Food Network Host Gets To Be A Kick-Back Caterer

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Catering a wedding can be one of the most stressful jobs around – but there was no stress for Food Network host Giada De Laurentiis when she recently helped cater a New York couple’s dream wedding.

Along with star chefs like Emeril Lagasse and Rachael Ray, De Laurentiis provided recipes to Aaron Lazar and Leann Garris, whose nuptials were filmed for the March 13 special, Food Network Caters Your Wedding.

Even better, De Laurentiis got to go to a spa with the bride- to-be for a manicure and pedicure while other Food Network staffers had to do the dirty work of preparing 27 dishes for 300 people.

De Laurentiis says, “I think I had the best job of all the chefs!”

Although the wedding was no sweat off De Laurentiis’ back, there were some glitches, including a wedding cake that temporarily disappeared and a batch of cupcakes that stuck to the pan.

Luckily, the newlyweds never found out about the caterers’ behind-the-scenes troubles – until now.
