Each year we like to pretend we actually live in the Kips Bay Show House (though don’t try taking a bath; they don’t like that so much) and this year they up the ante with a kitchen designed by culinary force-of-nature Daniel Boulud, who somehow found time between Top Chef tapings and opening restaurants in exotic locales like Vegas, China and the Upper West Side. Proceeds from the Show House go toward the Boys & Girls Club, but what we’d really like is for Mr. Bouloud to make us dinner while we relax in our Kips Bay Show House! Instead, we’ll probably drown thoughts about our own paltry cookware in a sack of Twizzlers and the Helen Hunt flick Then She Found Me, which features the most promising cast we’ve seen in a while: Ms. Hunt, Bette Midler, Colin Firth, Matthew Broderick, and Salman Rushdie. (Take that, Padma!)
