Giada

I love Giada! She has such a great personality and makes such great dishes. I also enjoy watching her "Weekend Getaway" show when she explores a city through its food. I think that is so true, you can learn so much about a city just by eating the dishes they are known for. This is especially true when you travel internationally.

I enjoy her show as well. we have tried several recipes and generally like them a lot. The most recent, lemon nut cookies, was a bust though.

Thumbs up Giada DeLaurentiis

I'm a fan of her "Everyday Italian" show on the Food Network. When I was first learning how to cook I watched her TV show every day and picked up a lot of tips and information about foods.

the sound of her knife through on onion on her cutting board pioneered such food-o-vision which is now taken for granted. I still think her show has some of the most seductive food photography on TV. Yes many of her recipes are great to. While not strictly authentic, her carbonara is awesome!

One of my favorite chefs...love her bubbly personality and how she really savors the food she eats...also she's gone a long way from the camera shy chef to this confident and beautiful woman

Perfect!

That is how I can describe Giada. She's a great cook, she's charming, and she can handle the show very well!
