The Emmy-winning chef wowed the crowd including the film's famed director Ryan Murphy and producer Dede Gardner with his ultra passionate pizza making skills and love for all things Italian. For the evening's festivities, Chef Chiarello created a sumptuous menu taken directly from the yet-to-be released Eat Pray Love film's Rome dining scene, plus a one of a kind magnificent gelato ice sculpture.
