Giada De Laurentiis’s love of food began at home and at the kitchen table of her Italian family. Born in Rome, Giada grew up in Los Angles eating prosciutto, olive oil, and Parmigiano-Reggiano when other kids were eating peanut butter and jelly on Wonder bread. At home, she learned to embrace the traditions that define la dolce vita.

In her most personal cookbook yet, Giada’s Italy: My Recipes for La Dolce Vita (Clarkson Potter; $35.00; on sale March 27, 2018), Giada invites fans and home cooks to dive deeply into the flavors and stories that have inspired her life’s work.

In Giada’s Italy, Giada shares recipes for her family’s authentic Italian dishes while infusing them with contemporary, fresh flavors to make them her own. With chapters and recipes that reflect the way Italians like to eat, Giada’s Italy will help readers channel the spirit of those big-hearted Italian cooks and rediscover the simple pleasures of sharing food with the people you love. Chapters and recipes include: 

  • STARTERS: Burrata with Nectarines and Corn; Antipasti in a Jar; Spicy Calabrian Shrimp
