This Bites: Why Are Women Depicted Differently from Men in Food Photography?

Hannah Smith-Drelich 46 comments

I was at the New York Wine and Food Festival's Meatball Madness event last Thursday night when I was suddenly struck with the bizarreness of celebrity food paparazzi. I was part of the starstruck crowd gathered around Giada de Laurentiis's meatball stand, hoping for a glimpse of the Food Network star. She was there, looking (surprise) exactly like she does on her show, smiling with remarkable persistence. "Take a bite for us!" shouted a photographer jostling behind me. "Giada, can I have your balls?" cried someone else. More

Kristen Swensson of Cheap, Healthy, Good swings by these parts to share healthy and delicious recipes with us. While Ina Garten is far and away my favorite Food Network host (oh, to have her barn), Giada De Laurentiis is growing... More

Blogwatch: Berry Mascarpone Cupcakes

Grace Kang 1 comment

How luscious are these berry mascarpone cupcakes? Kristin, of Pickycook, adapts a recipe from Giada De Laurentiis and shows how easy frosting can be—just purée some frozen berries and add confectioner's sugar. This is a great alternative for those who detest froofy buttercreams and the like. I love buttercream, but, hey, (wo)man can't live on buttercream alone. The mascarpone cake base is also a nice twist to the usual yellow or chocolate cake.... More

Cook the Book: Cornmeal and Rosemary Cake with Balsamic Syrup

Serious Eats Lucy Baker Post a comment

When describing this Cornmeal and Rosemary Cake with Balsamic Syrup, Giada de Laurentiis says to "imagine the best corn muffin you've ever tasted, but richer and sweeter." That sounds pretty good to me, and I'm not even the hugest corn... More

Cook the Book: Roasted Halibut with Grapefruit Fennel Salsa

Serious Eats Lucy Baker Post a comment

Grapefruits are one of my favorite cold weather foods. Not only are they packed with flu-fighting vitamin C, their bright flavor is like a mini burst of sunshine. Often I peel and eat them unadorned, like oranges or clementines. But... More

Cook the Book: Whole-Wheat Linguine with Green Beans, Ricotta, and Lemon

Serious Eats Lucy Baker 2 comments

When people think "Giada" they think "pasta." After all, her previous cookbook, Everyday Pasta, was entirely dedicated to the subject. At a time when most of America was quaking in the wake of carbs, Giada taught us that they were... More

Orzo with Sausage, Peppers, and Tomatoes

Serious Eats Lucy Baker Post a comment

This week's recipe for Giada de Laurentiis's orzo with sausage, peppers, and tomatoes is taken from the chapter of Giada's Kitchen dedicated to kid-friendly food, but I think it's great for grown-ups, too. It's also incredibly versatile; leave out the... More

Cook the Book: Red Pepper Cheesecake with Homemade Pita Chips

Serious Eats Lucy Baker 2 comments

Normally, I wouldn't excerpt a recipe that calls for a specific pan in an unusual shape or size. Nothing is more frustrating then getting all excited to bake, say, a spicy gingerbread, only to discover that it requires six mini... More

Cook the Book: Butternut Squash and Vanilla Risotto

Serious Eats Lucy Baker Post a comment

Don't be put off by the vanilla bean in this recipe excerpted from Giada's Kitchen; Butternut Squash and Vanilla Risotto is actually a savory dish. Instead of adding sweetness, the vanilla imparts a lovely, fragrant note. Flavored with white wine... More

Cook the Book: 'Giada's Kitchen'

Lucy Baker Closed

On September 26, just four days shy of the publication of her fourth cookbook, Giada's Kitchen, Giada de Laurentiis launched a social-networking website. When I last checked on Sunday night, she already had 1,026 members. That means more than 100 new people are signing up every day. With numbers like that it's hard to argue with the jacket copy, which states that Giada "has become America's best-loved Italian cook." While I'm not about to create a profile for myself (I'm not even on Facebook), I must admit that I, too, am a Giada fan. Years ago a friend prepared a fabulous feast centered around her recipe for Spaghetti with Clams, and I frequently serve her Tuscan Mushrooms (stuffed with... More

Cindy McCain Allegedly Lifting Recipes from Food Network

Adam Kuban 17 comments

Cindy McCain; Giada De Laurentiis In what it's calling "Farfallegate," the Huffington Post breaks a huge story sure to derail Senator John McCain's bid for the presidency. Cindy McCain has allegedly been lifting recipes from the Food Network site, including those of Giada De Laurentiis: On a section of McCain's site called "Cindy's Recipes," you can find seven recipes attributed to Cindy McCain, each with the heading "McCain Family Recipe." Ms. Handel quickly realized that some of the "McCain Family Recipes," were in fact, word-for-word copies of recipes on the Food Network site.At least three of the "McCain Family Recipes" appear to be lifted directly from the Food Network, while at least one is a Rachael Ray recipe with...
