Kathy Wakile Dishes on the Joys of Dessert...and the "Sexiest" Sweet You Can Eat!

Currently visiting sunny Los Angeles, former The Real Housewives of New Jersey cast mate Kathy Wakile and her husband, Richard, are seeing all the sights... including Bravo's Top Chef Season 15 finalist Joseph Sasto's restaurant, Cal Mare.

How to Watch

Watch Top Chef Season 21 Wednesdays at 9/8c on Bravo and next day on Peacock.

The Wakiles — who own their own pizzeria, Pizza Love, in Jersey — dined at the Italian eatery where Sasto works as executive chef, posing for an Instagram photo with the Top Chef alum (and his famous mustache). "A taste of Amalfi in L.A.," Kathy captioned her 'gram. "Thank you for such a delicious meal." Sadly, she didn't post photos of her meal, but after watching Sasto battle his way through Bravo's Top Chef, we have a pretty good idea of just how delicious it must've been.

Besides eating food cooked by a fellow Bravo celeb, Kathy has also been doing a bit of press for her just-desserts cookbook, Indulge: Delicious Little Desserts That Keep Life Real Sweet, while out West. And of course, she's giving us lots of incredible reasons for wanderlust with snapshots of L.A.'s most pristine views, including travel moments such as...


When she visited Catalina Island (and likened it to Capri, Italy).



When they went to Nobu in Malibu.

When she admired the Santa Monica sunsets.

"Glorious California sunsets," she wrote.

We only have one note: Take us with you next time, pretty please! Between a Bravo's Top Chef cameo and stunning nature shots, it's a dream vacation, Italian style... no passport required!
