De Laurentiis, a self-proclaimed chocoholic, studied at Le Cordon Blue in Paris, France with aspirations of becoming a Pastry Chef. After returning to the United States, she became a professional chef working in several Los Angeles Restaurants, notably the Wolfgang Puck-owned Spago.

I love Giada de Laurentiis and her shows especially “Everyday Italian”… I’m not an expert in cooking but i think i could be a chef in my own right because of her easy-to-do Italian recipes and desserts. I adore her, & her shows are so informative and entertaining as well.
