Lifestyle Food Nicole Kidman Serves Giada De Laurentiis Some Hilarious Criticism on Her Cooking Giada De Laurentiis's cooking was no match for Nicole Kidman during a segment on The Ellen DeGeneres Show By Jessica Fecteau Published on May 10, 2017 01:00 PM Share Tweet Pin Email Giada De Laurentiis may have written countless cookbooks, hosted several TV shows and charmed Americans everywhere with her Italian cuisine, but she was no match for actress Nicole Kidman on Wednesday. While filming a cooking segment on the Ellen DeGeneres show, Kidman joined De Laurentiis and DeGeneres to make artichoke arancini and focaccia with clementines and fennel. The hilarious trio laughed the whole way through each step of making the recipe, but the focaccia that had been pre-made to show the finished product was not a crowd pleaser. DeGeneres went in for the first bite and it looked like it took some work for her to tear it off, which caused her (and the audience) to immediately start laughing. She dramatically tried to chew the focaccia, showing how hard it was. “That sure is good,” she says in a sarcastic tone.
