"Food, like film, is performance. Both are dramatic, romantic, spectacular or sad," says Eric Ripert. Join him and guest Stanley Tucci as they start the day with vodka martinis, prepare lemon risotto and whole branzino, talk about their childhoods, quip over how actors are like chefs, and then toast over a bottle of wine while they enjoy the final dish. ""We laugh we cry, we cook,"" says Ripert. Bro bonding in the kitchen flourishes in Episode 3 of ON THE TABLE.

BAKED PORTOBELLO MUSHROOMS
4 large portobello mushrooms, skinned and stems removed
Fine sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
3 sprigs of fresh thyme, leaves removed
¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil, plus 3 tablespoons
4 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
1 large lemon, sliced ¼-inch thick
4 sprigs fresh rosemary
1 clove garlic, halved
½ pound mache, rinsed and dried
Preheat oven to 500˚F. Place mushrooms, stem-side up, on baking sheet. Season with salt and pepper. Arrange thyme leaves and garlic on top of each mushroom, and drizzle with olive oil. Transfer to oven and cook until tender, 8 to 10 minutes, or until a knife inserted into the middle of mushroom can easily be removed.
While mushrooms are cooking, make vinaigrette. Preheat a flattop or place a large skillet over high heat. Place lemons on flattop, and drizzle with 1 tablespoon olive oil. Cook until scorched, turning once, about 4 minutes. In a medium bowl, toss rosemary with 2 tablespoons olive oil, and transfer to heated surface. Cook until lightly browned, about 3 minutes. Return rosemary to the bowl; add garlic and season with salt and pepper. Add scorched lemons and gently crush with spatula or wooden spoon to release juice. Strain the vinaigrette, pressing firmly to release liquid. Adjust the seasoning with lemon juice and salt, if necessary, and set aside.
Remove garlic from mushrooms, and slice thinly. Arrange slices into a circle on each plate and drizzle with vinaigrette. Toss mache with 2 teaspoons vinaigrette, and place a small mound of greens in the center of mushrooms. Serve immediately.
*Note: to make ahead, let vinaigrette mixture marinate, covered, in the refrigerator for up to overnight before straining.
