With photos shot on location around her native Rome, Giada's latest book--a New York Times bestseller--is a lavish exploration of her food roots and the lifestyle traditions that define la bella vita, with the contemporary California twist that has made her America's most beloved Italian chef.

America knows and loves Giada De Laurentiis for her lighter, healthier takes on classic Italian fare. In her newest cookbook, she invites fans and home cooks to get to know the flavors and stories that have inspired her life's work. Here, she shares recipes for authentic Italian dishes as her family has prepared them for years while infusing them with her signature fresh flavors to make them her own, like in her Grilled Swordfish with Candied Lemon Salad; Spaghetti with Chianti and Fava Beans; Asparagus with Grilled Melon Salad; Bruschetta with Burrata and Kale Salsa Verde; and Fennel Upside Down Cake.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love Giada! I love Giada, have been to her restaurants and loved the food. This cookbook has beautiful pictures of Rome with her family. If you're familiar with her style of cooking, the book is easy to follow. If you are looking for detailed instructions and pictures, this isn't the book for you. I have used several of her recipes from this book (cookies, pasta, fish) and were all excellent.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from fairly good I have most of Giada's cookbooks- although this is a good cookbook I have to agree that her other ones are better. You are better off to watch her TV show and get her recipes!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not her best one She is one of my favourite Food Network chefs but this is not one of her better cookbooks, though the photographs of her in Italy are wonderful, her other books have better recipes.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Didn't like this This book was dissapointing because it seemed to focus on Giada's holiday to Italy, and pictures of her being pretty in various situations rather than focusing on food. There are much better cookbooks out there rather than this Giada photo album.
