Giada Book Signing and Her Yummy Samplings

IMG_9115 [800x600]

In April 2010 I had gotten to meet Giada at her book signing (click HERE for details) and luckily this year I got to meet her again yesterday. I’m just glad I didn’t look at her with big eyes at tell her how pretty she is again! This time I asked her what it is she’s always wanted to learn to make herself. (example: home made cheese or pasta). Her response was Indian food, she’s only made it once or twice, but she would love to master the Indian cuisine.

The only thing I wish she could do is pose for a picture with you an maybe sign additional items (I will see her on the street at some point and get my apron signed!!!). I know she has to keep people moving along, and William Sonoma I thought did a good job at setting up a large enough area right in front of her to take pictures.

Here’s a few things they passed out while we stood in line. I’ve also included recipes in case you want to make them yourself.

Ginger-Tea Lemonade (Click HERE for recipe) OMG this stuff is addicting. I think my mother in law and I had at least 5 cups of this stuff! We both concluded it would taste good hot or cold (they served it chilled). Normally this isn’t something I would have seen the recipe and ran home to make it, but honestly I would make it now!

And of course something sweet! Double Chocolate and Espresso Cookies (Click HERE for recipe) These little jewels where also really yummy. I think I’ll be making them in my Christmas baskets this year.

Right as we where about to leave her sister showed up. Isn’t she a doll? She’s just as pretty in person as Giada is!

Such a fun day and she’s sooooo sweet to talk to in person! Can’t wait for more books to come out.

  1. She is a beautiful lady and I like watching her cook. I bet she's a real pleasure in person.
