Giada’s Italy: My Recipes for La Dolce Vita! Recipes and Giveaway

I’m so happy Clarkson Potter invited me to help support it! Giada 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.

Take, for example, her Grilled Swordfish with Candied Lemon Salad or her Spaghetti with Chianti and Fava Beans. Some more great examples of her style and take on classic Italian could be the Asparagus with Grilled Melon Salad or perhaps the Bruschetta with Burrata and Kale Salsa Verde.

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.
