Giada heads to the local farmers market near her beach house to pick up some fresh ingredients for an alfresco lunch with friends. Her light and colorful menu includes grilled kale salad with roasted sungolds.
Giada puts a West Coast spin on an East Coast tradition with an ultimate Italian clam bake dinner on the beach for her family. In addition to a California clam bake, her menu includes summer succotash and grilled seafood salad.
Giada and her weekend guests cook a feast made almost entirely on the outdoor grill. The seasonal surf and turf menu features grilled plum salad, spicy melon salad, grilled skirt steak with smoky herb sauce, and grilled halibut with olive bagna cauda.
Giada, her daughter, and a friend head out for an early morning paddleboarding session. They go from the beach to the kitchen to prepare berries with spiced cream, a peach and bacon frittata, lemon ricotta pancakes, and lemon shakeratos.
