Ah, food. The thing that gives us the fuel to get through the day, gets our taste buds tingling, and can almost engulf our entire lives. Whoever would have thought there were so many delicious flavors out there? Now, we don’t only get to enjoy our food, but we get to see our favorite people cook them up with every opportunity. It’s time to meet Giada De Laurentiis – the world’s favorite chef and TV personality.
Who is Giada De Laurentiis?
Giada De Laurentiis is a name that many of us have grown to know and love over the years thanks to her years in the kitchen. However, it all started back on August 22, 1970 – the year Giada was born. The star was born in Italy before later moving to Los Angeles where she made her way through high school with ease. That was until she discovered her real passion: cooking.
Getting into the trade
Giada admits it was her family that made her fall in love with cooking, and she knew she had to take her passion to the next level, the youngster soon enrolled at Le Cordon Bleu – a famous culinary institution in Paris. Giada had dreams of becoming a pastry chef, but that all changed when she landed back in the U.S. It wasn’t long before Giada found herself working as a food stylist and landed a job with the Food Network. This was only the beginning.
Life on our screens
Believe it or not, but Giada has appeared on a whole host of shows over the years. Giada In Italy gave us the chance to see the chef traveling the country to show off the foods and flavors that have inspired her over the years, while Giada At Home gave us a look into what life in the Laurentiis kitchen is like every day. As if that wasn’t enough, Everyday Italian lets us see how Giada brings her family’s cooking into everyday meals for her family.
A line of products
If you want to bring a bit of Giada into your home without kidnapping the chef, then have you thought about buying one of her many products on the market? All you need to do is take a trip down to Target where you can find a whole host of cooking utensils, including tools, pans, pots, and even knives. As if that wasn’t enough already, Giada has also released a small selection of food products, such as pastas and sauces.
Taking her home
There is no shortage of cookery books if you want to bring Giada’s recipes to life in your very own kitchen. However, you might have to wait a long time if you want to get any closer to the star. Giada was married to fashion designer Todd Thompson for 12 years before they finalized their divorce in 2015. Sadly for us, Giada has been spotted on the arm of producer Shane Farley since November 205, and it seems as though this relationship is built to last.
It seems as though there is plenty to the woman behind the apron, and we can’t help but love Giada De Laurentiis more and more as we learn all about her incredible career. Perhaps one day we can all learn to cook up such wonderful Italian delights in our own home, too?
