LOS ANGELES — Adult film star Mariah Milano has launched a travel and cooking site called DinnerWithaPornStar.com.
The site contains no porn content, but rather it chronicles Milano's extensive trips around the world from Europe to New Zealand and Indonesia. The free site includes Milano hosting cooking segments; she specializes in unique Italian foods such as Pizza Fritta and Drunken Pasta as well as traditional fare such as Prime Rib. In addition, she makes unique dishes such as her own twist on Wontons and Almond Croccante.
"I have eaten in some of the greatest places in the world," said Milano, who started her porn career nine days after her 18th birthday in 1998. "The simplicity is so amazing in things like a piece of fresh bread with goat cheese and honey for breakfast in Provence, France overlooking a vineyard with a cup of cafe la creme. Or a simple bowl of pasta in Verona, Italy."
The new site also has a section devoted to reviews of the hotels and restaurants she has visited as well as video blogs and travel photos.
Milano said that the Food Porn section is particularly notable because it's a collection of pictures of the better meals she has had in restaurants as well some she has made herself.
"The traffic to the site has been incredible" Milano said. "The Alexa ranking in the U.S. is already below 90,000 and there was a mention of it on the Huffington Post which was really cool."
She said that she has moved on from filming hardcore scenes and is now focusing on her new travel and cooking endeavor. Her goal is to get a show on the Travel Channel.
"Anthony Bourdain is someone I really admire ever since I read his book 'Kitchen Confidential' in one sitting on a flight from LA to Barcelona," she said. "His shows are awesome and his narration is so on the money and witty and honest. I really feel I could have a hit show. I'm crazy and wild and love to have fun. I don't take shit from anyone and have never had a problem speaking my mind. I am Sicilian!"
Milano is represented by LA Direct Models for event hosting and appearances.
