Uova In Trippa by Il Bagatto

    So as you guys know from a previous post I LOVE Il Bagatto restaurant in New York City. For 10 years I have been going there with friends and family, and I have never been disappointed. As time went on over the years I got to know the owners Julio and Beatrice, and have come to consider them friends. This past September I got married to P2 in a small ceremony held in the lower level of Il Bagatto, and if it wasn't for the enormous generosity of Julio and Beatrice it would not been half as amazing as it was.  Shortly after our ceremony we hosted a brunch which was served family style, and the star of the show  was the Uova in Trippa. It's like pasta made from an omelet and tossed in tomato sauce.  I have been craving this lately so I decided to share with you guys the video of the beautiful Beatrice making this spectacular dish! Enjoy the video and if you can get to Alphabet City in Manhattan get your ass to Il Bagatto .  (My family after the weddin

Bitchin interview with the gorgeous Nadia G!

Earlier this month P2 and I had the pleasure of being invited to Logo's 2012 NewNowNext Awards in Hollywood, CA, and it was a crazy night! We got to hang with some of the ladies from RuPaul's Drag Race, Rye Rye , Kerli , and even the stunning super model Andrej Pejic . I even got to sit next to the very hansom Chef Stuart O'keefe ! After walking the carpet P2 , and I headed to the pre-party. That is code for the open bar prior to show time. We ordered a drink, clinked glasses to praise the fun night ahead, and kissed. Just then, in a sultry voice we heard "you guys are hot.." I looked over and it was no other than the GORGEOUS Nadia G from her hit show on Cooking Channel " Bitchen Kitchen ". I was taken back by how beautiful she was and how amazing her dress was. (Her 5 pound dress to be exact. She let us know as we were inspecting it!) She introduced us to her friend and Social Media Manager /Goddess Anqelique, (who is AMAZBALLS too)  and

Animal Respect!

I was in the new Foragers Market in Chelsea, and saw this. A whole pig being fabricated out in front of the butcher area so we could all see. Although at first sight it's a bit of a shock to see, it is really a wonderful thing. 1. It's proof there are no weird factory things happening to the pork before it gets to you. 2. You can see the animal is being respected. These things make a big difference to us when deciding where to shop and/ or eat.   Thanks Foragers!! And by the way... Your rotisserie chickens are AMAZING!! If you guys are in Chelsea you need to stop by Foragers and check it out! They also have a great restaurant and a sick little wine shop!!
