The notion behind the Exotic (Obedient) Ingredient is that the ingredient that was once out of reach becomes obedient once you learn how to master it. The ingredient intimidation melts away as you discover how to shop for it, what it looks like, where to find it, and finally how to cook it several ways. In a mere 30 minutes, something that was once beyond your approach is now readily embraced and subordinate. The Obedient Ingredient was born, not to mention that the two words rhyme and I'm a rapper. Sometimes it's just that simple.
