un-barefoot contessa

March 21, 2012 10 Comments

Well, since my monthly resolution post about making breakfast was such a hit, I decided to take the hint and give the people what they want... more food related illustrations with the return of my "in the kitchen" girl. This version of my high heel wearing gourmand was inspired by Eva Longoria's spread in People Magazine about celebrity chefs. Isn't she adorable? I've never really bought into the whole celebrity chef thing (how does on-screen talent automatically translate to being an authority on cuisine?) but I will admit, there is something to be said for the magic of an image of a beautiful woman cooking. I mean no disrespect, Ina Garten. You are still my idol!!! But alas, Ina is the barefoot contessa and I tend to put shoes on all my girls so Eva served as perfect inspiration for this sketch!
