The Special Sandwich Oprah Makes for Stedman

O, The Oprah Magazine

Though Oprah has always been notoriously private about her relationship with longtime love Stedman Graham, the couple clearly doesn't mind getting chatty about one particular topic -- Oprah's cooking.

"Chefs don’t have anything on her," Stedman tells O, The Oprah Magazine about Oprah's skills in the kitchen. "Anything she cooks I really enjoy eating, and I appreciate it very much."

"I'm absolutely an improvisational cook -- a makeshift cook," Oprah explains. "I don't like looking at recipes, and even if I do use one, I will adjust it to whatever feels right to me. It'll be based on what is here, and what is in the garden."

One dish Stedman really appreciates?

Oprah's signature "Love Sandwich" that she first started making just for him!

"It became the Love Sandwich because I first started making it just for Stedman. I've only made it for a couple of other people, so if you've had me make the Love Sandwich for you, you have to be somebody I really care about," she says about her special turkey panini.

But clearly, Stedman is an admirer of more than just his own personal sandwich.

"She makes great pancakes, too. She makes great eggs, she makes great steaks -- I mean, you could go on and on and on. She's just an exceptional cook and an exceptional person," he gushes.
