Paris Hilton Instagram post showing her “little bit of everything” room service meal she ordered in Shanghai last November.

What if you decided to eat only the most expensive dishes all day long. Would you try an exquisite Anqui Pho soup in Santa Monica? Or maybe a $1000 salad by a celebrity chef Raymond Blanc? Our friend David Adelman over at Finances online did a fun experiment and compared the prices for various most expensive dishes in the world.

What was so delicous that it sold for $330,000 at an auction? What is the most expensive spice in the world? How much can a slice of 1937 royal wedding cake cost? Caviar in 24-Karat tins, sushi wrapped in 24-Karat gold leaves, truffle salad, and ‘bacon bling’ — these are just some of the outrageously expensive meals you can encounter in the culinary world and he’s gathered them all in an awesome infographic.

The Most Expensive Dishes In The World: How To Plan The Pricest Meal Ever

Holy Hard Rock! Look What’s On The New Menu

by Tracey Paleo, Gia On The Move

Hard Rock Cafe Legendary Burger


While it’s true that the menu changed earlier this year; and that Gia On The Move was recently invited to sample the new mouth-watering fare at a special press dinner; and that Hard Rock Cafes everywhere have made the upgrade; what simply hasn’t been apparent until now, is WHY you should actually make a point of trying it!

Regular patrons of Hard Rock Cafe Hollywood and Hard Rock Universal City will have already been privy to the incredibly and surprisingly succulent re-arrangement of appetizers to final courses which have catapulted deceptively ordinary fare to far beyond “du jour” near shock and awe status and into the stratosphere of outstanding yet down to earth comestibles.  Celebrating its unique rock n’ roll atmosphere, in bold style,  this menu is all about the taste!

Hard Rock Cafe's Nachopalooza!

Hard Rock Cafe’s Nachopalooza!

The 40 year old Hard Rock brand is now offering 30 new items in addition to the current 28 already enjoyed by dedicated diners, including salads, desserts, entrees and drinks after having compared seasonings, textures, flavor profiles, burger blends and French fry cuts, also focusing on visual appeal of each course. Everything down to the garnishes and buns has been utterly re-invented with seasonal options being added as well.

Hard Rock Cafe's Air Mexico Margaritas

Hard Rock Cafe’s Air Mexico Margaritas

All the new items keep in line with Hard Rock’s core menu concept of scratch-based, all-American favorites that resonate with diners around the world.

Popular new menu items added are entrees like the Cowboy Rib eye, a USDA choice 16-ounce, bone-in steak and Smoked Beef Brisket Sandwich, slow-cooked beef brisket, topped with hickory barbecue sauce on grilled sourdough bread, Yukon Gold Mashed Potatoes (a favorite of everyone’s), three new salads (Grilled Chicken Chop Salad, Grilled Chicken Arugula Salad, Cobb Salad) and three of the new desserts (House-made Carrot Cake, Molten Lava Cake and Cheesecake with Oreo Cookie Pieces), Hickory Smoked BBQ Ribs, Grilled Norwegian Salmon, Hickory Smoked Chicken Wings, and the Legendary® Burger, an 8-ounce grilled-to-perfection proprietary blend patty served with cheddar cheese, smoked bacon slices, iceberg lettuce and special Hard Rock seasoning presented on a fresh Brioche bun.  In addition, introduced is the Grilled Vegetable Sandwich, which combines freshly grilled vegetables, spicy Monterey Jack cheese, with a dash of Balsamic reduction on toasted sour dough bread.

There are quite a few drink highlights as well:

The Air Mexico, a sampling-sized portion of Hard Rock’s classic tasty margaritas, allows guests to choose three flavors, including Watermelon, Mango, Cucumber, Blue Curacao, Pomegranate or Wildberry.

Hard Rock Cafe's Twisted Shout Shake

The Red Berry Press, Hard Rock’s unique, sweet fruit cocktail made with fresh hulled and sliced strawberries, fresh raspberries, lemonade, lemon-lime soda, and Clementine Vodka, garnished with a lemon wedge served in a coffee-press style vessel that infuses fruit into the cocktail throughout the drinking process.

And 2 coup de gras finals:

A Bacon, Baccardi, Guinness Beer (Twisted Shout) Milk Shake  with spiced brown sugar, salted caramel and chocolate. (This one sent Gia On The Move “over the edge” – Died and gone to heaven. Thank you!)

The Salted Caramel Cafe, Tia Maria, Baileys, Salted Caramel Syrup, half and half, and hot coffee, topped with whipped cream and pieces of caramel corn caramel sauce.

Hard Rock is introducing several new non-alcoholic milkshakes, including the Vanilla Root Beer Shake, blended with rum, spiced brown sugar syrup, vanilla vodka, half and half, vanilla ice cream, blended with a few ounces of root beer, garnished with a dollop of whipped cream.

