Here's the First Thing Padma Lakshmi Ate When She Landed in Italy for a Foodie Vacation

Bravo's Top Chef host Padma Lakshmi didn't mess around.

What’d Padma Think of Mario Batali's Apology?

Just after eating foie gras macarons in New York, Padma Lakshmi touched down for a fab vacation in Italy. And what's the first scrumptious grub she tucked into when she landed? Apropos of a famous foodie with execellent culinary judgement, the host of Bravo's Top Chef went right for the world's best pizza. (With apologies to NYC.)

How to Watch

Indeed, while Padma's taking a load off in the land of superior carbohydrates, she's hitting wood-fired ovens like a champ. In a July 31 Instagram post, the famous foodie shared a series of snaps from her first day in the Italian city. "Had some bomb [pizza emoji]" she shared to caption photos of said snack — which, yes, looks bomb.

In one clip, "Sexual Healing" plays in the background as chefs drizzle olive oil over a freshly baked pizza. Erotic!

Next, followers get a close-up view of said pies. And in the next photo, Padma poses with the very people who prepared the classically Italian meal: the chefs of 50 Kalò Pizzeria. (Bow down!) 

Scroll through to take a look at the cheese-drenched footage, and just try to resist ordering out for pizza on the spot: 

Buon appetito!
