Monkey See, Monkey Eat

Let Ruth Gresser (above) of Pizzeria Paradiso show you how to make pizza. Acadiana's Chris Clime walks you through a recipe for Louisiana barbecue shrimp, and Hook's Barton Seaver will give you a lesson in pan-searing striped bass.

The videos are all part of MonkeySee, a new web site chock full of how-to videos. A number of DC chefs are featured in the Food and Drink section of the site.

To point out a few more videos of note, Mike Isabella from Zaytinya demonstrates spanakopita, and a no-bake cheesecake is offered up by David Guas, who now runs DamGoodSweet Consulting and was formerly the executive pastry chef for DC Coast, TenPenh, Ceiba and Acadiana. A great recipe for roast chicken comes from Shannon Overmiller of The Majestic.

Check it out. You may learn a thing or two.
