  1. This was a fun one and a bit unexpected considering James loved it two weeks ago when I shot the print recipe for our website. The written recipe is always linked in the description (it's the little "arrow" on mobile and a "show more" on desktop). In the description, you will also find my shop and other links with cookware/ingredients and all the other things you guys frequently ask about. Thanks as always for liking my videos!

  2. You gave James great power, which he should now learn comes with great responsibility! Maybe spell out some of the more common or standard measures we use to judge food, and some thoughts on being objective – what sorts of things to put aside when we approach judging others' work (especially that of friends and family). Soup looks fantastic <3

  3. keep giving him more soup . then you will get a 9 and a 10 when you return to pasta recipes :-):-) but it really happens to me also, i have the feeling when i cook for the first time something that is the perfect taste. i cook it again and it feels different. i think because he associates all the next experiences based on his first soup and he doesnt want to experiment. is like the soups our grandmothers cooked to us , we want that first experience. i remember my grandmother cooked without salt as my grandfather had some problem with the heart and i was raised by her for quite a few years and even today when i cook i dont like to put salt into food also :-):-)

  4. If I wasn't already subbed, you'd have had me at chicken thigh supremacy. In any case, I feel like I know what James is talking about after watching this video. Cooking the chicken for stock takes most of the flavour out, makes it fibrous and dry. I think making a stock with a roasted chicken carcass, then baking the thighs until they're just done, setting them to the side (collect drippings for the stock), shredding the meat when it's mostly cool (and saving the skins to fry down into a crunchy topping), and adding it at the very end will give you juicy chicken bites without changing the flavour. Of course, I probably added another 30-45 minutes with these steps, but if you want to show your boy a little humility, give it a try

  5. This is how I like to make my soup too! I like adding some thyme and/or oregano, and sometimes if I want a thicker soup, some heavy cream for a really great creamy texture. Orzo is definitely better than classic egg noodles imo, and can mix it up with some wild rice when doing the creamy version too!

  6. Hey man :), for some reason I dont really subscribe to channles. But right when I found you, I was hooked. I subscribed shortly after and I watch your videos over and over because I just like the vibe. Everything is great, your doing an incredible job with your videos, the vibe, your voice, the music, your son, the way you explain things and give usefull tips here and there and of course the recipes, I just love it. Everything I make myself tastes just sooooooooooooo AMAZING. Keep it up, lots of love to you <3.

  7. I love watching you guys! A real family, real communication, and real food. Do not change a thing. Continue the family participation. Your instructions and recipes are meals I can truly make. Being Italian watching you and your family brings warm memories. Keep up the great work!

  8. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. I love your channel! I love how you get the family involved in the kitchen. I think that so important! I love your wooden cooking utensils. I think you said you made them! You could sell those! I just can’t find good wooden cooking utensils! Keep up the good work!
