Giada De Laurentiis’s love of food began at home, at the kitchen table of her Italian family. Born in Rome, Giada grew up in Los Angles eating prosciutto, olive oil, and Parmigiano-Reggiano when other kids were eating peanut butter and jelly on Wonder bread. At home, she learned to embrace the traditions that define la bella vita.
In her most personal cookbook yet, Giada’s Italy: My Recipes for La Dolce Vita (Clarkson Potter; $35; on sale April 3, 2018) Giada invites fans and home cooks to dive deeply into the flavors and stories that have inspired her life’s work.
In Giada’s Italy, Giada shares recipes for authentic Italian dishes as her family has prepared them for years while infusing them with contemporary, fresh flavors to make them her own: Grilled Swordfish with Candied Lemon Salad; Spaghetti with Chianti and Fava Beans; Asparagus with Grilled Melon Salad; Bruschetta with Burrata and Kale Salsa Verde; Chianti Affogado.
With chapters and recipes that reflect the way Italians like to eat, Giada’s Italy will help readers channel the spirit of those big-hearted Italian cooks and rediscover the simple pleasures of sharing food with the people you care about.
Filled with gorgeous photography of Italy, peppered with family stories, and complete with more of Giada’s tips and advice for cooking up fabulous meals with ease, Giada’s Italy is a stunning celebration of Italy’s flavors as only Giada could present them.
