On Monday, November 24th, the current "Miss Universe", Gabriela Isler, joined me at God's Love We Deliver in Brooklyn, NY, to help prepare meals for the sick and home-bound this holiday season. I interviewed Gabriela, who says she "loves to spend time in the kitchen, cooking, baking," and that God's Love is one of her favorite places to volunteer (you may recognize God's Love as the charity that Joan Rivers played for, and won, in season 2 of Celebrity Apprentice). In the video below, Gabriela names her favorite dishes and foods, reveals her favorite guilty pleasure is sweets, and jokes that she would be up for her own cooking show, with me as the host, once her reign as Miss Universe ends!
I also teamed up with MasterChef season 5 contestants Francis Legge and Victoria Scroggins who give their tips for preparing Thanksgiving meals, as well as what it's like to be in the God's Love kitchen versus the MasterChef one with Gordon Ramsey. At the end I get the group to perform a stanza of a holiday classic, along with GLWD's Director of Operations, Emmett Findley!
God's Love We Deliver is the New York City metropolitan area's leading provider of nutritious, individually-tailored meals to people who are too sick to shop or cook for themselves. Founded in 1985 when one woman began delivering food on her bicycle to a man dying from AIDS, God's Love now cooks 4,600 meals each weekday, delivering them to clients living with life-altering illnesses in all five boroughs of New York City, Newark and Hudson County, New Jersey. All of our services are provided free of charge to our clients, their children and to the senior caregivers of our senior clients, without regard to income, and we have never maintained a waiting list. Because we believe the combination of hunger and serious illness is a crisis, we deliver food within 24 - 48 hours of first being contacted. God's Love We Deliver is a non-sectarian organization, providing meals with the strong belief of "food as medicine." To that end, we employ a team of registered dietitians who individually tailor meals to each client's specific medical requirements. God's Love provides all services by employing a small but dedicated professional staff and with the critical assistance of 8,000 volunteers annually.
