Our favorite Culinistas and ‘Work Wives’ show us how well they know each other.
Last night, our co-founder Jess Latham put Jill Donenfeld and Tiana Tenet, the co-founders of The Culinistas, in the hot seat on IG Live. The three of them played a version of The Newlywed Game to see how well Jill and Tiana really know each other and their party habits. Tiana’s baby shower was cancelled due to COVID-19, so we quizzed Jill on how Tiana would want to celebrate it if quarantine wasn’t a hurdle.
Read on to see what Jill got right and wrong about Tiana’s dream baby shower…
Jill: Celebs with substance: Katie Couric, Serena Williams, George & Amal. Plus her friend Jen who lives in Maine!
Tiana: My sister, Dana, and brother in-law, Angad, who live in HK. The godparents, Jordan, David & Jay. And my husband, John, of course.
Jill: Burrata Bar, Spring Pea & Arugula Salad, Lobster Rolls, Ricotta Pizza, Fudge Brownies, Berry Bowl.
Tiana: Burrata Bar, Confetti Shrimp, Steamers, Calabrian, Cauliflower, Chocolate Fudge Brownies.
Jill: Tequila is her drink of choice, so we’d make our Work Wife, which is a rosemary-infused paloma. It is also delicious virgin.
Tiana: I love tequila! So a Spicy Margarita and Fresh Watermelon Juice for the expecting mommas.
Jill: She is classic but she is also, like, GUCCI. I am feeling The Doppio, but can also see her getting into True Blue.
Tiana: True blue — since it’s a boy!
Jill: She would hire a magician.
Tiana: NO games!
Jill: My girl is a disco queen, so let’s say ABBA (hey, she’s also married to a Greek) and then throw in some Aretha & Whitney.
Tiana: Live music is a must, so a 3 piece band with an indie-pop feel, definitely some Sam Smith, Fleetwood Mac & Aretha Franklin.
