Giada De Laurentiis Cooking for William & Kate

Everyone’s favorite Natalie Portman Bratz doll, Giada De Laurentiis, has revealed the menu she will present to William and Kate.

De Laurentiis announced on Friday’s Today show that she will be cooking for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge during their visit to the States. And she already has her outfit planned: “I’m thinking modern-day Pretty Woman.”

The royal couple will begin their Los Angeles vacation on July 8, and the next day, they will head to the Santa Barbara Polo and Racquet Club for a charity match. Kate, along with 2,500 people, will watch William participate. Giada will be cooking for the event.

“I had no idea the Royal Couple would be attending”, the culinary artist said. “And when I finally found out, it was actually kind of a bummer. I couldn’t tell anyone—I had to keep it hush-hush until their California itinerary was released!”

So what’s on the royal menu?

Pea Pesto Crostini: Pureed peas on toast, topped with half a cherry tomato.

California chopped salad: grilled lettuces, corn, shrimp, zucchini and tortillas with a light lemon dressing.

Chicken Milanese: Breaded chicken culets in a creamy tomato fennel sauce.

De Laurentiis, along with her pals, is excited about her royal connection. “They are all extremely ecstatic for me.”
