COOKING FOR THE ROYALS MADE ME NERVOUS!
Food Network star chef Giada De Laurentiis has seen (and cooked) it all, but she got rattled when she was preparing a meal for Prince William and Kate Middleton at a charity event back in 2011. “I was so nervous,” Giada, 47, told Life & Style at her Las Vegas restaurant Giada on Oct. 11. Giada says she was advised by security not to make eye contact with William, which threw her off. “When you’re serving [them] food and [William is] asking you a question, all I can think is, ‘You’re not supposed to look at him so I guess I’ll look over here,’” she recalls. “It’s one of those awkward moments in your life. You get so nervous!”
Making lasagna for William and Kate proved a nerve-wracking task for Giada. “I was thinking, ‘I just want to get out of here!’ ” she tells Life & Style.
