one of the nicest ( rather he agrees or not ) chefs out there, smart and funny ... a success that all new chefs can aspire to....but not even the best chefs, and their new book tour, are a match for super storm Sandy..... he has a new cookbook out , and all the recipes that I baked out of it were amazing.... the recipes were a pleasure to follow ( no tricky steps).. but most of all  the coconut creme pie was to die for.... and as a matter of fact.... the whole pie on this table disappeared to the control room, never to be seen again..... unfortunately his book tour was cut short by super storm Sandy ....... even so it does deserve attention.... good stories to go with great recipes and some really unusual items that are really worth the second look..... check out the cornbread stuffing it was sooooo good ...and the 2 pound salmon filet ( thanks Peter's Fish Market for looking out for me )  for the recipes check out http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-505263_162-57541107/the-dish-tom-douglas-salmon-with-shiitake-relish/

Live with Kelly and Michael and Thanksgiving

This year one of my thanksgiving jobs was a week at LIVE WITH KELLY AND MICHAEL... This studio is always a good time to go along with the hard work... and not surprising all the recipes were great  and you can get them on their website  ... just some behind the scene pics ...... it is not everyday that i get to style food while dodging the big balls

Kelly's soup was amazing !!!

even Gelman cooked !!!!!
you can not go wrong with marshmallows

Thanksgiving , Chef Fabio Viviani and CBS This Morning

a great morning with an amazing twist on thanksgiving ... check it out ... recipes show a new and fresh twist on the old standbys.... ( i know there are some of us who do not find turkey fascinating ) and some good twists on the sides as well ...... i like sharing thanksgiving favorites from other people ...traditions are great but it is always good to try something new as well ...
