We all wonder what celebrities eat, right?
Well, thanks to a new book by a pair of music industry insiders, we have a first-hand glimpse of what is on the dinner tables in the homes of Michael Buble, Clay Aiken, Reba McEntire, Andrea Bocelli and other music royalty.
The book, “Bless This Table” ($29.95, hardcover, Rogers & Cowan) is by Teri Diamond and Jaymes Foster, sister of well-known music producer David Foster.
There are plenty of easy, folksy recipes, including this Italian take on veal from Bocelli.
