Giada De Laurentiis - Everyday Italian

Giada De Laurentiis Everyday Italian



This past Tuesday Giada was at William Sonoma (Philadelphia) for a book signing. I absolutely love her and her cookbook. On Saturday and Sunday afternoons (12pm) it is my favorite show on the Food Network Channel.



My wait during the book signing was literally three hours, however it was really worth the wait. Giada was very beautiful inside and out. She told me her mother and I have the same first name (Veronica). Giada was very gracious and took a picture with me.

That is great! I love her food. Everything I have made from her has turned out to be a real winner! She seems like she would be a very nice person. I am glad that you found out she really is that way

Roni you are one lucky duck! What a wonderful person to meet! I love her cooking style, and she seems to be one of those naturally hospitable (and beautiful) people.

Giada is my favorite FoodTV chef too! How cool that you got to talk with her. =)

I have the best luck with her recipes as well. She is spot-on for my way of cooking most of the time.

I love that cookbook and have made a couple of recipes from it. How very nice that you got to meet Giada. I watch her show everytime I get the chance.

Giada comes up with some interesting ideas that never would have occurred to me. Two examples I have made and really enjoyed:

Whole-Wheat Spaghetti with Swiss Chard and Pecorino Cheese

Orecchiette with Toasted Breadcrumbs

I agree RRH. I have made that Orecchiette with Toasted Breadcrumbs dish and it was a huge success. While watching her prepare it though, like you said, it never would have occurred to me.
