Okay, there’s just no elegant way to escape saying this – I have a huge, throbbing, aching Internet crush onChef Billy Parisi. There, I’ve said it – now I can move on and focus on explaining what it is that drew me in, and what it is that sets Billy and Fix My Recipe apart from many other chef-centric cooking shows.
