The Chew: Scott Foley Scandal Cast
Scott Foley, a star of ABC’s smash hit drama Scandal, dropped into The Chew kitchen for an Extra Value Friday special featuring Mario Batali’s Seafood Risotto Recipe.
Foley plays off leading lady Kerry Washington, whom he said he has natural chemistry with. In fact, all the castmates from Scandal get along well, he said, and they hang out together off the set.
Does his wife get jealous of the onscreen love scenes? If anything, Foley said his wife wants to see some of his character’s romantic moves at home.

Venice considers this dish to be an apex of culinary skill, and now you can show off your own skills in the kitchen. Choose fresh, simple ingredients based on what’s available around you whenever and wherever you are preparing this dish. Unlike in most other cases, be sure not to brown the ingredients.
