Seems like only yesterday I was celebrating the launch of Ingrid Hoffman’s Simply Deliciosio, her new cooking show on the Food Network. It was in the network’s New York City test kitchen, and I took along my food-obsessed friend Rebecca so we could save a couple of bucks gorging ourselves on free salmon with citrus glaze and an avocado puree on plantain chips. The Colombian-raised expert was thrilled to bring her Latin-inspired cuisine to the network. “I’m so grateful for this amazing opportunity,” she had said. Well, Ingrid must be doubly pleased now that Simply Delicioso has been picked for a second season. During forkfuls of mango slaw, I took a quick breather to ask Ingrid if there was any hunky A-lister’s kitchen she’d like to work her magic in, and who did she pick? None other than OK!’s Man Candy of the week, George Clooney. “I would feed him oysters with spice in them, really hot,” Ingrid purred. “And I’d whip up a champagne punch with brandied strawberries.” Feel free to RSVP through me, George!
