& now it’s time for Deep Thoughts with Hungry Tiger

June 7, 2012

Food is not just my profession; food is my passion. If I am not managing my floor staff or cooking for my private clients or catering an event or conducting my food tours or reading cookbooks or tweeting cocktails or referring friends that call me up and say, “We have 2 people and a baby and are in the West Village and want somewhere to bring the dog and eat Italian comfort food- where do we go?” to head to Barbuto, then I’m likely trying to figure out a way to get on TV and share this passion of mind and desire to teach people not to be afraid of food. Food isn’t porn- you can eat it and touch and and get your fingers dirty creating it- go out there and read about wine or taste a fresh pear or cook a chicken with you kids and eat the gizzard together but embrace it as the sustenance that it is and not as some liposuctioned, photo-shopped, hairless, glossy ideal but something incredible that no mater how amazing or horrible it is, we are still going to shit it out the next day and get on with the important things in our lives.
