Provisions by Padma
Padma Lakshmi has been busy in the kitchen again. The former model and Top Chef host has become a mainstay in the food industry whether it’s her aforementioned role on Bravo’s cooking competition series, cookbook author or even her sultry and seductive Carl’s Jr. television commercial. Now you can find her chillin’ with Costco in a partnership to unveil a new line of frozen dishes.
Lakshmi’s first available fare is “Padma’s Easy Exotoc Spanish Paella” with three other courses headed our way including a rice and lentil entrée and organic rice sides. The paella, a colorful presentation comprised of Italian rice, red and green pepper, garlic, saffron, fire-roasted tomatoes, peas, shrimp, chicken and chorizo, is a take on the classic Valencian favorite and was inspired by Lakshmi’s time living in Spain.
“I first had this festive and delicious Iberian specialty when I was living and writing about food there years ago,” Lakshmi said in a release for her new food products. “Since then, it’s remained one of my favorites.”
Padma’s flavors are currently featured only in Los Angeles stores, launching nationwide later in the year.
