The Fast Food Restaurant Giada De Laurentiis Can't Turn Down
Although master chefs can cook any delicious meal they want, they still gravitate toward fast food every once in a while. Like Gordon Ramsay with In-N-Out’s Animal Style Burger and Andrew Zimmern’s love for Culver’s french fries, Giada De Laurentiis’ favorite fast food is another esteemed burger brand.
While promoting her cookbook “Happy Cooking,” De Laurentiis answered in an interview with Williams Sonoma if she ever has cravings for fast food: “Yep ... I can’t resist french fries from McDonald’s!” However, De Laurentiis typically opts for foods with more nutritional value than the fast food chain’s french fries.
According to De Laurentiis, she enjoys a carb-heavy, savory breakfast, like “brown rice with olive oil and salt,” a healthy salad with grilled chicken for lunch, and whatever she desires for her dinner. She also occasionally dips Milano cookies or Nilla wafers into lemonade as a snack.
