Giada De Laurentiis »
As you may know, Giada is preparing food at a polo match on July 9th that’s going to be attended by a bunch of Royal British people. Yawn. The media is buzzing about this like she’s off curing AIDS, but I don’t understand the hoopla. Besides, what else is Giada really doing other than raising her beautiful daughter and screaming at men for eating TWO POTATOES?
The Today Show’s food blog, Bites, just ran an interview with Giada about the big event. Aside from sensationalizing it even more, and trying to convince us all it’s a bigger deal than it is, it really made Giada come off as… well… A BITCH.
Please enjoy these tidbits from the Giada interview, and if you are feeling frisky, head over there and read the whole thing:
That’s right. Giada’s not doing all the cooking by herself; she hired a catering company to work with her due to the volume of people attending. Sadly though, these lowly caterers couldn’t hold a candle to Giada’s culinary awesomeness. After several tries, these mere mortals still weren’t able to “master her chicken Milanese” recipe so she was forced to change the main course to veggie lasagna.
Not only did Giada throw her team of caterers under the bus, but the whole implication of “no one is as good as I am” is incredibly douchy.
It also brings up another valid point: if a team of skilled chefs aren’t able to re-create her recipes under her tutelage, what does that say for the rest of us poor saps at home?
Wow. Uh, don’t pat yourself on the back or anything. Is it really that big of a deal? Congratulations, Giada, you’re cooking for a bunch of people you’ve never met. Hopefully the gig will mean you no longer have to succumb to donning plastic eyewear for stupid color commentary pieces on the Food Network.
(Sidebar, and a huge bone of contention for me: Why should a meal for “Royals” or Obama or Brad Pitt be worthy of any more attention or hoopla than a meal for people who aren’t famous? Newsflash: the whole idea of fame is idiotic; they’re just people like we all are).
Years ago, some college kid bought a “short, fat” salami, handed it to Giada, and asked her to sign it. She did.
If you say so, Giada. If you say so.
