We find it almost impossible to get bored in the kitchen when Giada De Laurentiis starts slicing, dicing and advicing her way into our hearts. Yes, she’s gorgeous. But De Laurentiis also projects a child-like enthusiasm for everything culinary and good—almost as if she’s on a mission to sing the praises of every morsel she prepares. As the host of Giada in Italy, De Laurentiis transports viewers to the country of her birth, introducing them to the family, friends and flavors that inspire her life’s work. Whether digging through her grandmother’s recipe book or exploring her grandfather’s former pasta factory, Laurentiis exudes an enthusiasm that is infectious. Nothing dampens her high-octane antics as she fl ashes her bright smile even while working that elbow grease on the counter. Sure, cooking isn’t really this fun. But we don’t care: Giada makes us all want to believe, and you know what? We kind of do.
