As for his on-camera vegetable lasagna challenge where Das “brutalized the spinach,” according to Food Network Star mentor Giada De Laurentiis, Das has learned not to grope the food in the future.
“I wanted to control the camera, so I was trying to make a joke out of the spinach while squeezing out the water,” he says. “I probably did squeeze it a little too long because time got away from me a little bit and was trying to stretch. “
One thing Das doesn’t joke about. The dish every man should learn to make to impress the ladies.
“You definitely want to perfect the chocolate-covered strawberry,” he declares. “Make a double boiler and melt the chocolate and dip the strawberries. Then place the strawberries on wax paper to let them cool. You don’t want to place it on a paper towel because the wax paper helps it not to stick.”
And if your man really wants to get fancy, Das says, “You can drizzle white chocolate on top of that to make two different colors. It’s something simple every man should know how to make.” We couldn’t agree more.
