New Release: Giada de Laurentiis's Everyday Pasta

[ Edited ]
Food Network Fave's Latest Dish

Book Cover Image: Title: The Book of Air and Shadows, Author: Michael Gruber Buy It From the Publisher:

For New York Times bestselling author Giada De Laurentiis, pasta has always been one of the great pleasures of the table: it’s healthy and delicious; it can be light and delicate or rich and hearty; it’s readily available and easy to prepare -- everything you want in a meal. And nothing satisfies a craving for Italian food quite like it! In Everyday Pasta, Giada invites you to share her love of this versatile staple with more than a hundred brand-new recipes for pasta dishes, as well as for complementary sauces, salads, and sides tempting enough to bring the whole family to the dinner table.

 

Giada de Laurentiis is certainly one of Food Networks most popular personalities. A big part of her appeal is that, though her recipes are easy, they never feel like corners have been cut or techniques dumbed-down. Her background has a lot to do with it. Giada was born in Italy to a large family (her grandfather is legendary film producer Dino de Laurentiis) where the culture of food was integral to daily life. She later worked at Wolfgang Puck's Spago before starting her own successful catering company, which in turn led to the Food Network.

Have you made any of Giada's recipes before? How did they turn out? Are you looking forward to cooking with Everyday Pasta? Share your thoughts and comments here. Also, be sure to check out our exclusive Meet the Writers interview with Giada.

I'm excited about this book coming out. I have her last two books, use them often, and plan to pick up her new one.

I record her program everyday and own one other of her cookbooks. I can't wait for this one. Her recipes are wholesome, conforting, not too difficult to carry out and they incite you to share them with family and friends.
