This “Bear-Naked” Chef Has A Thing Or Two To Teach You About Italian Cooking

Our favorite naked chef is back this week to show us how to make Paccheri Con Gamberi, a traditional shrimp-and-pasta dish that’s incredibly easy to make.


Adrian De Berardinis, the self-described “bear-naked” chef, wears only a jockstrap and an apron while whipping-up his delicious concoctions in the kitchen. He says he began the web series as a way to show queers that cooking can be both fun and sexy.


“I hope that people who love food can appreciate and experiment with my recipes, as they are unique, easy-to-make personal and delicious,” De Berardinis told The Huffington Post. “Anyone that is scared to try something new or is afraid of sophisticated food can find my food accessible. And for those who do have the skill already, hopefully they will take away a dish that they’ve never tried or eaten before. But above all, I hope that they don’t take what I’m doing too seriously even though the food is legit. I hope everyone enjoys it and has fun while watching each episode!”
