Win a copy of Giada De Laurentiis' new cookbook (and a $50 VISA gift card to start your own Italian pantry)!

Clarkson Potter is partnering with me for this giveaway!


Warm weather is finally here in Iowa. This past week, we (and by "we" I mean "my fiance" because he has the green thumbs in our relationship) planted our first garden at our home. I can't wait for those summer days when we'll have fresh tomatoes, onions, asparagus, and more! While we do a fair amount of grilling out during the summer months, I also love putting our fresh produce to use in pastas and other Italian-inspired recipes. Giada's my go-to ever since that fateful college day I made her cacio e pepe with pancetta and arugula.

In stores now, you can find Giada's new cookbook Giada's Italy: My Recipes for La Dolce Vita. Along with that cacio e pepe pasta, it includes mouthwatering recipes for burrata with nectarines and corn, positano pizzas, spicy linguine with walnuts and mint, and asparagus with grilled melon salad. I'm envisioning warm summer nights dining al fresco with friends and wine. That's my "dolce vita."

I'm excited to share that the book publisher, Clarkson Potter (an imprint of Crown Publishing Group) has partnered with me to give one lucky winner a copy of Giada's Italy plus a $50 VISA gift card to stock up on Giada's recommendations for your very own Italian pantry! (Is there a better excuse for a summer dinner party?!)

Giveaway open to US addresses only. Prizing and samples provided by Clarkson Potter.




About Giada’s Italy

With photos shot on location around her native Rome, Giada's latest book 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. Filled with gorgeous photography of Italy, peppered with family stories, and complete with more of Giada's tips and advice for cooking up fabulous meals with ease, Giada's Italy is a stunning celebration of Italy's flavors as only Giada could present them.

I have to lasagna. Funny as how I hated it until I was 15. Then all of sudden a new world opened up for me. I love the slightly burned pieces of cheese on top. Oooh, the gooey cheese. I have been making a veggie lasagna lately and it is delicious, who knew!
