the ultimate food high
– Megan Falk
Much like Bobby Flay, all of you Aquarius’ may find yourselves to be inventive beings. You never settle for the latest fad, and instead, you create your own concoction of innovation and tradition. You have a competitive streak and are highly confident in your skills. Yet, you do not come across as arrogant, as you hide your feelings deep within, giving off the appearance that you’re detached and unemotional. Nonetheless, your prominent friendly, loyal attitude makes you liked by all.
With a full imagination and intuitive scope, you may find yourself relating to Duff Goldman. You’re a kind, sympathetic individual, and much like Duff, you believe in investing in the future, specifically in those who will one day lead this country. You give up your free time to educate children about your passions and teach them right from wrong, baking skills or otherwise. As a Pisces, you don’t take life too seriously; instead, you just enjoy the ride.
As an Aries, you constantly boast your knowledge and skills in a way reminiscent of Giada De Laurentiis. You love to be the center of everyone’s attention, and as a child, you would have to stay inside for recess because you talked too much during class. Because of your confidence, you often flaunt everything you have, appearance and otherwise. You’re the most popular kid on the playground, Aries, and though you may have some enemies, you know they are just jealous.
As the warm-hearted sign, all of you Taurus’ can feel a deep connection with Barefoot Contessa. Just like Ina, you enjoy the simple, classy things in life like dinner parties, and you are always jamming out to the “Classical Essentials” playlist on Spotify. Taurus’s are prepared to conquer any issue that could impede on your path, and most importantly, you are the most loving and selfless of all. Much like Ina, you find yourself doing all of the cooking for your significant other and ensuring that each of your guest’s specific needs are met, whether it’s a love for cheddar or desire to sit at the far end of the table.
While he hosts the all-intensive Chopped, Ted Allen acts much like the versatile and lively Gemini. Both you and Ted offer witty remarks on the competitors’ plating skills and infer on the choices made on their dishes. You, Gemini, may also find yourself easily adapting to whatever life throws at you, and you make some frozen, raspberry lemonade with a hint of mint when it hands you lemons. Just like champagne, you’re the most bubbly of the bunch, and you bring life and scholarly conversations to any Sunday brunch.
Though intuitive and imaginative in the kitchen, you find yourself overly emotional when it comes to dealing with people. As a kid, your parents would reprimand you for your dramatic eye roll when they didn’t let you spend the night at Suzie’s house, but today, you own your sass. Like Anne, you tell people exactly how you feel, and you don’t care how hurtful it could be. What doesn’t kill you only makes you stronger, right?
Much like Paula, you generous Leos often find yourselves to be the “Mom” of the friend group. You care deeply about each of their lives and ensure that they are all taking their daily vitamins and getting a full eight hours of sleep. You are also a firm believer in the “Treat yo self” mantra — the four sticks of butter you just put in your cookie dough may have negative health effects, but at least you weren’t suffering through a bitter Kale salad. It’s all about the mental health!
Whether you enjoy collecting stamps or quarters, you Virgos can relate to Alton’s peculiar collection of over 200 bowties. You’re a meticulous being, Virgo, and you always need to know every detail of a friend’s first date with a crush or exactly how many pumps of caramel the barista is putting in your macchiato. You may be somewhat of a perfectionist, but your quirks always steal the spotlight and make you loved by all.
With their easygoing and carefree personalities, both Libras and Rachael Ray alike act as your typical girl-next-door. People can’t seem to stay away from your charming and flirtatious remarks, causing you to be the most sought after individual in town. Yet, you tend to be indecisive with large commitments and become involved in too many obligations. As Rachael simultaneously shows off her culinary expertise and produces her own brand of dog food, you joined Delta Sigma Pi while pursuing a painting degree. Either way, you think there are too many opportunities out there to ignore. The world is your oyster, young Libra.
As the most powerful of the signs, Robert Irvine encompasses your soul all the best. With your forceful and intimidating demeanor, you succeed in making others feel as if they on an episode of Scared Straight. You and Robert keep your personal lives a secret, never letting anyone know what makes you tick. But, friends and strangers alike remain drawn to your magnetic and mysterious personality, counting on your intuition to solve any problem that comes your way. Use your power wisely, Scorpio, as one day you may knock down that restaurant wall that was meant to be standing.
You’re as jovial as they come, Sagittarius, just like Guy Fieri. You’re adventurous and enjoy taking risks for the sole sake of saying “I’ve done that!” Due to your light-hearted attitude, you aren’t afraid to show off your true self, including that unflattering view of your face while you’re stuffing your mouth with a cheeseburger. Despite your daredevil attitude, there is a part of you that is stuck in the past. Whether it’s with your Justin Timberlake frosted tips or Juicy Couture velour tracksuit, you have a hard time letting go of who you once were.
As a Capricorn, you’re a practical being, just like Geoffrey Zakarian. You know each ingredient’s purpose while you’re cooking, and you know the best time to buy those pair of shoes that are far too expensive for your salary. You understand that the best things come to those who wait, making you the most patient grasshopper. That being said, you can be judgmental of those who rush through life or the kitchen. But beware of becoming overly pessimistic and, instead, acknowledge and spread the Capricorn mindset: savor the moment.
