By now you know that I won the Gumbo battle with Henri Alen and Nicolas Thieulon on their Finnish cooking show, “American Food Battle.” We blindfolded Ronn who was the judge and picked out my Gumbo instantly.  I taught these Finnish boys a thing or two they didn’t know about making a roux the non-traditional way that they left America very confused.

Devin's Kickass Cajun Seasoning my secret weapon

It’s funny because Henri Alen owns the best French restaurant in Finland, “Muru” and was so impressed that he now wants to do a cooking show with me and Ronn, where we would cook with celebrities in Los Angeles and Finland. I think it’s just an excuse to figure out all of my secrets in the kitchen and to have Player perform “Man On Fire” which is his theme song in the kitchen there. Devin’s Kickass Cajun Seasoning was my secret weapon and the Finns now want to carry it in some of their restaurants.
American Food Battle

Devin, Nicolas & Henri

America Food Battle is seen in 50 countries, but not in America so I can only give you a clip and some photos, but we are hoping to have our new cooking show seen here in America. Henri Alen is an amazing Chef and I’d be proud to work with him anywhere. Nicolas is French and knows so much about wines that hanging out with him could only spell fun!

I love Finland and cooking is so natural for me that who am I to say no to this proposal? Seems like having my own cooking show is my destiny and I now have South Africa wanting me to guest spot on their top rated cooking show as there is a mini Player tour among other things in the works for South Africa and Australia.

Ronn picking the winner

It’s safe to say we won’t be home much and lots of traveling is in our future, so renewing our passports now is a must for us. I have some other exciting things to share with you guys next month that I know you will flip over, but in the meantime, know that we are coming to the following countries, Australia, Finland, South Africa, The Netherlands, Sweden and Italy this year! Oh and talk about the luck of the Irish, happy St. Patty’s Day!



Most people know me as Playboy's Miss June 1985. I also won $100,000 on the TV talent show "Star Search" as their Spokesmodel Champion in 1986, have been featured in movies such as, Disney's "Can't Buy Me Love", A Low Down Dirty Shame, House 2, Society and Andy Sidaris' "Guns", currently I have a Cajun spice called, "Devin's Kickass Cajun Seasoning" especially created to help the great city of New Orleans rebuild from the devastation of Hurricane Katrina. I just authored a book featuring an exclusive interview with pinup legend Bettie Page entitled, "The Naked Truth About A Pinup Model"