Sunday Extra: Who Wants a Beer?

price-of-beerOf all the Beer consuming countries in the world would you believe the United States isn’t the highest on the list for “hitting the bottle?”  In fact, we’re only #14 when it comes to drinking and practically don’t even rank when it comes to spending.  What gives?

Maybe it’s the price you’re paying. Beer can be dirt cheap in some corners of the planet. On the other hand, if you’re German, for instance, and part of the third heaviest beer drinkers in the world group, you’re probably shelling out $235 per year on alcohol. If you live in the Middle East, where it’s mostly banned, you are paying a lot more than that!

Do you know what’s the world’s cheapest beer? How about the most expensive? Check out this fun infographic sent to us by David Adelman at Finances Online that sort of breaks it down:

By Order of the President: It’s National Ice Cream Month


National Ice Cream Month and National Ice Cream Day
July 9, 1984

By the President of the United States of America

Proclamation 5219

Ice cream is a nutritious and wholesome food, enjoyed by over ninety percent of the people in the United States. It enjoys a reputation as the perfect dessert and snack food. Over eight hundred and eighty-seven million gallons of ice cream were consumed in the United States in 1983.

The ice cream industry generates approximately $3.5 billion in annual sales and provides jobs for thousands of citizens. Indeed, nearly ten percent of all the milk produced by the United States dairy farmers is used to produce ice cream, thereby contributing substantially to the economic well-being of the Nation’s dairy industry.

The Congress, by Senate Joint Resolution 298, has designated July 1984 as “National Ice Cream Month,” and July 15, 1984, as “National Ice Cream Day,” and authorized and requested the President to issue a proclamation in observance of these events.

Now, Therefore, I, Ronald Reagan, President of the United States of America, do hereby proclaim July 1984 as National Ice Cream Month and July 15, 1984, as National Ice Cream Day, and I call upon the people of the United States to observe these events with appropriate ceremonies and activities.

In Witness Whereof I have hereunto set my hand this ninth day of July, in the year of our Lord nineteen hundred and eightyfour, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and ninth.

June 8 is National Jelly-Filled Doughnut Day

June 8 is National Jelly-Filled Doughnut Day.

Jelly Donut

Editor John-Bryan Foodie Supreme at shared this awesome holiday this morning.  Now, while we are all a lot more health conscious these days, Jelly Filled donuts sound pretty darn delicious for Sunday; maybe with a favorite coffee –  iced instead of hot, or your favorite tea.  Either way, I think this is one food holiday that Gia On The Move is going to be celebrating!

Jelly-filled doughnut, or jelly doughnut,

is originated from Germany .

The world largest jelly doughnut is made in 1993 and weighed 1.7 tons!

Did you know…

  1. The donut or doughnut is a deep-fried piece of dough or batter. It comes from the Dutch origin of olykoeck or “oily cake”. The two most common types of donuts are the flattened sphere (you know…the ones that are injected with jelly or custard) and the ring donut.
  2.  Internationally, Dunkin’ Donuts has over 1700 locations in 29 countries and over 6,000 stores in 30 countries world-wide! In the U.S. there are over 4,400 locations across 36 states.
  3. Krispy Kreme is probably best known for their fresh, hot, glazed, yeast-raised doughnuts. The company’s “Hot Doughnuts Now” flashing sign is an integral part of the brands appeal and fame.
  4.  Jelly-filled and Chocolate frosted also rank as their top sellers. Coconut Crunch, although not a number one seller, still remains one of the over 52 varieties of donuts the chain produces on a yearly basis.
  5. Americans consume 10 billion doughnuts annually. It really is too big of a number when you consider that as of 1997, there were 6,792 doughnut shops in the U.S. alone. In 2005, I can only imagine that the number of doughnut shops has increased dramatically. Unfortunately, 1997 was the last year that all overall statistics and data is available on this subject (or at least that I can find!).

Bono sings for Mario Batali’s Supper

Chef Mario Batali wants to cook you the #BestMealEver…and Bono wants to sing for his supper…


In the greatest culinary  journey to date, Bono makes a rare appearance on Instagram to promote Mario Batali’s cooking lesson on – part of (RED)’s EAT (RED). DRINK (RED) to SAVE LIVES for an AIDS free generation.

Check it out:

In short, Mario’s helping to raise a lot of dough for a cause that’s very dear to his heart – a cause that he calls one of the greatest challenges of our time – the fight against AIDS.  So, Mario and are offering one lucky foodie the chance to see their culinary dreams come true. And making the contest truly sweet is that each $10 ticket entry helps fight AIDS and save lives by helping to provide HIV+ pregnant women access to the lifesaving medication they heed to ensure that their children are born HIV free.

The contest is part of this June’s EAT (RED) DRINK (RED) SAVE LIVES campaign to #86AIDS, spearheaded by Mario Batali.  The term “86″ is food industry lingo for something no longer being available.  It’s ‘nixed’!  And that is what Mario, Omaze and a team of some of the biggest names in food are working for on the anniversary month of June in which AIDS was discovered 33 years ago – to help ‘86 AIDS’.

