Nate can design a beautiful kitchen, but when it comes to actually cooking , he needs a little help. "Nate doesn't know how to boil water," Oprah says.
Food Network star Giada De Laurentiis to the rescue! The host of the TV show Everyday Italian , Giada is the author of three best-selling cookbooks, including Everyday Pasta .
To prepare Nate for holiday get-togethers, Giada teaches him to make three of her delicious recipes. Now Nate can create crostini with gorgonzola, honey and walnuts, panini with chocolate and brie, and fried ravioli served with marinara sauce. "I serve it on a plate, and [you] dip and pop it into your mouth. Should I show you how to do that part?" Giada says.
"I've got that part. That part's easy!" Nate says.
