Model’s gluttonous sins | Julien Herrera

I have never written about food on this blog. 
Never ever. 
But gluttonous sins are an intriguing subject…right?

Especially if the protagonist is a sexy and tattooed new face: I have just come across an interview on Essen mag (unfortunately available in Italian only) with Jullien Herrera which topic, weird enough, was food.
Apparently this hottie, who is fast becoming a favorite of photographers and fashion editors, really likes to eat proper food and seriously dislikes all the kind of light and fake “model’s food” you get during Fashion Week. Plus, he knows how to cook! No jokes. …and I absolutely love guys that are good at cooking because I’m not what you would call a Chef, not at all!
So if you know how to cook, and even if you don’t but you want to give Jullien’s favorite dish (the one he is crazy about!!) a try yourself, here we go, he was kind enough to give us his personal recipe of “Pasta with Vodka”:
Ingredients: 1 tbsp. olive oil, 1/2 glass of vodka, 2 cans of tomatoes (keep their juice and smash them in the mixer/blender), 1 spoon of salt, a pinch of minced red pepper,  1 big cup of cocking cream, 200ml of skimmed milk, 200 gr of pasta (penne), 24 minced basilico leaves (fresh), 200gr of pecorino roman (typical Italian sheep chees)
Preparation: Heat oil in skillet over medium heat. Stir in the tomatoes, and 200ml of skimmed milk. Stir continuously for 5 minutes. Add vodka. Heat over high heat. Stir 1 big cup of cooking cream and pepper. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat. Cook pasta according to directions.
Place drained pasta into frying pan, add Pecorino Romano cheese, and mix thoroughly for about 2 minutes. Top with Pecorino Romano grated cheese and fresh basil.
Make sure you let me know if you try it and if you like it!
Unfortunately in Milan it is too hot right now to even think about cooking pasta…
For my Italian readers, check here the full interview.
