Sure. Foie gras and truffles are really fun, but that's just not how we cook every day. This week Tony and Chef Cindy shift focus toward cooking in the context of our daily grind with preparations for people who are short on time and those who have lots of mouths to feed. We explore everything from essential stocks and plenty of pasta to getting three meals from a single chicken.

Tony Foreman is the founder and co-owner of Baltimore's premier restaurant company, Foreman Wolf, comprised of six restaurants and two retail wine stores. The combined staff is over 350 employees and has been a major driving force in putting Baltimore on the map in the world of fine wines and dining.
Cindy Wolf is the executive chef at Charleston and was a 2006, 2008, and 2014 James Beard Award finalist for Best Chef, Mid-Atlantic. Chef Wolf's cuisine is backed by French fundamentals and grounded in preparations that emphasize the natural flavors of the very finest products.
