Avec Eric

Eric Ripert has a blog.

In the unlikely case that you don't know who he is, Eric Ripert is the executive chef at one NYC's finest restaurants, Le Bernardin.

His blog, Avec Eric, showcases videos and recipes for simple yet beautiful dishes that can be prepared in minutes and cooked in a toaster oven. Avec Eric is not what I expected from a 3 Michelin star chef, considered to be one of the best in the culinary world. And that's what I love about it.

Special hardware or cooking techniques aren't needed to execute the relatively simple recipes, making them very accessible to home cooks. Their level of sophistication, however, will have your guests calling you a culinary rockstar after your next party.

My understanding is that Eric Ripert will have his own cooking show in the not to distant future. If it keep's the same spirit as his blog, he could very well be the new celebrity chef on the block.
