I am loving this cookbook. And I am not a huge giada fan. But I saw it at Costco and was unable to resist once I looked through the recipes. It has both classic Italian and new, giada-ized California recipes. I had it for a week and had already made four recipes out of it. The pasta Ponza was fantastic and the honey balsamic lamb chops as well. The chicken milanese is a fresh, delicious take on plain breaded chicken and the mascarpone in the sauce really steps it up a notch. There was a salmon dish in there that I wasn't as big on, but I did swap for wild salmon, which is just not as good. It's drier and thinner so easier to overcook. Sorry, sustainability.
