Baker Dave invites Shawnn Martin, Chef Manager for Aramark at Temple, to the set of Baker Dave Presents to prepare a dish Shawnn regularly cooks for his family: Hot and Smoky Pasta Casserole. A wildly flavorful twist on mac and cheese with 6-8 types of cheese and smoked paprika, the pasta casserole involves advanced technique and many ingredients, but Shawnn expertly walks Dave and the audiences through the recipe.
Shawnn is a North Philadelphia native and comes from a family of cooks and bakers. He talks about his beginnings in the culinary industry as a dish washer and how he worked his way up to being a chef.
