Pastry ... yea... its his pastry....

Oh me oh my!!

This is Johnny Iuzzini. Isn’t he handsome? He is the 2006 James Beard Foundation winner for “Outstanding Pastry Chef of the Year”. Wait….you don’t know what that is? What the helz is wrong with you?? It’s the Oscars, Tony’s, Grammy’s and Superbowl all rolled into one for foodies. (Foodie- informal term for a particular class of aficionado of food and drink)

He also released a book called ‘Dessert Fourplay: Sweet Quartets From A Four-Star Pastry Chef’


I think it’s the sweet and innocent look on his face and then BAM …. His arms are tatted up. There’s something to be said about a man that looks like he's all vanilla and then all of the sudden there is wide ribbon of dark chocolate. Sweet, innocent with a dark edge. YUM!

Now, I am by far not a fancy chef. If I was put on Top Chef or Iron Chef I would crumple under the pressure…well maybe not crumple but you would see me leaning against the counter drinking a glass of wine whilst my competitors raced around me. As long as I had my red...all would be fine. But this super hunky chef makes me want to temper some chocolate, puff some pastry and cream some whip. I mean....look at those hands! So steady, so sure, so .... so.... manly!

This....by the way starts my new infatuation with what I like to refer to as "hunky chefs..that should date me."
