Giada is overrated BTW.
She not all that good a chef either. Is she a trained chef?

I mean I like her, and she is pretty and all. But I have not watched food network or any food shows in years. There was a time when thats all I watched.
She trained as a chef at Le Cordon Bleu in Paris and worked as a chef and caterer before being recruited by Food Network; her show has won several Daytime Emmys. I don't think she has the most engaging personality, but I like many of her recipes.

If you haven't watched her show in many years (if ever), why do you say she's overrated?

She cooked with her family when she was growing up and spent time in the restaurant her grandfather owned.

I don't think Food Network told her how to dress. She spent her early years in Rome, Italy, and Los Angeles, which are much less conservative than most the United States.
