getting back to giada, i like her recipes, but she says crunchy too much.
i agree with pete about the production/ post prod. values of her show.
edited for mish, no jokes about giada today. (pm me if you wanted to hear it. )
anyway, of her recipes i've made lately, mine and dw's favorite, which i will be making tonight if she can get to the fish monger, is whole baked veggie stuffed fish.
the last time i made it, i used whole rainbow trout, which i cleaned, de-finned, and beheaded it (all the while speaking to it as Henry VIII), then i filled the cavity with bias sliced fennel, bok choy, and onion which were tossed in evoo, s&p, and a splash of balsamic. the fishes were tied tio help contain the veggies, evoo was drizzled on top, and it was baked at 400 for about 20 minutes or so.
i'll post an actual recipe if anyone's interested...
