Plot Synopsis

In the ultimate summer vacation, celebrity chef Giada De Laurentiis jets off to her home country of Italy to celebrate authentic cooking and enjoy family adventures. Inspired by the rich traditions of the region and her family's signature approaches to time-honored dishes, Giada prepares bountiful meals for the clan while honoring their beloved traditions. This 13-episode, half-hour series opens with Giada arriving in Italy and, after opening up the holiday house, she heads into Sorrento to stock up on essential Italian ingredients. Then, Giada returns home to prepare a light meal inspired by the local goods, including Grilled Treviso with Citrus Bagna Cauda, Pan-Seared Branzino with Tomato and Capers, and Fresh Citrus with Gelato and Almond Cookies. No stranger to Giada's shows, Giada's Aunt Raffy is on hand as well. She and Giada will explore their family's treasured recipe book, and in later episodes, the familial feasts continue.
