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.
The book is really good and I received it about a week before I was supposed to which is always a plus. I bought a copy for a friend of mine for her birthday and I think she will enjoy it as well. I especially liked the fact that now I have an autographed Giada cookbook!! Thank you!14 of 14 users found this helpful. Was it helpful to you? Yes | No Report Violation »

Giada at Home cookbook
As soon as I received it (which came a couple of days after ordering it) I couldn't put it down. The photos look very appetising and I know I am going to enjoy making the recipes. I have all of her books and have made quite a lot of dinners and lunches out of them. Keep up the good work Giada, love u. E from Fla.8 of 8 users found this helpful. Was it helpful to you?

Size of Recipes
I really like Giada's recipes because she does not try to make them all for 10 people. Especially her desserts are smaller and much better for my 3-person household. My only problem is that I cannot use garlic or onion--how horrible. I make do with fennel, thanks to Giada. I wish her nothing but the best in the future and just love that Jade baby!!!!2 of 3 users found this helpful. Was it helpful to you? Yes | No Report Violation »

Used a recipe the first day.
A great book for simple, but enjoyable and authentic Italian meals. Much better than the usual "90 ways to cook spaghetti" that seem to be everywhere. I am used to getting my books from discount places, so it would be nice to get this at a lower cost.0 of 0 users found this helpful. Was it helpful to you? Yes | No Report Violation »
This book is great. Giada has great recipes and and lots of photos you can tell they are from the heart. What I like is she shares family photos and it is great to see she is a real person. Someday I would like to meet her.0 of 0 users found this helpful. Was it helpful to you? Yes | No Report Violation »

Great really Great Book
I purchased this for my wife's Xmas present, it showed up a 3 days earlier than promised which was great. Surprised her so much and when she found the signed card from Giada she was in tears. My wife watches her show everyday, her dream is to meet and talk to Giada some day. My wife was adopted at birth 53 years and always wondered about her heritage, I did a littel searching and made one phone call, I thought it was a dead end, 2 years later I got a message on Linkin asking if I was the person that called, it turned out that her birth family got my name and # from her dead brother's answer machine. We found out that my wife has a large real family in NY and she is 100% Cecilian. It would be great if Giada could teach my wife how to prepare a few dishes for her new found family before we get to meet them in person, all contact with them is by phone, can't afford the trip to NY to meet them, the family is too large to come here to CA. Thank you Giada for making my wife happy at Christmas.0 of 0 users found this helpful. Was it helpful to you? Yes | No Report Violation »
Love this cookbook
I enjoy watching Giada on The Food Network and also enjoy watching Jade grow up. I do have one comment, on page 37 for the ingredients list of Zucchini blossoms it stated to see the Cook's Note and there was no Cook's Note. Can you tell me where I could purchase them if I chose to make this recipe? Other than that I loved her comments on her family and the traditions and joys she finds with them. I've felt kind-of in a rut with my cooking and I'm hoping this will get me out of it. Love the show!0 of 0 users found this helpful. Was it helpful to you? Yes | No Report Violation »

Love, Love, Love this cookbook!
Giada is one of my favorite chefs. This cookbook makes you feel like you are part of her family. Pictures of each dish are great!!! And the family pictures are absolutly wonderful! I would love to know if her Christmas show is available on DVD, the one where she goes to Aspen to spend Christmas with her Aunt Raffy. If it is available please email me with the information. Thanks! Debbie Kirby :)0 of 0 users found this helpful. Was it helpful to you? Yes | No Report Violation »
