Last year, Food Network star Giada de Laurentiis spent an entire month cooking her way through the Amalfi Coast for her first season of Giada in Italy. Now she’s back with more real Italian recipes, this time from Florence and the surrounding region of Tuscany.
Of course we’re always interested in Giada’s recipes — they’re easy to make and they deliver on flavor — but we also have our eye on her kitchen. Overlooking the Ponte Vecchio, the kitchen was built from scratch in just three days, and Giada herself had a hand in the decorating.
Here’s a sneak peek at her Italian kitchen and some ideas to steal. And don’t forget to tune in today for the premiere of the new season of Giada in Italy.

Snacking doesn’t have to mean raiding the chip stash in the office kitchen or making a beeline for the vending machine, or even pulling a cheese stick or piece of fruit from the fridge. Those aforementioned options are not bad choices — we’ve simply taken a different, more modern view on snacking; one that embraces a love for whole-food snacking, puts effort into planning and prep, adds playful twists to classic favorites, and leans on fast, functional foods.

For the first six months of her life, my daughter lived entirely on picnics. A mother’s moveable feast — packed not in a basket, but a nursing bra — taught her that eating was a pleasure to be had wherever you might find yourself. Then at the six-month solid-food milestone, mealtimes suddenly became lessons in modern civility: silverware, linen (aka bibs), and being confined to a chair rather than reclining as if at a Roman banquet.

Rosé season officially starts with that first balmy day in May. Come mid-summer, if you’re a fan of the pink wine, you’ve likely hit it a little too hard. Because when it’s hot and you could be sipping a crisp, cool glass, when is it not rosé o’clock?
Let’s be completely honest here — rosé fatigue exists. I know, I am as dumbfounded as you are, but come late July, that easy, breezy glass just might be a little tiresome if you’ve been enjoying it all too frequently for the first half of the season (guilty). The solution? A pitcher of rosé lemonade.
