Ryan Murphy and Carly Blasutti have run MamaPapa Catering Co. over the past several years, but they really put themselves on the culinary map when they opened their delicious venture PUBLIC Kitchen & Bar a few years ago.

To be the best cook you can be, I think you have to stick to the basics. Get good old-school cookbooks — Larousse, Julia Child and those kinds of books — and really try those recipes out until you get good at them.

Get good cast-iron pans, good quality knives and buy good ingredients. Get good at the recipes with them and have some fun and play around.
