This Episode is a cross-over episode of our soon-to-be-released Youtube series "Between Two Chitarras" and The Northwest Method Express. In this episode, Eric, Tarek, and Jonathan discuss the challenges that cooks face every day. It's a bit of a chicken and egg thing. Do you need great technique BEFORE you try to be creative? Or do you need creativity to motivate you to learn something new? (Hint: it's a little of both).  Apologies: Because this was our first time filming AND our first time crossing over episodes, there are some rough patches in spots. As well, the Intro and Outro do not necessarily match what you might see on Youtube. Live and learn!
