Nothing is more important than family. Bring yours to the table with Giada's irresistibly unpretentious, authentic Italian cooking!
In her New York Times bestseller Everyday Italian, Giada De Laurentiis introduced us to the basic, fresh flavors of her native Italian cuisine. Now, America's favorite Italian cook is back with a new batch of simple, delicious recipes geared toward family meals--Italian style.
These unpretentious and flavorful meals are at the center of some of Giada's warmest memories of sitting around the table with her family, passing bowls of wonderful food, and laughing over old times. Recipes for soups like Escarole and Bean and hearty sandwiches such as the classic Italian Muffuletta make casual, easy suppers, while one-pot dinner like Giada's Chicken Vesuvio and Veal Stew with Cipollini Onions are just as simple but elegant enough for company. You'll also find recipes for holiday favorites you'll be tempted to make all year round, including Easter Pie, Turkey and Ciabtta Stuffing with Chestnuts and Pancetta, and Panettone Bread Pudding with Amaretto Sauce.
Giada's Family Dinners celebrates the fun of family meals with photographs of Giada's real-life family and friends as well as the wonderful dishes she shares with them in her kitchen. Suggested menus help you put together a family-style meal for any occasion, from informal to festive.
The heart of Italian cooking is the home, and Giada's Family Dinners--full of fantastic recipes that require a minimum of fuss to prepare--invites you to treat everyone like a member of the family.
Giada De Laurentiis is the star of Food Network's Everyday Italian and Behind the Bash. 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.
This is one of my go to cookbooks. My book is splattered with olive oil so I thought it was time to buy a new one as well as another for someone to receive as a gift. I have so many favorite receipes: Chicken Marsala (I only use one T of dijon mustard) Chicken Florentine, Penne,sausage, artichokes and sundried tomatoes,farfalle with asparagus and mushrooms,and finally veal scaloppine with saffron cream sauce. All so easy to make...and absolutely delicious.
This book has lots of great recipes. I already had one and just had to get one for my daughter. I even made her a list of my favorite recipes! The recipes are all very simple and use easy to find ingredients. My family absolutely loves the Pot Roast!
Pretty pictures and format. Wish that contents (recipies) could be keyed more to the TV show so we could coordinate what we saw with where to find it in the book.
Giada does a wonderful job speaking to you in the cookbook... the same way she does on the program.
