George Clooney and his wife Amal are often brought to tears as they taste the meals prepared by their personal chef.
The Gravity actor and the international civil rights lawyer hired 33-year-old cook Vivianna Frizzi to prepare meals for them in 2013, and the busy parents of two love her food so much they rarely want to eat out anymore.
“(Frizzi) can make anything, including handmade gnocchi with pesto that would make you cry,” George, who divides his time between homes in England and Lake Como, Italy, tells People. “Vivi cooks almost every night for us now because we have the twins. 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.”
The Clooneys’ weekly pizza nights have become legendary and guests love the pies Frizzi bakes, but the couple also enjoys her sushi dishes, risotto, and Lebanese and Indian treats.
Amal and George’s one-year-old twins, Ella and Alexander, aren’t quite as taken by the live-in cook’s food, but Frizzi admits she doesn’t feel pressured to impress the tots.
“The twins are not fussy eaters,” she laughs, revealing salmon, tomato risotto, Margherita pizza, and ricotta with raspberries are always on the menu for the toddlers. “When they like a dish, they put their little fingers on their cheeks, smile and say, Mmm!”
Although Frizzi never disappoints with her creations, she has failed to teach the Clooneys how to cook for themselves.
“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 says.
