Friends and fans of Sean Kanan and The Modern Gentleman, please check out this exclusive interview between Ciao Florentina and Sean.
Original Article: The Modern Gentleman-Cooking and Entertaining With Sean Kanan
I had the most delicious conversation with daytime’s baddest bad boy, the one and only, The Modern Gentleman: Sean Kanan ( aka Deacon Sharpe of The Young and The Restless/ Bold and the Beautiful ) author, actor producer and self taught gourmet chef.
I had a few very specific questions for him but somehow passionate conversation with this funny and captivating man just took over and before you know it two hours just flew away…
We did manage to get one answer down on paper:
Florentina: What would you have for your last supper on Earth ?
Sean Kanan: Egg rolls, Barbecue spare ribs, Oreo Cookie Milkshake, KFC drumsticks dunked in mashed potatoes, gravy and slaw while watching a movie in bed.
I love to ask this question because the answers are never what you would expect them to be – and it goes to prove my point every time: It is always back to the table and back to the bed! True story!
The bottom line is this : you need to get the book and you need to give a copy of this book to every man in your life so that they may learn and understand how to treat the women in their lives.
” The Modern Gentleman, Cooking and Entertaining with Sean Kanan ” is his first cookbook that I stayed up all night reading, word by word – Not only b/c I like to know what the heck it is that I’m talking about but b/c I was actually fully captivated by each page and his fantastic writing style.
No it wasn’t the spices nor his sexy photo that got me hooked but the fact that this is a highly educational and very important book!
From page one he takes today’s man back to school teaching all the things that us women hope and wish our date already has in his DNA. From manners to dating and setting the table and the mood at home, to picking the engagement ring and behaving as a gentleman, this bad boy is teaching men how to Win with sage advice: “ It’s not the size of the theater, it’s the talent on the stage “
The cookbook also has a nice range of recipes a lot of them inspired by Sean’s stay in Italia while competing as a celebrity contestant on Ballardo con le Stelle ( The Italian version of Dancing with the Stars).
Like honey out of a comb Sean’s passion for cooking, life and love oozes from every single page.
From Pappardelle Gemelle , Lobster Mac & Cheese to Cannolis – the only problem with this book will be deciding what to make first – I’m having this dilemma right now !
I honestly love everything about this book, it is one of a kind and without a doubt the one cook book every man and woman should have on their book shelf.
” The Modern Gentleman offers women a front row seat in the theater of the male psyche and throws back the curtain.”
I also love a lot about the man behind the book, besides our common passion for cooking and family he is clearly a real genuine person in a town full of fakes. He recently traveled to Washington DC to encourage Members of Congress to create anti-bullying legislation and for that I applaud and respect him enormously.
Please stop by to meet him at one of his upcoming book signings! Check the attached calendar at the end of the post.
