One of the best ways to keep a group happy is to have chips and guacamole in the room but instead of buying premade guacamole that never tastes fresh, try making celebrity chef George Duran's recipe for the perfect guacamole! What makes it perfect? It has a satisfying crunch to it that comes from a fresh mixture of diced radishes and chives.
George Duran has been in the public eye for years, starting with a career in radio and TV production and continuing on to become a TV personality and celebrity chef. In 2005 he created his own show on the Food Network, Ham on the Street, and went on to host The Secret Life of… on the same network, which was about the history of the foods we all love. He published his first cook book in 2008, called Take This Dish and Twist It, which is full of anecdotes, tips, and of course, recipes. More recently he's been hosting TLC Ultimate Cake Off.
