Daniel Patterson’s Go-To Summer Soup

This episode of My Go-To Dish features Daniel Patterson, chef-owner of Coi in San Francisco and Plum in Oakland. The best part of this video: getting to see Daniel in his home kitchen environment. He faces the same issues as the rest of us—old appliances, kids getting in the way, etc. To make his go-to soup your own, see the recipe.

In My Go-To Dish, meticulously trained chefs, hardworking food-industry folks, and even, sometimes, famous actors show us their delicious, reliable, and easy meals. It's how they get dinner on the table quickly after a long day. Remember: They're just like us.
