Actor Sean Kanan who stars as bad boy, Deacon Sharpe on "The Young & The Restless" stopped by to share some tips and a recipe from his first book The Modern Gentleman: Cooking & Entertaining With Sean Kanan. He has a book signing at The Drama Book Shop on Thursday, September 15th from 6 to 8pm (@250 West 40th Street). He showed us how to make Sea Food Medley.

He is part of their Glass Leadership Institute and this year he traveled to Washington with them for their Conference on Bullying. He also Lobbied a Member of Congress to encourage him to create more Anti-Bullying Legislation. He did an internet PSA for the ADL.
