When Good Things Happen to Great People

gastrokidMy friend and GastroKid cofounder Hugh Garvey is one of those super creative types, with an arcane knowledge of samurai flicks and a serious Veronique Branquinho addiction. He’s also a great dad, fantastic cook and a really good guy. Which is why I couldn’t be more excited that his new GastroKid Cookbook is hanging out in the top 10 of Amazon.com‘s bestselling cookbooks (and in the top 200 bestselling of ALL books), has been featured in Cookie Mag, on ABC’s The View From the Bay, and today on DailyCandy Kids. It’s filled with awesome—and easy and accessible—family recipes for everyday cooking that will please all ages (his kids are 4 and 7), like Foaming Butter Basted New York Strip, Eggs de la Vera, Grilled Baby Octopus, and Shiitake Mushroom and Plum Tomato Pizza. Be sure to check out Hugh’s recipe for Roasted Chickpea Bruschetta. My friend Katie, Hugh and I tried Mario’s version at Babbo in New York several years ago. And guess what? Hugh’s is better. And yes, the kids will eat this up—that is if the adults don’t polish it off first.
