The bestselling author and Food Network star comes to DC in celebration of the release of her latest cookbook, Weeknights with Giada: Quick and Simple Recipes to Revamp Dinner. Giada will be interviewed by Bonnie Benwick, interim Food Editor of The Washington Post.

Providing a sneak peek into Giada’s day-to-day life with her husband Todd and daughter Jade, the book—full of go-to recipes to get a delicious meal on the table in a flash—is, as Giada says, “for everyone who comes home after a long day and wonders what to cook for dinner.”

All of the dishes come together quickly, most in half an hour or less. The recipes are predominantly Italian, though some California and global influences emerge.

De Laurentiis, the star of Everyday Italian and Giada at Home, attended the Cordon Bleu in Paris and has her own catering company, GDL Foods. Book signing to follow.
