Giada De Laurentiis is the granddaughter of a film industry legend, a graduate of Le Cordon Bleu, a Food Network star, and the owner of the most adorable "mmmmm" face on television.
Houston fans will have two chances to meet her in person when De Laurentiis stops in Houston next week to sign copies of her new cookbook, Giada at Home: Family Recipes from Italy and California, a collection of recipes inspired by her show of the same name.
Her first stop will be at the Town & Country Williams-Sonoma store on Tuesday at 1:30 p.m., followed by an appearance at Sur La Table in the River Oaks Shopping Center at 5 p.m.
Both stores will require the purchase of Giada's book on-site before issuing a ticket to stand in line to meet De Laurentiis and have it signed. Only 350 tickets will be given out at each location.
