Nick & Kim fell in love over their passion for a great meal, a fantastic bottle of wine and sharing those experiences with their family and friends. Each products of New Jersey Italian families, they learned about food from watching parents and grandparents cook in the kitchen. Sundays were weekly events, complete with a pot of gravy simmering on the stove, and family members talking loudly throughout the house. This taught them early on that food was a way of bringing people together.
While most people are relaxing on the beach on their honeymoon, Nick & Kim who were still feeling the profound effects of their union that took place days before, began brainstorming about how they could begin to share their passion for food and family with the world. Talking, writing, and documenting their experiences began immediately. In that moment, waist deep in warm Caribbean waters with a cool cocktail in hand in Aruba, Fat, Drunk & Fancy was born.
For Nick & Kim, food is about sharing in each other’s lives, experiencing life to the fullest, rather than just getting through the day. It is the glue that binds us together, the therapist’s couch and the blank canvas of creativity all rolled into one. It’s about learning from the past, through the memories, stories and family recipes, and bringing those lessons into today’s seemingly disconnected world. With that, Nick and Kim invite and welcome those who have an open mind, a sense of adventure, to join them at their kitchen table whether virtually or in person, and share the power of a great meal and conversation. Surrounded by family and friends they promise that you will enjoy a good laugh, be entertained, and be supported so that you may feel balanced, complete and that you too can live fearlessly without regrets.
