Who Wouldn't Love 125 Simple and Delicious Italian Recipes?
It's no wonder this is one of the best selling cookbooks on the market today. Besides Giada's popular cooking show, Everyday Italian, on Food Network, this is a well thought out, easy to follow, well written cookbook. It's great to find a cookbook that is written for us "everyday" home cooks with recipes that don't require an hours of prep and a staff of ten.
It turns out Ms. DeLaurentiis is a Le Cordon Bleu trained chef who has worked in Los Angles at some very fine restaurants including Wolfgang Puck's Spago but still likes to cook simple, Italian home cooked meals. She was born in Rome and is the granddaughter of a very famous movie producer, Dino De Laurentiis who I once worked for years ago on a movie called King of the Gypsies.
Her new cookbook is filled with over 100 recipes, gorgeous food photographs and includes shortcuts like offering seven different ways to doctor up a basic red sauce.
This is Ms. DeLaurentiis's first cookbook, but I'm sure we will be seeing many more from this young star chef.
