She’s taught us every facet of Italian cooking--from traditional and regional to seasonal and contemporary. She even made us fall in love with pasta again by opening us up to lighter, healthier versions that don’t weigh us down. Now the Food Network star and bestselling author of Everyday Pasta, Giada De Laurentiis, takes us down a new path, sharing her love of food with clean, vibrant, simple flavors and bursts of bright colors that look as beautiful on the plate as they are delicious.
Yes, you will still find those fabulous recipes she remembers so fondly from family meals, but you’ll also find updated twists on classic trattoria favorites--California-inflected, hearty but not overwhelming, and with the perfect balance of healthfulness and terrific flavor. Wouldn’t you love a faster, lighter take on osso buco (here made with turkey instead of veal), a salad with real substance (like one of cantaloupe, red onion, and walnuts), and fish that gets an Italian makeover by way of lots of fresh veggies and accents such as fennel and grapefruit salsa? And let’s not forget dessert. After all, what’s not to adore about little doughnuts dipped in chocolate sauce?
Ranging from soups and snacks to easy entrées and elegant dinner-party fare, Giada’s recipes are perfect for any day of the week. And for the first time, she includes a full section of dishes that the little ones will love making as much as they love eating (like mini chicken meatballs). With something to please everyone at your table, Giada’s Kitchen deliciously demonstrates why Giada De Laurentiis has become America’s best-loved Italian cook.
Italy meets California In Giada De Laurentiis’s collection of 100 new recipes, she focuses on fresh ingredients, simple preparation, and bright flavors. Anyone who wants to indulge in the pleasures of Italian food without feeling weighed down will find inspiration for delicious, hearty yet healthy weekday meals. Giada’s recipes satisfy both our desire to eat with gusto and to feel good about what we eat.
Giada De Laurentiis is the star of Food Network’s "Everyday Italian" and "Giada's Weekend Getaways." She attended the Cordon Bleu in Paris, and then worked in a variety of Los Angeles restaurants, including Wolfgang Puck’s Spago, before starting her own catering and private-chef company, GDL Foods. The granddaughter of movie producer Dino De Laurentiis, Giada was born in Rome and grew up in Los Angeles, where she now lives.
haven't had a chance to make anything yet. I'm very impressed with the care taken when packing.
Italian cooking with an added twist and so good!
Here's another wonderful book by Giada. Simple and easy to make recipes. Even the kids, mac and cheese was wonderful.
Giada has the best recipes! Everything I make my boyfriend loves. I made the stuffed peppers last night for some friends and they were a huge hit.
I have used two or three already and they have been easy to put together and tasty. It would be nice to get it at a little lower price.
I like the recipes in this book, they're easy to follow and I like having the pictures of the recipes also
I have ordered Giada's other cookbooks, and this cookbook is such a nice addition to my others. You can't go wrong in ordering this cookbook, you are sure to be pleased with the recipes and pictures.
It has fast and easy recipes,with very nice color photos. I think it was a Great Deal.
This book is so much like actually watching her do each recipe. Easy to follow and extremely easy to eat - oh yum. It is also nice to see a picture of what the recipe looks like so you have some idea as to what it is suppose to look like when YOU make it. Keep up the great and fabulous cooking Giada - you've gotten me back into old fashion home cooking again and my family and friends thank you as well. Now, nothing is left over anymore. If it is - someone always wants to take the leftovers home.
The Cookbook itself was wonderful. However, the response from the outside vendor that shipped this book to me was unacceptable. I had to call everyday to see if it had been shipped and I had paid extra money to have it shipped by Christmas. They neglected to send me a tracking number so that I could check on it. Other than that, I was pleased with the contents of the cookbook as it was a gift for my Grandaughter.
I gave this book as a gift to a good friend who loves Giada's Tv show. She absolutely loved the book.
I gave this to my husband for Christmas, he loves Giada and every time I make one of her recipes he loves it. So we will be cooking from this cookbook for many years to come.
She makes cooking fun and easy. I love all of her receipes. They are all great for family dinners or entertaining. I would highly recommend any of her cookbooks, even for beginners.
Best Italian cookbook, very easy and simple recipies. Always delicious!!! Very easy to follow. Usually have everything in stock. Thank-you Giada
Love Giada! This book is easy to follow and love that there is a photo with each recipe. It gives me an idea of how it should look.
This book contains several of my favorite recipies. Giada is a great teacher and coach. Thnaks
Nice fresh recipes, contemporary cuisine
I think this is a good read!
Great book. I bought it as a gift for my daughter who loves Giada. She thought the book was great!
WE always love Giada's cookbooks and find that the recipes always come out great. They are easy top follow and the flavors are wonderful.
