Drew Barrymore Tells Eric Ripert Why Her Daughter’s Name Is Olive


Actress, producer and ex-wife of Tom Green winemaker Drew Barrymore joined Eric Ripert for an episode of his Reserve Channel video series, On the Table, this week. The new mom helped the French chef prepare her “favorite dish,” clams Montecito–a buttery, shellfish-laden entree named for the uber-weathly Southern California town where the actress has a home. Barrymore also explains that she named her daughter Olive because pregnancy books tend to “compare the size of the baby to a food item” as it grows.
