What does Okra taste like?

I watched your show today and you were cooking okra.  I have never tasted it and was wondering what it tastes like. Is it sweet like a fruit or more like  a vegetable or is it spicy like a pepper?   Thanks for watching! Okra is a vegetable that has its own unique flavor.  The texture can be somewhat silky while others describe that texture as slimy. Those of us from the South enjoy okra. It is hard to describe the flavor in words as you can imagine. I suggest you give it a try and let me know if you can describe the taste to me! Cooking suggestion: Slice 1/2 lb. okra and cook it with 1 diced onion, 1 tomato, 1 teaspoon sugar, 2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil and  1/4 cup of water. Simmer for 25-30 minutes. Curtis

Interested in becoming a chef

No wheres Ville) I have been interested in becoming a chef myself since I was 5 or 6 years old. And I try my hardest to watch your show regularly.

WOW thanks for all the great inspiration. Keep up the GREAT work and giving us great recipes to use. And one Read More…
