We hope you ate lunch, because you're about to get really hungry. Starving. Stomach growling. Nom, nom, nom. This morning, we're all about calories, thanks to the white-hot new nourishment site The Food Life. A collaboration between publicist Michael King and M.A.C.'s Lauren Levinger, this "online destination for the food curious," brings, well, foodie culture to the masses. Even if you're not up on your Zagat or don't know who won the last season of Top Chef, this epicurean adventure demystifies the whole culinary-snob culture, with testimonials from tastemakers like the Ruschmeyer's hoteliers, Nicole Richie and Alexander Wang—who all share their favorite recipes, entertaining tips, restaurants…yep, it's all about food! Of course, we got the skinny (riiiiight) from the site's founders themselves, who invited us over to Levinger's Fort Greene pad for dinner. Four blurry hours later, we had tried everything from model Britt Marren's Skinny Bitch Carrot Cake to Vena Cava's very dangerous (and very alcoholic) punch. Don't worry, we've got easy recipes and scrumptious snaps, so you, too, will have to squeeze an extra gym visit in before the weekend.
Check out our behind-the-scenes look at the delicious new food site, The Food Life, with 3 recipes you can make yourself!
