A Sunny New Giada!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Giada at Home: Family Recipes from Italy and California (Hardcover)
I'm a big fan of Giada, she is up there with Nigella for me. This new book, her fifth, is another winner. Her recipes here are fresh, delicious, sometimes Italian, sometimes Californian often healthy and all with a little Giada touch.
Those of us in the UK can now watch her on the Food Network channel here, and I know I'm not alone in really enjoying her programmes. Most of the recipes from the programmes (although not all) are here in the book. It's nicely laid out, beautiful pictures mostly of food, but with a number of Giada and her family too.
I'm really looking forward to cooking my way through this one and keeping my family happy and well fed with some lovely food.
Here is a taster of the recipes: Crispy Parmesan Biscuits (think savoury scones) filled with lemon butter, rocket and smoked salmon. Nonna Luna's Rice (rice with a spicy lemon and prawn cream sauce). Bucatini alla'amatriciana with Spicy Smoked Mozzarella Meatballs. Roasted Citrus-Herb Chicken with Crouton Salad. Honey Balsamic Lamb Chops. Grilled Asparagus and Melon Salad. Olive and Sun-Dried Tomato Vegetables. Poached Pears in Honey, Ginger and Cinnamon Syrup. Last but not least the gorgeous Chocolate Honey Almond Tart.
