"From Miss to Mrs." was one episode of Turn Up the Heat with G. Garvin that should not have been missed. The down to earth, talented, chef extraordinaire G. Garvin definitely turned up the heat with his tantalizing, mouth-watering, delicious recipes. This episode was dedicated to creating a delicious romantic meal that will get your man on his knees or your significant other to crown you forever the “queen” for making his heart and stomach sing.
Turn Up the Heat really has a unique twist to the whole “cooking show” genre. G.Garvin actually invites well-known celebrity guests into his kitchen to share his delights and he really gets in to demonstrating and creating each recipe to perfection that makes the show enjoyable to watch. Malinda Williams (Soul Food) and her sister Lisa were his guests for "From Miss To Mrs."
G started us off with “Cocktail Champagne,” made with sparkling pink lemonade, and G. Garvin’s own “Pineapple Infusion Martini.” The featured recipes were “Surf & Turf” and “Sweet Basil Gnocchi with Chardonnay Cream Sauce” and for the sweet dessert delight — “Double Your Pleasure Chocolate Mousse.” My favorites are the “Sweet Basil Gnocchi with Chardonnay Cream Sauce” and the “Double Your Pleasure Chocolate Mousse.” The “Sweet Basil Gnocchi” sounds difficult but actually the recipe is pretty straightforward. The “Gnocchi” is made with baked potatoes seasoned with basil among other added ingredients. The chardonnay cream sauce is what makes this recipe stand out and tempt your taste buds. The cream sauce main ingredients are shrimp, chicken; peas, and chardonnay that create a creamy delectable mixture that will make you want to dig in before it’s done. The “Double Your Pleasure Chocolate Mousse” is a chocolate lover's delight. This recipe calls for double the chocolate, whipped cream, and caramelized walnuts. Oh my! Forget the main dishes, I am going straight for dessert.
G. Garvin is a master of his craft, and it shows. He definitely takes pride in his work and is not afraid to demonstrate how to turn up the heat in your own kitchen. Until next time, Happy Cooking!
