Watch my appearance on ABC’s The View from the Bay here.
Here is a slew of photos that I have taken on my past 2 trips to Europe, they are from both Italy and London. These photos show the true passion for food that Europeans have and how the whole beast is a very important part of their lives. From a simple game bird to a horse meat butcher, and speciality tripperia all have there place in the daily markets.
I took most of these photos in Turino at the Slow Food Terra Madre tasting halls. Also at Bourough Market in London, which has a great amount of beautiful meats and products when i was there they were celebrating there anniversary with a parade in period dress.
The Next Iron Chef premiers this Sunday, Oct 7th at 9PM/8C. You can watch a preview here:
This reality show is going to outdo all the others. The teaser will give you a glimpse of what it was like–it was fucking hard! (watch and see how often they have to bleep me). The other chefs have huge talent and a ton of experience. It’s a great group, and I was honored to compete with them. You can view all of their sites by clicking the names below:

Watch Sunday night as we all get ripped apart by the three esteemed judges; “The Mauler” Andrew Knowlton, “The Brawler” Donatella Arpaia, and “The Stickler” Michael Ruhlman. So, dear readers, place your bets in Vegas, set your tivo or whatever you may use to record, because you don’t want to miss this show!
I would also like to thank the staff of Food Network and Triage Entertainment who made this show possible. I can’t name you all, but you know I love you (especially you, Bruce).
