Can You Spot A Fake Chef?

Why Food Is Like Fashion with Style Icon Simon Doonan

Simon Doonan has been called "the world's most famous window dresser," but he never wanted to be that stereotype of a fashion person, looking down his nose at everybody. He's always encouraged people to "dress like themselves." In other words, his approach to fashion is a lot like Dan's approach to food. And yet, people still expect both of them to be judgmental. So what does that say about our culture? And how did Simon become so self-assured? Plus, Simon talks about self-help, Marianne Williamson, and surviving the AIDS crisis in the 1980s.

Live: Pigs In Blankets: One Woman's Journey

Mary Giuliani grew up as one of the few Italian kids in a mostly Jewish town, so she went to lots of Bar and Bat Mitzvahs – the Jewish rite of passage that comes at age 13. And at these parties, while the other kids were slow dancing awkwardly, Mary was engaged in a different kind of youthful discovery – she was falling in love with pigs in blankets. Little did she know that this classic appetizer would become the foundation for her meteoric rise to catering stardom. In this week's show, taped live on stage, Mary talks about what she learned from her Grandma Lucille – a powerful hotel owner when few women held such a job -- and how working crazy hours, and struggling with infertility, affected her marriage.
