Drew Barrymore — Carb Queen

Monday, July 30, 2012

DREW Barrymore is a self-confessed “carb queen”.

The pregnant actress admits she’s addicted to carbohydrates and dislikes fancy food.

“I’m a carb queen,” she said. “I’ll always order macaroni and cheese, but I don’t want it to be fancy. I want it to be as close to Kraft Services [on set catering] as it can possibly get!

“I love inventive food, but I want the classic dishes to taste like how I remember them. I get a little bummed out when there is too much fancy stuff going on and it doesn’t resemble the original dish at all.

“Somebody, please teach me how to make better chilaquiles. The dish was simultaneously dry and soggy — I somehow accomplished both textures and nothing else.

“I tried adding Cholula hot sauce, Topatio hot sauce, but nothing was helping that sucker!

“I drink tons of tea -black tea Tejava, jasmine tea, UCC, which is an amazing Asian green tea. Tea is my love. It’s my soul mate.”
