Last month my friend, former employer, and fellow classic hip-hop and R&B lover Chef Joey Campanaro released his heartwarming cookbook ☛BIG LOVE COOKING: 75 RECIPES FOR SATISFYING, SHAREABLE COMFORT FOOD [pub: Chronicle Books] with another talented friend, Theresa Gambacorta.
On Wednesday, May 1, 2019 I was invited to the Sunday Supper photo shoot at Little Owl restaurant. I worked part-time in the office at the time as the Receptions Director/Reservationist for Blackfoot Hospitality. My son was also invited to the shoot and well, he makes his modeling debut. 🤩 While my face doesn’t appear in the book, ahem, I thoroughly enjoyed and devoured all of Joey’s food as I always do.
JC cooks with love because he truly does and Little Owl feels like home because it is. With so much discomfort in the world, Big Love Cooking is just the warm hug we all need. Pick up this easy-to-follow cookbook just in time for the holidays and gift a copy or two to your friends and family. Enjoy re-creating delicious Italian-inspired dishes and more importantly, relish in sharing a meal and time with your loved ones… virtually or safely socially distancing. 🦉❤️ #JoeyFood #AllLove
Is there such a thing as too many bottles of wine? Nah!
