Last week we taste tested Sam the Cooking Guy’s potato chip mashed potatoes hack – it wasn’t too bad! (see the results here). Afterward, we decided that was had to talk to the master himself.
We’re so glad that we did. Sam is a fascinating person. He has a YouTube cooking channel with over 3 million subscribers, but has never had any formal culinary training. That’s part of his charm. His recipes and techniques are approachable making them easy for everyone to try. That and the excessive amount of cursing he lets slide during his videos.
Speaking of recipes, if you didn’t already know, Sam’s repertoire goes much deeper than trendy cooking hacks. During the conversation he shared his tips for making delicious dishes like smoked cream cheese (the base for his buffalo chicken dip), truffle mac & cheese in and instant pot and the perfect cheesesteak.
