Confession: I have a foodie crush on Tom Colicchio.

I admit it.  I have a foodie crush on Tom Colicchio.  Since my bad-boy foodie crush will always be filled by Anthony Bourdain, Tom plays the role of the nice guy counterpart.  This is something I really can’t explain, simply because he’s not the stereotypical hot guy.  He’s just magnetic.  And he can cook. What more do you want? I’m sure if I ever met him in person, I’d turn into a shy, 8th grade girl all over again.

I was lucky enough to get a sneak peek of his new online show, ”HOOKED UP” on the Reserve Channel.  Tom’s first guest is renegade chef and food personality Eddie Huang.  What’s cool about this new channel is there are fewer edits and more honesty. BRUTAL honesty. I love it!  

Note:  There are plenty of F-bombs on this video clip, so make sure the kids aren’t around when you watch it!  <blush>Yes Tom, I would get up at 5 a.m. to go shark fishing with you </blush>.

Please tell me I’m not the only one with a foodie crush.  Who is yours?
