Watch All on the Line with Joe Zee, Fridays at 9:30pm.
From NBC San Diego:
A week before the season premiere of his show “All on the Line,” the dashing and always gracious Joe Zee took some time out of his busy schedule to talk to us about food, fashion… and well, more food. As creative director at Elle magazine and now host of his own show, our favorite fashion guy is always on the go, but still has time to fit in his favorite shopping spots and restaurants on both coasts. Find out how Mr. Zee spends his time outside of his kushy midtown office. And, don’t think we let him go without getting just a few style tips.

You’re a busy busy man – how’s life these days? How do you juggle it all?

Have you enjoyed the Hearst cafeteria sushi station in your new digs yet? (And, by the way, have you noticed that all the mirrors in the Hearst Tower make you look great!?)
My first lunch before we even merged with Hearst was with my friend Annebet, an editor from Seventeen magazine and we indulged at the sushi station and it was amazing. In fact, I remember tweeting my lunch experience and a fellow tweeter even wrote back suggesting I…

No more Mr. Nice Guy: A sneak peek at Joe Zee’s first episode of All on the Line

All on the Line with Joe, season 2 premieres Friday, November 25th at 9:30pm.
From NBC’s ThreadNY:
Fashion doesn’t always have a fairytale ending – a point being emphasized on the second season of Elle creative director Joe Zee’s All On The Line, premiering on the Sundance Channel November 25th. On each episode Zee works with one designer to help get their businesses back on track. In the premiere episode, Zee is tasked with counseling Angelo Lambrou – an East Village-based designer who has found success in the bridal market but has struggled to create a viable ready-to-wear business.

Zee tells us, “I want people to realize how hard everybody has to work to make it. That’s what’s really exciting about this show…

“Joe Zee Talks ELLE, Says Snooki Will Never Land Cover”

These days you can’t go anywhere without seeing or hearing about the cast of “Jersey Shore.” But one place you won’t see Snooki is on the cover of Elle magazine.

“I don’t know about Snooki. I’m going to have to pass on that one,” the creative director Joe Zee told me when I asked him if reality stars would ever grace his coveted cover. “We put Lauren Conrad on the cover of our anniversary issue and she did very well. Listen, Kim [Kardashian] is a big cover star out there and if Kim had something going on in her life right now — Kim’s very quiet — I just wish that she would do something, but she’s not doing anything.

More savory wit from our featured food blogger Diana Hossfeld, who writes the food blog Diana Takes a Bite.
The first time I ate foie gras was two years ago at Ludo Bites in Los Angeles. I hated it. The muddy-colored lobe had been chopped into thumb-sized chunks and surreptitiously slipped into a miso soup with rhubarb, hibiscus and beets. I didn’t understand it – I didn’t want to understand it. I just wanted it to go away. And I wanted to replace it with things I was used to ingesting in my miso soup – tofu, seaweed, shiitake mushrooms – not foie gras.
