Giada De Larentiis is one of the chefs that I have actually seen on Food Network. "Born in Rome, Giada grew up in a large Italian family where the culture of food was a staple in and of itself. As the granddaughter of film producer Dino De Laurentiis, Giada consistently found herself in the family's kitchen and spent a great deal of time at her grandfather's restaurant, DDL Foodshow.
Her Emmy winning, daytime cooking show, Everyday Italian, features quick, healthy and satisfying Italian dishes. Her primetime show, Giada's Weekend Getaways, debuted in January 2007 and follows Giada to popular destinations in and around the United States as she explores the cities' most notable restaurants and activities."
She has almost 900 recipes to choose from. We will post her recipes on Wednesday, January 13, 2010.
I hope you are having a wonderful new year! Enjoy!
