    Giada De Laurentiis is the star of Everyday Italian on Food Network. She attended the Cordon Bleu in Paris, and then worked in a variety of Los Angeles restaurants, including Wolfgang Puck’s Spago, before starting her own catering and private-chef company, GDL Foods. The granddaughter of movie producer Dino De Laurentiis, she was born in Rome and grew up in Los Angeles, where she now lives. This is her first book.
    In her hit Food Network show Everyday Italian, Giada De Laurentiis shows you how to cook delicious, beautiful food in a flash. And here, in her long-awaited first book, she does the same—helps you put a fabulous dinner on the table tonight, for friends or just for the kids, with a minimum of fuss and a maximum of flavor. She makes it all look easy, because it is.

    Everyday Italian is true to its title: the fresh, simple recipes are incredibly quick and accessible, and also utterly mouth-watering—perfect for everyday cooking. And the book is focused on the real-life considerations of what you actually have in your refrigerator and pantry (no mail-order ingredients here) and what you’re in the mood for—whether a simply sauced pasta or a hearty family-friendly roast, these great recipes cover every contingency. So, for example, you’ll find dishes that you can make solely from pantry ingredients, or those that transform lowly leftovers into exquisite entrees (including brilliant ideas for leftover pasta), and those that satisfy your yearning to have something sweet baking in the oven. There are 7 ways to make red sauce more interesting, 6 different preparations of the classic cutlet, 5 perfect pestos, 4 creative uses for prosciutto, 3 variations on basic polenta, 2 great steaks, and 1 sublime chocolate tiramisu—plus 100 other recipes that turn everyday ingredients into speedy but special dinners.

    What’s more, Everyday Italian is organized according to what type of food you want tonight—whether a soul-warming stew for Sunday supper, a quick saute for a weeknight, or a baked pasta for potluck. These categories will help you figure out what to cook in an instant, with such choices as fresh-from-the-pantry appetizers, sauceless pastas, everyday roasts, and stuffed vegetables—whatever you’re in the mood for, you’ll be able to find a simple, delicious recipe for it here. That’s the beauty of Italian home cooking, and that’s what Giada De Laurentiis offers here—the essential recipes to make a great Italian dinner. Tonight.

    • This is a fabulous cook book. I usually don't care much for Italian food because of all the tomatoe sauce. Thanks to Giada, I have a whole new appreciation for Italian cooking. She makes it fun and easy to make her dishes. I can't wait for her next book.

    • Too many pics of her
      Verified Purchase

      This is the only recipe book I have where I see her face all the time. I wanted to see more pictures of the food rather than her face all over the book. I would recommended 50/50 to my friends and family.

      One of the simplest and easy to follow Italian cookbooks published. Italian cooking made simple and with ingredients that you most likely have on your shelves. This is the second time that I have owned this cookbook. I gave the first one to a friend that had enjoyed a dinner at my home . She is not a cook, and said she would learn if she could make delicious meals like the one she had just eaten!! Well with those words of inspirattion, I felt she should not be held back, by not owing this book! This an excellent cookbook for anyone that enjoys Italian cooking!
