Mandy Moore Makes Gnudi at The Spotted Pig

In this week's issue of New York magazine, singer, songwriter, and actress Mandy Moore not only discusses her upcoming album and newlywed life, but she also rolls up her sleeves to learn how to make ricotta gnudi and deviled eggs in the kitchen of West Village gastropub The Spotted Pig.

While there, Moore shares the dishes that she grew up on, her goal to throw a dinner party with friends, and her love for the Sham Wow. Although a slideshow of action shots reveal her unfamiliarity with cooking, she admits to enjoying food.

I like eating. I admire people with that talent, you know, someone that can walk in, take ingredients out of the fridge and just sort of whip something up. Or just to innately know, like, how you hard-boil an egg. That's something I would have to Google.

Despite Mandy's lack of kitchen knowledge, there's something endearing about her earnest attempt to make gnudi from scratch. Are you surprised that she's trying to learn how to cook?

I just made Deviled Eggs this morning, and was wondering how other people make them. Do you have a few recipes you can post, Yum?

Wow, she's impressed if someone knows how to hard-boil an egg. I think she's someone who knows less about cooking than I do. That's a marvel to me, as I consider myself a really simple, basic cook.
