On holiday with Laeticia Hallyday…

Laetitia Hallyday on the beach

She created quite a sensation when she posed for Lui in very scant attire that was blackboarded in bus shelters all over Paris... Laetitia Hallyday is a buzzing gal... And it’s true that Johnny’s pretty wife goes all out when it comes to fund raising for the construction of a school in Vietnam with her association La Bonne Etoile. A few days before going off on holidays to Saint Bart’s, where she takes along her little family, Laeticia gave us a very intimate “summer interview”!

The first thing you do when you wake up ?

I give a kiss to my children.

A good deed for Summer ?

The dish you like to whip up for Johnny ?

Cacio e Pepe pasta: it’s his favourite dish

Ingredients (4 persons):

400gr of Spaghetti (Garofalo or Barilla v). 75gr of fresh Roman Pecorino. 75gr of Pecorino from Tuscany, refined for at least one year. 50gr of butter. Freshly ground black pepper.

Preparation:

The recipe is certainly Roman, or at least from the region, and while it’s a very modest dish, for me it’s always wonderful to make. Start by boiling a big pot of water. In a large separate bowl, place the two different cheese mixed together and grated of course... The butter, and when the pasta has been cooking for 2 or 3 minutes, take a ladle of cooking water and melt your butter with the cheese. When the pasta is cooked "al dente", drain and mix with your cheese cream, then sprinkle a generous quantity of freshly ground pepper. It’s ready... just enjoy!
