In our segment "In the Kitchen" we challenge cooks of all walks of life to create a dish - using the ingredients we give them. We unveil which ingredients they use at the top of the show - and they have to create a dish by the time we get to their segment.

Today's "In the Kitchen" contestant is the Executive Chef and V.P. of Culinary Operations for Mariano's - Chef Ryan LaRoche! So we thought he'd be great for our challenge!

We set out Alessi products that must be used, and some kitchen staples - then the chef needs to work their magic!

Our Friends at Alessi sent Chef Ryan home with a gift basket of goodies. Visit their website for all the Alessi products.
