Jason Bateman Is A Goofy Dad

Jason Bateman and his 3-year-old daughter Francesca - one of Hollywood's cutest father-daughter pairs - spend quality time together over tea parties.

The 41-year-old star of The Switch tells Hello! Canada that despite his high profile career, he and his wife Amanda Anka and their beautiful girl are actually homebodies.

"I'm 90. I will be in my pyjamas literally in 30 minutes. Truly. That's not a joke. We're quite old. We love our house. Our kid doesn't really like to drink or dance yet so we stay home, play a lot of games and watch TV and run around and be goofy."

What kind of games? "Tea parties," Jason reveals, adding, "My daughter loves it when I put a doll of hers on anything at any height and then balance her in such a way so that in three or four seconds it will fall off and hit the ground. I Hope that's not a signof things to come, but right now, it makes her laugh. I just try to find dumb things like that."

Celebrity chef upsets viewers with his cat casserole

BEPPE_185x360_685781a

A top Italian food writer has been suspended indefinitely from the country’s version of the television programme Ready Steady Cook for recommending stewed cat to viewers as a “succulent dish”.

RAI, the public broadcasting network, said that it had dropped Beppe Bigazzi, 77, for offering the recipe on La Prova del Cuoco, which is broadcast at midday on the main channel. Its switchboard was inundated with complaints from viewers and animal rights groups. Bigazzi said that casserole of cat was a famous dish in his home region of Valdarno, Tuscany.

“I’ve eaten it myself and it’s a lot better than many other animals,” he told viewers. “Better than chicken, rabbit or pigeon.” He said that for optimum flavour the meat should be “soaked in spring water for three days” before being stewed.

Elisa Isoardi, the programme’s presenter — who has a cat called Othello — tried to steer Bigazzi off the subject. Reports said that during the commercial break she and the show’s producers tried to persuade him to apologise to viewers but he refused.

Carla Rocchi, the head of ENPA, the Italian society for the protection of animals, said that killing cats was illegal. Francesca Martini, the Deputy Health Minister, said it was “absolutely unheard of for a public service broadcaster to tell people how delicious cats are to eat”. She called for the producers to be investigated for criminal offences involving incitement to mistreat animals.

Bigazzi, a consumer affairs journalist and author of Cooking with Common Sense, has been one of the stars of La Prova del Cuoco for the past ten years. He is noted for his exuberant style and previously caused uproar by boiling lobsters live on the show. Yesterday he said that he had only been joking about the recipe, and he had been misunderstood.

He added: “Mind you, I wasn’t joking all that much. In the 1930s and 1940s, when I was a boy, people certainly did eat cat

in the countryside around Arezzo.” Food historians said that Italians in cities such as Vicenza devised cat recipes in times of economic hardship. Inhabitants of Vicenza are still nicknamed magnagati (cat eaters), and in some butchers’ shops rabbits are sold with their heads to assure buyers that they are not cats.
