Anyway, here's my presentation of Giada with her two favorite ingredients, Parmigiano Reggiano and dark chocolate (or any kind of chocolate). I'm going to throw in a pastry chef's favorite, Valrhona. I think G-girl would be happiest if every recipe included these two items. (-;
In different lighting now wearing her "whisk" earrings:
When I posted this last night, I FORGOT to include Giada's "Whisk" earrings! The horror! Do you like her with or without her silver accessories?
Here's our meal at La Sorella Di Francesca--you must eat Italian before seeing Giada!.
My Prosciutto-Wrapped Watermelon with Basil and thick Balsamic Vinaigrette
I could eat this one dish for the rest of my life!
Olive and 4-Cheese Pizza
Tomato Pesto Pizza
Fresh Buffalo Mozarella, Heirloom Tomatoes, Pesto, Balsamic Reduction
Roasted Potatoes in Olive Oil
My Flourless Chocolate Cake with Cinnamon Gelato and Raspberry Sauce
Giada really wasn't that far away, but I just couldn't get my phone camera to work right (uh, yeah. the fault lies with the operator!). Here's a couple of blurry little pics of her.
P.S. Poor Giada sliced her finger open on that Food Network LIVE Thanksgiving special on Saturday, November 23rd. I watched about the first 1/2 hour and then turned it off. I'm glad I missed the human slicing and dicing. I would have fainted sitting on the couch, let alone being on national t.v.! Here's a link to her Instagram pic--I can't bear to have you see it unless you want to view it: http://instagram.com/p/hE5ilykUqM/#
