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
