We've partnered with Simmer, a new app that allows you to generate step-by-step recipe videos that you can create, watch, and share from your very own kitchen. In the coming weeks and months, we'll continue sharing instructional videos that will teach you how to create tantalizing dishes from JBF Award winners, Beard House chefs, and even Beard himself, all prepared in James Beard's historic New York City kitchen.

Growing up in Oregon, James Beard was raised on the seasonal bounty of the Pacific ocean, so it’s no surprise that cioppino was one of his favorite ways to highlight seafood. The dish originates in San Francisco, where Italian immigrants infused the local daily catch with the flavors and philosophy of their native cuisine. The result is a light tomato-based stew, versatile enough to be made all year long. Watch the video below, as JBF director of house programming Izabela Wojcik shows you how to prepare this comforting main. To make this recipe at home, order it from Chef'd and they'll ship you a box with all the ingredients you'll need!
