#TBT - When Mario Batali Told Me Dominique Ansel Wasn't Wearing Underwear

This past weekend I attended another event by (RED)'s Eat (RED), Drink (RED), Save Lives Campaign, but this one was at my favorite place in the world, Smorgasburg. Mario Batali and Dominique Ansel judged a competition, which I wrote about for the Village Voice. Check it out here: Have a Taste of the Smorgasburg (RED) Dish Competition

I interviewed Batali and Ansel before the festivities, and here's part of the interview that didn't make it into the article:

LGBM: I asked you last time I met you if you were going to wear red Crocs on the launch date for (RED). Did you actually wear them?

Batali: I did!

Ansel: You can wear red underwear.

LGBM: What are you wearing that's red?

Batali: He's commando, I'm pretty much gonna bet...

Ansel: I can't show you.

LGBM: Ok, maybe next time!

Thus, in conclusion, I basically asked Dominique Ansel to show me his cronuts. Smoooooooth.
