As executive pastry chef of Colicchio & Sons in New York City, Collucci’s desserts are elegantly refined yet comforting. As a self-proclaimed “chocolate freak,” Collucci loves indulging in invigorating ingredients and in-season fruit. He also just released his first cookbook, Glazed, Filled, Sugared & Dipped: Easy Doughnut Recipes to Fry or Bake at Home. A pastry chef who's finally bringing home the secrets to the perfect American doughnut? That’s our kind of man.
Date-night dinner: Trying to replicate mom’s chicken cutlets is always entertaining and appreciated. Lately my wife and I have been making sushi at home, which has been fun. Fortunately my wife has a sweet tooth and is a big fan of my pecan buttercrunch, so I break that out on special occasions.
Favorite way to sweat: When I’m at the gym, I like to get in some cardio on a treadmill or elliptical. Weather permitting, I like jogging around my neighborhood with Afrojack blasting in my ears to get my heart rate up.
Food splurge: When I really feel like indulging and calorie counts go out the window, I can house an entire Brownie Earthquake Sundae from Dairy Queen in a matter of minutes. Grape soda is also a secret (or not so secret) obsession of mine.
