Being George and Amal Clooney's personal chef means not only cooking a mouth-watering menu of international eats but also feeding their adorable one-year-old twins Ella and Alexander. "The twins are not fussy eaters,” award-winning chef Viviana Frizzi told People, adding the cute way they show that they like their meals. “When they like a dish, they put their little fingers on their cheeks, smile and say, Mmm!" The foods that are guaranteed to garner an "mmm"? Margherita pizza, salmon, tomato risotto and ricotta with raspberries.
The 33-year-old has been serving up tasty meals for the Clooney family since 2013, so she's also well aware of George and Amal's favourite dishes. At their weekly pizza night, “George and Amal’s favourite pizza is a margherita with rocket salad,” while they also enjoy a rotation of other Italian dishes like risotto, Lebanese dishes, sushi, Indian dishes and more.
But the Como, Italy native's Italian fare really packs a flavourful punch. "[She] can make anything, including handmade gnocchi with pesto that would make you cry," George gushed to the magazine of "Vivi," who cooks for the growing family almost every night. "Going out isn’t as easy or as interesting as it used to be. Besides all of our friends would rather eat her food than hit up a local restaurant in Como or in London.”
So are the Hollywood star and his barrister wife picking up any tips in the kitchen? "Honestly, Amal and I are such poor chefs that any lesson from Vivi in the kitchen would be like teaching a whale to fly," George joked. And with their two little ones and two high-powered careers, they've hardly got the time to learn.
Another high-profile couple that may have been treated to Vivi's fare is the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, who reportedly visited the Clooneys in Lake Como this summer. George is said to have personally flown the royals out for a reunion following their May nuptials, which George and Amal attended. The ladies spent the days lounging by the pool while the fellows shot hoops, and we're guessing foodie Meghan stole some time in the kitchen with the world class chef to up her game!
