Indian-American cookbook author Padma Lakshmi has revealed that she still finds Carl''s Jr. Western Bacon Cheeseburger to be finger-licking delicious.
The ‘Top Chef’ host, who credits the beefy burger for taking her out of her vegetarian world, is teaming up to promote Carl''s Jr. in a steamy commercial.
In the ad, she can be seen chomping on a Carl''s Jr. Western Bacon Cheeseburger, enjoying every bit of the bacon-laden bite, and it is not just for the benefit of the camera’s either.
In her own cookbook ‘Tangy, Tart, Hot and Sweet’, she has revealed her experience with the burger as a teenager.
“The sublimely pleasurable taste of bacon ... was further enhanced by its mingling with the barbeque sauce, greedily licked off as it dripped down my teenage fingers,” the New York Daily News quoted her as writing.
