Hot, Lukewarm or Freezer-Burned, With Ivan Szilak

Each week we ask a pro what’s hot, lukewarm and freezer-burned in the food world. This week’s guest: Ivan Szilak, executive chef of Collections Cafe at Chihuly Garden and Glass.

Hot: Israeli couscous, bloody marys, and Manhattans.

Lukewarm: Organic. Seems to be an overused term. Unless you know the farmer you’re getting products from, it’s hard to see the truth in it.

Freezer-burned: I hear some people saying pork belly is out, but in my opinion, pork is never out! For me, it’s ranch dressing and any boxed food items. We can do so much better!
