In this month’s Philadelphia Magazine, John Gonzalez accompanies Philadelphia chef and Bravo’s Top Chef winner Kevin Spraga on a quest to eat all of the food in Citizens Bank Park as part of this year’s Best of Philly series.
I’m not sure what the best part of the article is: Gonzo’s misery or the fact that I learned there’s a place in CBP that serves a cannoli cupcake:
I thought we were done. He thought we were done.
We are not done.
We are told we simply must try this dessert.
What happens next is wholly unexpected: We finish both cupcakes, and simultaneously agree they are the best things we ate all night.
“The only negative,” he says, “is there’s a lot of icing.” Then he quickly reconsiders: “If I didn’t eat all this other stuff, that wouldn’t be a problem. This is killer and creative. A cannoli cupcake! Are you shitting me?”
I want. I want one so bad.
I’m also completely jealous of Gonzo. Not only because that’s the kind of article I was born to write. But Gonzo’s got the kind of name recognition I can only dream of. I mean, how else can he land such big name interviews like this one?
Oh, and the icing on the cupcake is the video at the end of the article. I initially read this in the actual dead-tree version of the magazine, but the video makes it so much better.
