The Store-Bought Frozen Snack Andrew Zimmern Always Keeps In Stock
By Kelly Douglas
If you follow the buzz on the most prominent celebrity chefs, you might realize that, sometimes, their taste in food is far simpler than you anticipated, and Andrew Zimmern is no exception to the rule. It may be hard to picture Zimmern casually cruising through the frozen food aisle of your local supermarket, but that's exactly where he finds one of his favorite snacks.
Zimmerman's snack of choice is Totino's Pizza Rolls, a microwaveable classic that he prefers to savor in a specific way. Zimmern noted in an interview that because "there's never sauce in the pizza rolls," he likes to freeze two-to-three-ounce portions of marinara sauce and defrost them whenever he makes pizza rolls.
Although the pizza rolls are billed as containing tomato sauce, the uneven sauce distribution is enough to ruffle some feathers — even for non-chefs. Zimmern's solution to this common pizza roll problem is to "get them in sauce," and the idea sounds like a great one for pizza roll and marinara fans to put into practice.
