My kitchen resembles that of a ZOO most of the time…
So it was almost MANDATORY that I be invited to a prescreening of the new ZOOlander movie.
See what I did there?
Just another similarity to my kitchen, perhaps?
Along with TONS of visual stimulation, including…
- The ludicrous fashion statements
- Mugatu and Alexanya Atoz’s make out session
- Penelope Cruz’s… High beams?
- The death of Justin Bieber
- Zoolander‘s son’s hair
- And the fact that…
THIS GUY NEVER AGES!
The fact that one of my favorite dishes on the face of the planet was labeled “FATTENING”!
To prove to Zoolander, Hansel, and Mugatu (along with all fashion designers out there who tell models to quit eating)… that this DOES NOT HAVE TO BE THE CASE… I did what I do best and gave this recipe a healthy make-over.
I know for A FACT, that if the puttanesca I recreated was actually an outfit, and I wore it to a star-studded event… The late Joan Rivers would dub me the QUEEN OF FASHION.
Sure, you might think I am bias, considering this recreated puttanesca is my own creation but… I had a taste tester… And she too agreed!

If you’re anything like Zoolander (hopefully you’re not?)… Then you might not be able to read good, so why not just watch the latest Zoolander-Inspired GiGi Eats Celebrities YouTube video in order to learn how to create the dish every supermodel would have NO PROBLEM chowing down on the night before a nude photo shoot!
So Tell Me…
- Who saw Zoolander 2? Thoughts…
- What GiGi Eats recipes could you see “strutting” down the runway?
- What’s your favorite zoo animal?
- How do you spaghetti squash?
- Anchovies: yay or nay?
- What random fact, off the top of your head, do you know about a specific food (i.e. capers are high in quercetin, a natural antihistamine)?
