Giada De Laurentiis Gave Prince William Some Culinary Advice - Kitchen Heroes

Giada De Laurentiis Gave Prince William Some Culinary Advice - Kitchen Heroes
From The Kitchn - October 11, 2017

British royals are Food Network fans, just like the rest of us. Except that when they have cooking problems, they get to go right to their favorite chefs and ask for help in person. So when Prince William needed help making lasagna, he went right to Giada De Laurentiis and asked her to tell him what he was doing wrongand he absolutely made her day when he did it.

De Laurentiis cooked for Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge, formerly known as Kate Middleton, at the Foundation Polo Challenge in Santa Barbara, CA, in 2011.

De Laurentiis has been on TV since 2003 and has three Emmy Awards and eight booksbut even with all her success, she says cooking for the then-newlyweds was a career highlight for her: "I was floored when they gave it to me," she told PopSugar. "There's been a lot of things that I have done, and in my work life, it's probably one of my highlights."

It was a lucky meeting for Prince William, too, because he'd been having some trouble in the kitchen. He had tried to make lasagna to impress his wife, but it turned out he was terrible at it. (Maybe because the Queen does not allow garlic at Buckingham Palace.) When he met De Laurentiis, he asked her what was the key to a great lasagna.
