Giada De Laurentiis will be in Fort Lauderdale at Williams-Sonoma at the Galleria Mall on Thursday, April 8th at 2:00p.m. for her new book signing of Giada at Home. This is big. No. To me this is HUGE.
I have been watching her show for over four years, seen her Chefography, and even served two of her recipes at my college graduation dinner. Fried gorgonzola cheeseballs with arugula salad and fried nutella wontons with sprinkled powdered sugar. Back when I had a myspace page, I even listed Giada as one of the Top 3 People I Would Like to Meet. So, I am only working a half day on Thursday to get the chance to meet one of my idols. (I hate to use that word, but I guess it classifies.) I don't get star struck. But this could be different. I'm shy, and just hoping it turns out to be a pleasant event. Luckily, I used to work at Williams-Sonoma in South Florida with the same manager, so keep your fingers crossed!
Have a super weekend!
Need a recipe for those leftover Easter eggs?
