I have a newfound respect for Nicole Kidman.
During her recent visit to The Ellen Show, Kidman took part in a cooking segment featuring celebrity chef Giada De Laurentiis. Giada was on to promote the 13th season of Food Network Star and, naturally, she was doing a cooking demo rather than sitting on the couch for a chat. The producers of Ellen managed to wrangle Nicole into playing along with Giada and Ellen in the kitchen to make some artichoke arancini and clementine and fennel focaccia. It’s obvious that Nicole is uncomfortable, but she’s being a good sport about being at the table.
Easy, right? Well, things didn’t get of to a great start and Nicole admitted that cooking gives her anxiety – getting the timing right is just too much. And after literally throwing in the towel, Nicole samples what would have been the end results of her focaccia.
And she spits it out! Apparently, the bread was stale after sitting out for five hours. Way to sell it, Nicole…
But honestly, I get Nicole. Cooking next to master chef Giada would be too much pressure. Watch the entire segment from the beginning and witness everything slowly crumble apart.
