Charming, gorgeous, and extremely talented, Giada De Laurentiis is the star of Food Network's Everyday Italian. She has also been seen in the network's All-Star Thanksgiving special with Emeril Lagasse, Rachael Ray, and others; cohosting (with Mario Batali) the Italian Christmas special and a cross-country series; and starring in her own special from Italy.
The reason for all the excitement? Beyond Giada's camera presence, it's her food; quick, simple, and bursting with the ripe, rich flavors that reflect the best of Italian home cooking. Giada is a Cordon Bleu-trained chef who's worked in some of L.A.'s finest restaurants, but she's also not afraid to use shortcuts and the occasional packaged ingredient. She makes it all look easy because it is, with such features as seven ways to transform red sauce, five variations on cutlets, four great uses for prosciutto, and more than 100 other dishes for speedy but special dinners. Filled with gorgeous photographs, this is the debut cookbook from a major new star.
Unfortunately, as much as I like the author/cook and her recipes from her TV show, the recipe printings in the book are difficult to read. The print is very light and doesn't make for easy reading.
Was a little disappointed with the book as it contained more pics of Giada than recipes. I really like Giada's segments on Food Network but expected more recipes. I will keep the book but will inquire more next time of the reviews before buying. I. Brewer Hesperia, CA
I was really disappointed. Guess I was hoping for more pasta or entre recipes.
The recipies are great, delicious and easy to follow. Unfortunately, they chose to print the receipies on colored background with a colored type. Very difficult to read. I would rate this book Best Overall if it the recipies were printed in black and white.
I like her recipes but don't care for the format of the cookbook. It would have been much nicer to have far more pictures of the food and far, far fewer pictures of Giada.

Recipes that call for wine do so to enhance the flavor of the dish- so it's not the time to use that half-opened bottle of red that's been sitting in your fridge for a month. If you wouldn't drink it, then don't cook with it.
