Italian Eye Candy

Lucky me...
on the train ride back from Florence to Certaldo..
I spotted one of Italy's new hot chef's.

foto from book: Se in Cucina c'e Simone

Simone Rugiati, is a bomb of energy.
He has a 10 minute recipe show on the Gambero Rosso Channel is a guest chef on a well known morning show called Prova del Cuoco, in RAI and also does consulting, catering..and just came out with a new book
Se in cucina c'e Simone ... menu's for all occassions..
It is in Italian, with a DVD so would be a fun way to learn Italian..and cook!

check out his site
the book will be available online soon!

His new show SOSimone, he has a guest in the kitchen and helps them out!

Not just another pretty face, he was charming and really a smart cookie!


  1. .. and they wonder why people are crazy about Italian food? Yum! ;)

  2. When I was first coming to Italy, my girlfriend told me Italy was a candy store you can have who you want so pick carefully!
    she wasn't kidding.

    I must say, coming from California, I had my fill of beautiful men.. and when I first arrived here I didn't find the Italian men beautiful.. in that California way.

    But all it took was 5 minutes... and when you talk to an Italian, and he looks in your eyes when he speaks.. he looks into your soul!

    They have an inbred sense of self that lets you know they think they are God's gift to women..

    and they are!
    Ok not all of them..but a really high ratio!

  3. I will not comment. I will not comment. Any comment is totally due to my hormoones...