From June 1- June 10th, hundreds of restaurants, food trucks, bars and food markets worldwide are adding a (RED) item to their menus and making donations to the Global Fund to fight AIDS.  Learn more about the campaign at RED.ORG.

Singing to promote a supper experience like no other, the video promotes a once-in-a-lifetime cooking experience with Mario Batali, currently running as part of a competition on

For ten dollars, anyone can enter, with proceeds going to fight AIDS. The randomly chosen winner will be flown to New York to cook, and eat, with Mario Batali.  Mario in turn released a new video in which he marvels at the delicious details of the experience.

Fangalicious Summer Eating

Humus egg sammy

I woke up hungry this morning. Starving actually.  And then I remembered there was a way to satisfy my taste buds and my belly for every craving I had via up and coming culinary healthy food expert, Chef Kathy Fang who recently reached out with some very toothsome ideas.  Of course, it’s bikini season and I personally am not ready to “kiss off” 6 months of workouts for one sloppy calorie & carb loaded meal; which is why these are perfect.  Easy to prepare and totally scrumptious…and yes…you can try them at home. In fact, you should!

Summer is here and you know what that means – outdoor entertaining, lighter eating, salads, smoothies, ice blending and grilling everything in sight. Kathy’s passion for food and experimenting in the kitchen has resulted in healthful, balanced takes on everyone’s favorite recipes without having to suffer any loss of flavor.  She’s been enlivening the San Francisco food scene at her family owned Fang Restaurant establishing herself as a culinary force and personality in one of the most competitive food scenes in the world, and her mouthwatering blog, is a “to salivate over” foodie heaven montage.



We love Kathy here at Gia On The Move for not only sharing recipes and ingredient ideas, but also providing tips for exercise and activities that promote a healthy lifestyle.

Here are her Top 5 Summer Fare and Entertaining Tips:



  1. Best Foods for Summer Cooking

  •           Fruit – Stone fruits like nectarines, peaches and plums in salads or grilled and tossed over salads or proteins.
  •           Vegetables – Lentils & quinoa. These hearty legumes and grains are a perfect base for cold dishes or warmed up and served alongside grilled seafood. They’re especially tasty lightly dressed with high quality olive oil, fresh lemon juice, and fresh herbs.
  •           Seafood – Think prawns, crab, light flavored fishes, scallops (branzino, dover sole, sand dabs). Grilling or steaming these proteins creates a flavorful and healthy main dish.
  1. Tips & Tricks that Make Summer Entertaining Easy

  •           Cold Dishes – Any cold dish can be made the night before, creating less work and time in the kitchen the day of your celebration.
  •           Casual & Build Your Own - People tend to enjoy wonderful weather over a family-style meal, where each person dishes up his or her own plate. By building your own tacos, gyros and salads or grilling your own meats, vegetables, fruits and providing fun accoutrements like assorted nuts, candied nuts, dried fruits or healthy seeds like flax, chia or even toasted quinoa, everyone is presented with a wide variety of choices and a fun, interactive dining experience.
  •           Cheese and Meat Plates - These are huge hits if you get creative and put some thought to it. Rather than the usual cheese boards with salami and brie, go to a cheese shop and find unique cheeses of all sorts. Find interesting charcuterie, some that you may not have even tried. Turn it into a night of discovery. Compare French cheeses to Italian to Spanish, etc. Buy some amazing baked goods and breads and warm them up to serve alongside wine pairings.

                 3. Best Dips

  •          Hummus made with garbanzo or edamame with crudité
  •            Cooling Mint/ Dill in sour cream with pita chips
  •            Avocado Egg salad with rice crackers
  •            Smoked Salmon with whipped lemon cream cheese and    potato crisps
  •            Tuna Poke Dips with rice crackers
  1. Perfect Picnic Dish

  •            Mason Jar Salads: Simply layer the following and served different dressings on the side. Friends can dress as they’d like and shake it up!
  •            Fruit – fresh raspberries or grapefruit; dried clementine’s or dried apples (rather than the typical cranberry or raisin)
  •            Seeds – pumpkin seeds, slivered almonds, flax seeds, puffed quinoa
  •           Veggies – cucumber, jicama or fennel, bean sprouts
  •            Dressing – Light, refreshing dressings with fresh ginger, citrus and soy
  •            Shrimp - bring pre-boiled, cooled shrimp to dip in a miso dip with scallions rather than cocktail sauce
  •            Cold sesame noodles – Make the night before and add sauce
  •            Duck salad with Thai basil, ginger, green onions, bean sprouts and peanuts
  1. Best Summer Wine Pairings

  •            Rosé - Domaines Ott, Rosé. It’s slightly minerally and crisp with a soft hint of fruit in it.
  •            Riesling - A great summer wine that goes well with food that has a little spice to it.
