherever you get podcasts.
