MARK BEGO'S EAT LIKE A ROCK STAR @ CUTTING ROOM

Author Mark Bego’s bash at Steve Walter’s Cutting Room recently was a singular success. There to officially launch his Eat Like A Rock Star (Skyhorse Publishing), which contains more than 100 recipes from rock stars: from Richie Sambora, to Bill Wyman, Boz Scaggs, Joey Fatone, Ray Parker, Jr., Micky Dolenz and Michael McDonald, the book is lavishly produced, with photos and bios for each chef, from Bego. With 62 rock-bios to his credit, Bego said that invariably the topic of food would come up during his interviews and often, the stars themselves would prepare their favorite dish for Bego. “I well remember interviewing Bill Wyman, of the Rolling Stones, and though he said he didn’t cook at first, he eventually opened up and gave me a terrific recipe (Lamb Chops with Endive Salad).”

Seen amongst the crowd, which was served a special white Sangria that the author himself prepared, were Gene Cornish from The Rascals; Cory Daye from The Savannah Band; Paul Antonelli from Animotion; songsmith Mike Greenly (“My Fire”); Imaginary Friends’ Beth Wernick; Randy Jones and Will Grega; Lou Christie; Marie Sacino Hanlon; Donnie Dacus; Bego’s longtime PR-pasha David Salidor with fellow PR-man Randy Alexander; and the group The Hit Men with Lee Shapiro.
With the book currently on amazon’s best Selling Cookbooks list, a sequel is definitely in the offing.
