10 Fun Facts About Danica Patrick

7. She’s A Foodie

Most pro athletes can easily afford to hire a personal chef to do all their cooking for them – after all, they’re busy and have training regimes that require a big time commitment. However, Patrick isn’t about to be kicked out of her own kitchen.

The self-confessed foodie has honed her skills in the kitchen by taking classes at The Culinary Institute of America at Greystone in St. Helena, California. And, if that weren’t enough, she has also appeared on the Food Network show Chopped alongside other pro athletes including Tiki Barber and Natalie Coughlin – and she won!

So, if you’re ever invited to dinner at the Patrick household, we’re betting you’re probably going to get a delicious meal – who knows, maybe she’ll even make you her famous truffle oil mashed potatoes!

Once she retires from the racing world, Patrick should explore her foodie side – goodness knows she can definitely take the heat in the kitchen after hurtling down the race track at top speed for years on end.
