Never cook again with your own personal chef!
Everyone likes to dream about what they’d spend their newfound money on when they win the lottery. Usually the first things that come to mind are big houses, luxury cars, and expensive, endless vacations.
If someone asked me though, I think one of the first things I’d do would be to hire a personal chef.
Think about it: not only do you never have to be stuck wondering what to eat, but you have someone who makes meals exactly how you like it!
If you want to feel famous when you eat, check out LottoExpress‘ list of 7 famous people and the foods their chefs made for them!
1. Michael Jackson: Enchiladas
Michael Jackson was the biggest pop star in history. He was known to be quite eccentric, and his food tastes were no different.
When it came to cooking for the King, Jackson’s personal chef in the 80s (named Mani Niall) recalls how difficult that task could often be.
Niall claimed that although Jackson was “vegetarian”, he “didn’t like vegetables”. This proved quite a challenge!
Eventually, Niall found the perfect cuisine: Mexican food. Dishes like spicy enchiladas became a fixture and the table. Jackson also loved tofu kebabs with Couscous and Moroccan Sauce!

2. Queen Elizabeth II: Sunday Roast
From the King of Pop to the Queen of England, her Majesty has reigned in luxury for over 63 years. Yet she has always been partial to simple, traditional English fare, though sometimes with a twist!.
Owen Hodgson, her former chef, dishes on a secret cooking tip when prepping for the Queen: “When we cooked the Queen’s mushrooms we always added a smidgen of Marmite”. Sounds savoury and oh so English!
Her current chef, Mark Flanagan, claims that Elizabeth, like her subjects, enjoys a Sunday roast after church. Don’t serve her the rare stuff though; she always prefers the well-done end slice!

3. George W. Bush: Cheeseburger Pizza
Across the pond, another head of state was known for modest culinary tastes.
When he took over the Oval Office, U.S. President George W. Bush hired a kitchen team who could pull off his favorite comfort foods.
The First Couple were particularly fond of Tex-Mex, a type of cooking created in their native Texas. Their preferred Sunday meal was Huevos Rancheros (eggs and hot salsa on a tortilla).
But W.’s favorite guilty pleasure? Cheeseburger pizza.
According to White House chef Cristeta Comerford, this unusual dish consisted of a margarita pizza with ground beef, mustard, ketchup, and even sliced pickles on top –all the ingredients of a cheeseburger!

4. Madonna: Macrobiotic Cuisine
Madonna’s long been known for her extravagant and odd lifestyle choices. And food is no exception!
For seven years, she employed Japanese chef Mayuni Nishimura, who travelled the world with Madge cooking healthy “macrobiotic” cuisine.
Macrobiotic cuisine involves eating only whole grains, beans, and vegetables. Nishimura insists that meals always contain fermented foods found locally, no matter where you are. This type of diet is thought to contribute to a longer, healthier life.
While no longer Madonna’s chef, Nishimura continues to promote a macrobiotic diet as a way to live a healthier lifestyle!
