Lady Gaga Gets Cookin'

The eccentric star gives Turkey an Italian twist.

The last time we saw Lady Gaga in the kitchen--in the music video for "Telephone"--she was a vengeful chef, foisting poisoned eggs and bacon upon diner patrons with Beyonce as her accomplice. But this Thanksgiving, viewers may actually want to dine with the world's biggest pop star. The 25-year-old is serving up dishes inspired by her Italian heritage on the ABC special A Very Gaga Thanksgiving. It's a very traditional affair--provided she resists making a turkey dress out of the entree.

The family-friendly act comes as a surprise from the taboo buster (she recently performed on a British show appearing to hold her own decapitated head). Yet Gaga (nee Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta) has always described herself as just another Italian girl from New York. For her feast, Gaga enlisted celebrity chef Art Smith to repurpose old family recipes. The result is a Sicilian pilgrim's dream: gravy splashed with tomato sauce and fried turkey and waffles infused with pecorino, crispy pepperoni, and Italian herbs.
