Our favorite furball foodie Adrian De Berardinis is back with the second episode of The Bear-Naked Chef (watch the first one HERE), his web series in which he cooks delicious Italian dishes wearing little more than an apron (in this case, a set of striped white tube socks).
On the menu this time is Paccheri Con Gamberi (tube pasta with shrimp) inspired by his visits to the Amalfi Coast.
“The beauty of this dish is in its simplicity, highlighting the freshness of its few ingredients. An easy recipe that everyone will want to try and will indulge in its sophisticated flavor profile.”
Watch (viewers at work may want to wait for a more private setting):
When the show premiered, Adrian told us:
“I’m at a juncture in my life where I am fearless about most everything. I am comfortable in my skin and it took me a long time to arrive at this place. My experience has brought me to this point of wanting to share who I am with the world, ‘exposed and un-cut’ as well as my cooking. I have a voice that wants to be heard. My cooking is my art, and I want to share it in my own way, in my own language. Why naked? Cooking naked sets me free. When I cook I’m in my most primal state of mind so it made total sense to execute it in the buff.”
“Challenges would be that you must be careful, obviously with not injuring yourself. Splattering oil can hurt like a bitch…But It forces me to take extra care with what I’m doing and not rush and to stay focused. The reward is that you feel free when doing it. You feel sexy and a little naughty.”
