SEATTLE, Washington - Apparently Giada de Laurentiis thinks she's the only person who brings sensuality into the kitchen. In an upcoming interview in the New York Post Sunday magazine, Giada takes a crack at the pride of Seattle, Mario Batali:
I mean, I love Lidia [Bastianich], but [she’s] kind of boring. And Mario Batali [I] love to death... but he’s not romantic or sensual. Those are the things I bring to the table.
Batali is very sensual. In fact, virtually every driven successful chef has a good dose of sensuality to them.
I would suggest Giada head over to Otto and try the Fennel & Bottarga pizza and re-evaluate her comments.
