The untold truth of Giada De Laurentiis

Let’s be honest, we all love food, and we love piling our forks with delicious delicacies, sweet treats and more. Yet, for some people, eating is just a way to survive. They shovel handfuls of leaves, carbohydrates, and protein into their body to fuel their daily activities, and to keep their body going – but where is the fun in that?! When you disregard the gym goers and those without taste buds, the rest of the world takes great enjoyment in the food they put into their mouths, and love nothing more than tasting dishes from around the world, in addition to perfecting their culinary skills. Unfortunately, there are some people who just aren’t skilled in the kitchen, and manage to turn everything they touch into ashes. Indeed, cooking is an art form that isn’t for everyone, but those who have got it just love to flaunt it, just like Giada De Laurentiis. Although you’ve seen her on your TV screen, do you really know her full story?

In today’s day and age, we’re overrun with cooking channels and shows. In fact, there are so many to choose from you could say that too many cooks are spoiling the broth! Nevertheless, amongst these cooking channels is the piece de resistance – the Food Network. This American cable channel is considered one of the best and most popular cooking channels in the world and reaches a whopping 95 million households across the United States. Since its inception in 1993, the Food Network has brought to light some of the world’s most popular television chefs. Thanks to their multitude of shows and presenting opportunities, the likes of Bobby Flay, Guy Fieri, Rachael Ray, Paula Deen, Alton Brown and Ina Garten have managed to build up their cooking careers and venture into the world of popular culture… and now we don’t know what our lives would be like without them! Their shows teach us how to cook, make us constantly salivate and wish smelly vision was invented already, but they also show us the time and energy that goes into being a TV chef.

However, if you’re a fan of the Food Network, you’ll realize that one of the most popular TV chefs is missing from our list. Of course, we’re talking about Giada De Laurentiis. This Italian-American chef is a Food Network alum who has brought numerous shows and books into our lives and wowed fans across the world. Yet, people only see Giada on their screens. What is her life really like when the cameras are turned off? This is the untold truth of Giada De Laurentiis…
