Luke Bergman may be the first American chef to ever win the coveted Trophée Passion, a prestigious cooking competition that relies on speed, skill and a working knowledge of classical French food.

But when it comes to everyday food, the chef de cuisine at Colicchio & Sons in New York City prefers simpler, lighter dishes, swapping olive oil for butter and using fresh herbs and citrus zest. His impressive-looking yet easy-to-execute whole roasted snapper cooks in only 15 minutes and is a great entry point for cooks who haven't cooked a whole fish before.
