COOK­ING FOR THE ROY­ALS MADE ME NER­VOUS!

Life & Style Weekly - - Inside Hollywood -

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.
