I'm in a loft and the kitchen is in the very center of the apartment. The whole place revolves around it.

Jay Leno is not a guy who likes change. He eats the same food every day.

Six months ago, I was just a writer for Esquire, typing up in my little garret on the far north side of Chicago, and no one had any idea who I was.

I like to have friends in the kitchen and make a big mess and use every pot in the kitchen.

However, I was a restaurant critic at Chicago magazine before I worked at Esquire, and I've been a really enthusiastic home cook for a long time. It's just something I'm passionate about.

You know the great irony is that people think you have to have money to enjoy fine food, which is a shame.

If I have committed any culinary atrocities, please forgive me.

I know that the single guys on the cast (which is everybody but me), hmm, well a lot more people flirt with you when you're on TV.

We're not out to turn rugged straight guys into weenies who paint their fingernails.
