Chef's 'Sessions' to air on MPT

Charlie Trotter (above), owner-operator of the top-rated Chicago restaurant that bears his name, is throwing his toque into the TV cooking-show ring.

Starting Sunday at 3 p.m., the master chef will introduce a 13-part series, called "The Kitchen Sessions," on Maryland Public Television. With jazz playing in the background, the half-hour weekly show features Trotter preparing such dishes as poached beef tenderloin with gnocchi and roasted root vegetables, pumpkin soup with pheasant breast and fried ginger, and chocolate-ginger truffle tart with pear-caramel sauce.
