Cady Huffman joins Let's Do Lunch! at Gaby Brasserie Francaise to talk about her fabulous one-woman show, Hungry and Horny! Cady tells host Robin Milling about her passion for food which began with her mother and grandmother's homemade meals growing up in Santa Barbara.
Food is life and love to Cady and she performs it all in song for one night only at 54 Below in New York City. In the show she explores her relationship to food such as grappling with the loss of her ex husband's cooking. She jokes, 'After 17 years of marriage I found myself 'divorced and hungry!' Cady talks about her dating escapades and how she's moved on.
Cady talks about her wondrous musical theater career which began as a teenage drag queen in La Cage Aux Folles and most recently as a Burlesque dancer in The Nance. Her dancing accomplishments began with Bob Fosse in Big Deal.
Gaby's Chef Sylvain Harribey, former winner of the Food Network's Chopped serves a delicious tasting and wine pairing. Beginning with butternut squash bisque in a capuccino cup, followed by fois gras delicately rolled with proscuitto and served with a mini beaker of truffle oil to drizzle over it, lamb loin on white bean puree, and an american standard 'Frenchinized,' as Chef puts it -- a hamburger or Franburger served on a crispy baguette with brie cheese.
