From simple to prepare after-work dinners to hearty and generous meals for ten or more, Giada's recipes can really be used everyday with little fuss and much reward. The language is warm, the recipes are clear, uncluttered, and surprisingly rich and satisfying. I've honestly not come across such a useful and rewarding cookbook in some time. Highly recommended!

Publisher Comments:


In her New York Times bestseller Everyday Italian, Giada De Laurentiis introduced us to the simple, fresh flavors of her native Italian cuisine. Now, America?s favorite Italian cook is back with a new batch of simple, delicious recipes geared toward family meals?Italian style.

These unpretentious and delicious meals are at the center of some of Giada?s warmest memories of sitting around the table with her family, passing bowls of wonderful food, and laughing over old times. Recipes for soups like Escarole and Bean and hearty sandwiches such as the classic Italian Muffuletta make casual, easy suppers, while one-pot dinners like Giada?s Chicken Vesuvio and Veal Stew with Cipollini Onions are just as simple but elegant enough for company. You?ll also find recipes for holiday favorites you?ll be tempted to make all year round, including Easter Pie, Turkey and Ciabatta Stuffing with Chestnuts and Pancetta, and Panettone Bread Pudding with Amaretto Sauce.

Giada?s Family Dinners celebrates the fun of family meals with photographs of Giada?s real-life family and friends as well as the wonderful dishes she shares with them in her kitchen. Suggested menus help you put together a family-style meal for any occasion, from informal to festive.

The heart of Italian cooking is the home, and Giada?s Family Dinners?full of fantastic recipes that require a minimum of fuss to prepare?invites you to treat everyone like a member of the family.

Nothing is more important than family. Bring yours to the table with Giada?s unpretentious, authentic, down-home Italian cooking!

Review:

"With her second cookbook, Food TV star De Laurentiis proves she's more than just a pretty face. Although the host of Everyday Italian is not hard to look at, and photos of her and her family cooking are scattered throughout, there are many more reasons to pick up this book. If classics like Escarole and Bean Soup, Chicken Marsala, and Basic Polenta aren't strong enough incentives, then perhaps modern interpretations such as Chicken Carbonara, Roasted Red Snapper with Parsley Vinaigrette, Whole Wheat Spaghetti with Swiss Chard and Pecorino Cheese, or Espresso Brownies will be. Like De Laurentiis's first, bestselling book (named after her show), this volume presents doable dishes, though there's an emphasis here on feeding a crowd (which doesn't mean small households can't make Italian Wedding Soup and freeze some for an easy weeknight supper). There are twists on Thanksgiving classics, including Turkey with Herbes de Provence and Citrus, Ciabatta Stuffing with Chestnuts and Pancetta, and Butternut Squash Lasagna as well as recipes for traditional Italian holiday foods like Easter Pie, Pizza Rustica, and Panettone Bread Pudding with Amaretto Sauce. Broader and more developed than Everyday Italian, De Laurentiis's second book nicely showcases her range and depth." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Unbelievable great recipes that don't take the entire day to do. One of the best pasta dishes in this book that my family has ever had and the tips on cooking were really time savers. Giada is not only one beautiful woman, but she can cook!! We gave two of these books for Christmas this year.
