How to Eat Like a Celebrity Chef on the Road
The Daily Meal caught up with four of the industry's top celebrity chefs at the Atlantic City Food & Wine Festival on July 28 to discover what foods they cannot live without while traveling.
Culinary personalities like Andrew Zimmern, Nadia G., Anne Burrell, and Robert Irvine share their favorite snacks to munch on while away from home.
Between filming television shows, giving interviews, attending media appearances, spending time with family, and, of course, cooking, celebrity chefs spend much of their time eating in transit from one location to the next.
"I travel 330 days a year," said Robert Irvine, host of Restaurant: Impossible.
When on the road, Irvine makes sure he maintains a routine of healthy eating and exercise, choosing foods such as almonds and oatmeal and getting in a workout no matter where he is.
Bitchin' Kitchen star Nadia G., on the other hand, admits that healthy eating is not at the top of her to-do list during her travel-packed work schedule.
"I don't eat healthy when I travel to be honest," said Nadia G., whose favorite travel snack is breakfast sandwiches.
For Andrew Zimmern, host of Bizarre Foods, taking a road trip is not complete without a few slices of pizza bought from a gas station.
Host of Secrets of a Restaurant Chef Anne Burrell's favorite part of riding an airplane is an in-flight drink.
"I'm a huge fan of an airplane bloody mary," said Burrell.
