Exciting News!

Hey guys! So we are officially 4 days away from our 4th Bocca Di Bacco location opening! I can't begin to describe how gorgeous it is looking! We've revamped the previous Il Bastardo location and will now be featuring the Il Bastardo Brunch every weekend. The Enomatic wine systems are in, chandeliers are hung and the bar is glistening! Our opening party will be on April 8th & 9th from 6-8pm with an open bar and appetizers. Open bar means it's time to party, right?! If you'd like to join us email I'd love to share this exciting time with all of you, so RSVP and come!!


In other exciting news, my first Food Network show premiers on April 7th at 9|8c! It's called "Kitchen Casino" and I'll be a judge alongside a few other familiar faces. Ladies, Bill Rancic is on there for one! It's a really fun show so I hope you all tune in and let me know what you think!


That morning I'll be whipping up a recipe on The Couch on CBS. What do you guys think I should make?

Looking forward to seeing you all for our opening party and feel free to ask my any questions! Follow me on Twitter and Instagram @KristinSollenne!

Food Network Here I Come!


I am VERY excited to share this news with all of you! I will be appearing in a new Food Network series, "Kitchen Casino"! Amongst all of my projects, I couldn't be more excited to become a part of the Food Network Family. The show will be full of excitement and of course, CHANCE! 

If you love "Chopped" and other cooking challenges, you'll love "Kitchen Casino". There will be three rounds of challenges for the four chefs coming to compete. The whole show takes from the "casino" vibe with pulling a slot machine for ingredients, spinning stations and even having to finish someone else's dish! 

It will be hosted by Bill Rancic and there will be a few other judges alongside me overseeing the challenges. This is a dream come true and I can't wait to hear what you guys think! 

The show will air on April 7th at 9|8c! Grab that popcorn!!!
