We've also launched an off-shoot of the series featuring local chefs cooking up simple dishes in their home or restaurant kitchens.

On Friday, June 5 at 1 p.m. we filmed our live with Chef Gregory Leon of Amilinda, 315 E. Wisconsin Ave., who demonstrated how to make Spanish chorizo and piquillo pepper custard tarts. He also offered up numerous tips for making the tart crust, eliminating bubbles in the custard and more.

In case you missed the episode, you can watch it now.
