Sam Champion couldn’t believe how simple this recipe was and said he was going to try it at home later. But I have to admit, even after seeing Richard Blais cook this recipe, I was skeptical of it, especially after seeing Sam Champion’s face, who took a bite but didn’t say whether he liked it or not.
