Sam Talbot Cooks for Me: Shirataki Noodles with Cashews and Chiles

A couple of months back, I submitted a post for consideration in chef Sam Talbot’s blogger contest. In my entry, I gushed about my love for his cookbook, The Sweet Life, which is full of delicious low-glycemic recipes. So imagine the smile on my face a few weeks back when I found out that I was selected as the contest’s grand prize winner! After doing a victory lap around my little apartment, I waited patiently for my prize – a signed cookbook and personalized cooking demo from Sam (I think it’s safe to assume we’re on a first name basis now).

I received the demo video last week and was excited to see that in it Sam prepares his shirataki noodles with cashews and chiles. (He and I are clearly on the same wavelength – I’ve been eyeing that recipe for weeks.) The video is so much fun! Sam walks through the recipe step-by-step in his tiny purple New York kitchen. His adorable dog even makes an appearance.

I’m planning to make this dish in the next few days (I already have the shirataki noodles in my fridge), and will write about how in turns out. In the meantime, I hope you enjoy the video as much as I do!
