Why a PINK chef's coat?

Simply put, I carry my Dad's legacy with me through my cookbook, cooking and everyday I am writing my food columns, he is always with me. I carry my Mom with me through a silent reminder of her struggle with breast cancer that took her life, as well as the lives of many other women who have dealt with, and are still dealing with, this horrible affliction. Besides, why not pink? It makes a man look good!

In a medium saucepan, add all broth and orzo. Cook orzo over medium heat until tender, about 5 minutes. Reduce heat to low and ladle out a cup of the orzo  and broth mixture into the egg mixture, stirring to combine and temper. Add all of the egg/orzo mixture into the saucepan containing the orzo and broth, stir well and bring to temperature. When ready to serve, equally divide the fish among 3 bowls and top with equal amounts of Avgolemon Soup. Serve immediately.
