Giada’s Vegas-based Italian restaurant, GIADA, sits inside of The Cromwell Hotel on the Vegas strip. Depending on which source you look at, it’s rated anywhere between 4.3 and 4.6 stars, the latter of which is what Google currently says, based on over 13,000 reviews.
One of the guest favorites seems to be the breadbasket, stuffed with warm, homemade focaccia and crunchy lavish. She also offers various gluten-free, dairy-free, and vegan options for those who adhere to specific diets. The restaurant serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner, which is important in a city that runs 24/7.
Lots of Love
Although Giada and Todd are no longer together, it doesn’t hurt their relationship with daughter Jade. That’s mainly because they’ve both made sure to prioritize her and her feelings throughout her life since the divorce.
Jade has gotten to travel worldwide and enjoy all kinds of fun activities with her mom and her dad, both together and separately. And, since she’s grown up with a professional chef, she’s developed quite a passion for cooking herself, which is very evident by everything she’s up to these days.
Since Jade has spent a lot of her childhood hanging around Giada when she’s at her restaurant or filming a show, she’s decided that she has quite a passion for food and for cooking herself. But not only that, she’s even developed her mom’s abilities for being on camera, which she put to use in her own cooking show that she posted online recently called " How to Hack it With Jade ."
Maybe she’ll keep following along in mom’s footsteps, like the ones that led her to become the first female chef to open her own restaurant on the Vegas strip.
Hall of Fame
Whether you love or hate Giada, there’s no denying that she’s one of the best chefs on TV these days. And, those who have dined in her restaurants would probably agree that she’s just one of the best in general.
That’s why, in 2012, she was welcomed into the Culinary Hall of Fame, which is an incredibly prestigious honor among those in the industry. The award is handed down from the American Academy of Chefs, which operates throughout the country and recognizes the best in the business.
You may be shocked to know that one of Giada’s favorite ingredients to add to pasta is – wait for it – chocolate. And, while this may sound like the one dish that actually belongs in the spit bucket, she actually eats this one. In fact, she has one of her recipes up on Food Network’s website that’s for Chocolate Fettuccini with Peas and Pancetta.
While it sounds absolutely disgusting, it’s actually rated five stars (out of five reviews,) but, considering she’s an expert in delicious Italian cuisine, perhaps it’s something that’s worth a shot (maybe minus the peas, though.)
