This episode is all about Cecilia as a mentor and passing on her kitchen wisdom. "Cecilia is a perfect mentor because she gives perfect advice," says legendary chef Jeremiah Tower. She gave Julia Child cooking lessons and was Alice Water's mentor in the years leading up to Chez Panisse. Well into her 90's, Cecilia is still mentoring a new generation of San Francisco's chefs. Corey Lee, a Korean American comes to her for professional advice and for personal as well. Tyler Florence asks Cecilia how to manage fame. And Belinda Leong, chef/co-owner and creator of b.patisserie is like a daughter to Cecilia and seeks out her counsel daily. In this episode, first they recreate a Mandarin classic dessert, glaceed bananas. Then Belinda does a b.patisserie signature favorite, her now famous chocolate banana almond croissant.
