Prince William and Catherine Middleton are gearing up to pay LA a visit (it's Kate's first time!), and they are going to have a special menu prepared exclusively for them by one of Beverly Hills' best chefs!

LA native and seasoned celebrity chef Giada De Laurentiis, is hard at work on a custom-created menu fit for the Royal newlyweds!

The dinner will take place at the Santa Barbara Polo and Racquet Club on July 9 for a charity match, and an example of some of the dishes prepared include:

- A “light and colorful” pea pesto crostini, featuring pureed peas on toast, topped with half a cherry tomato

- California chopped salad with a mix of grilled lettuces, grilled corn, grilled shrimp, zucchini and crispy tortillas in a light lemon dressing

- Chicken Milanese, which features breaded chicken cutlets in a creamy tomato fennel sauce

Giada says these dishes are inspired by a combination of California's fresh fare, and her own Italian heritage.

William is set to participate in a match at the Santa Barbara Polo Club to benefit the American Friends of the Foundation of Prince William and Prince Harry.
