Desperate Chefs' Wives Sans Me?

Way back when in October 2007, there was an article written about the wives. Page Six magazine did a little spread that was springboard from this blog. I've always had the magazine, but I'm only now deciding to share it with you. It was my first press about the blog and this little blog baby was only a few months old. I was still writing anonymously at the time and when Valerie Stivers-Isakova decided to interview me I was thrilled. BUT since I was writing anonymously I couldn't reveal my name or participate in this amazing photo shoot. The two-page spread had stunning wives all dressed up in evening wear. When the article was written I had no idea there was going to be any photos. Boy, was I shocked when I rushed to the newsstand that brisk Sunday morning.

Click each picture to see the full photo and article pages.

Looking back on it now, I'm so happy the article was written. It was in the infancy of the blog and I would have much more interesting things to say now, but I think it was a glimpse of things to come. Maybe I'll get a photo shoot with all of you! I'm not sure, but I get the sense that the women in this article don't read my blog. Who's missing out now?

-Gate Hailie Maya "Maya", dating Marcus Samuelsson, and I've met Maya-she's even more stunning than that picture and just as friendly as can be.

Aw, Hil! That would've been so fun to see you all glammed up in a crazy gown...I think they should do it all over again with some of your regulars. You know, we could find a way to organize this ourselves somehow...
