Ever wonder how an Iron Chef comes up with such innovative dishes? Master innovator Matthew Robinson gives us a look into the creation process, both in and outside of the kitchen.
With 17 years experience in the food industry as a scientist, product developer, and spokesperson he is known for translating complex topics into easy, usable information for consumers. He does just that in his book, Knickerbocker Glory, which is both a guide to creating masterpiece desserts and a resource for becoming more inventive in the culinary and real world.
Using a basic recipe—a classic layered ice cream dessert—and encouraging some out-of-the-box thinking, he shows readers how innovation can be used to achieve extraordinary results, from “wow” moments on the plate to reinvention in the office.
