Since her debut on Food Network in 2002 with the hit program
Everyday Italian, Giada De Laurentiis has been enticing
Americans with her updated twists on Italian favorites. Her
dedication to ease, healthfulness, and—above all else—flavor
have won her a permanent place in the hearts of home cooks.
In Giada at Home, she shares a personal look into how she
cooks for those dearest to her, with simple recipes inspired
by her television show of the same name.
Born in Italy, Giada was raised in Los Angeles by a
gregarious Italian family. While her grandmother, aunt, and
mother brought her up on generations-old recipes, Giada also
became enamored with the bright and clean flavors of
California’s abundant seasonal fruits and vegetables. Giada
at Home presents recipes from both traditions, all with
Giada’s signature style. She shares classic Italian recipes
passed down through the years, like cheese-stuffed dates
wrapped in salty prosciutto, creamy risotto with the earthy
and deep flavors of mushrooms and gorgonzola, and lamb chops
basted with honey and balsamic vinegar. New family favorites
include grilled asparagus and melon, game hens roasted with
citrus and herbs, and a sorbet made with pomegranate and
mint, all bursting with fresh, vibrant flavors.
No meal would be complete without the company of family and
Giada particularly enjoys bringing her loved ones together
over meals. For the first time, she incorporates her go-to
brunch recipes—what she cooks when setting up a feast on her
back patio for everyone on weekend mornings—from
Jade-approved Panini, with gooey mozzarella, luscious
raspberries, and a sprinkling of brown sugar, to Todd’s
favorite pancetta-studded waffles scented with cinnamon.
No matter which recipe you choose—classic or
contemporary—Giada at Home makes gathering the favorite
people in your life for fabulous weeknight meals and family
celebrations delicious and easy.
