The Spotted Pig - Manhattan

Let me show you some food porn....









I REALLY couldn't choose, but this I was sober enough to remember...prunes inside of a pare wrapped in bacon.  You know, bacon always wins...hands down.



Tart-tarts with thyme. bacon and geuyrere....ok, these also made your eyes roll to the back of your head too.



Just an essence of the "cooking studio".



See the girl in the off the shoulder zebra print blouse?  We're bff's now...go figure.


Prey waiting to be delic-ified...seriously!



Chef April!  She adopted me..really all I had to say was grits and crawfish and just like that, she adopted me!  She is a genius!



Chef April took root vegetables, turnips, potaotes, parsnips, potatoes, onions, various heirloom carrrots, and roasted them, covered with just a little salt...

Rough mashed them with a fork, added a little chicken stock and some white wine and wa-la...



Served this amazing soup.  As much as I love to mix up the seasonings, I questioned her and salt was all this soup required, it was amamzing!

When you visit NYC, go to Manhatten and visit Chef April.  Tell her,  her adopted child from Tennessee via the Big Easy sent ya....she'll take really good care of you, I promise.

Tomorrow on the set with Regis and Kelly and cake decorating lessons with the Cake Boss!  I can't wait!!!!
