I love Giada. I love her simple yet sophisticated take on Italian food – authentic flavors, beautiful presentations, and dishes/ingredients described in wonderfully poetic terms (unlike some other personalities I can think of that drop those shudder-inducing “yum-o’s!” all over the place). Shudder.
The book is full of tasty recipes that have been featured the past season on Everyday Italian.
Among my favorites are the Crispy Smoked Mozzarella with Honey and Figs,
Orzo-Stuffed Peppers (I’ve used feta instead of Pecorino Romano and it came out delicious),
and I can’t wait to try these Panini with Chocolate and Brie – such a classic Giada combination.
Mmm…I can’t wait to eat my way through this book!
