Here you can see the results of my closest encounter with a Food Network celebrity chef since Alton Brown got that restraining order.

Yes, that is the star of the show "Everyday Italian" and the author of the cookbook "Everyday Italian" (same name...what a coincidence), Giada De Laurentiis.

She has a new cookbook out and she was signing it at the Barnes & Noble at Princeton MarketFair. Patricia and I went over to check it out and maybe get a signiture, but the line went almost to the other end of the mall. Neither of us felt like waiting, so we had to settle for a quick picture and a wave.

I swear that she didn't stop smiling the entire time.

Great shot, Mike.

I have a Giada de Laurentiis fan site and am always on the lookout for new material. Would you mind if I linked to this entry at GiadaFan? Or pehaps use the picture?

Be my guest! Glad to see that someone other than me and my close friends are actually seeing my posts!

That was a shame you and Patricia were not able to negotiate the long signing line.
As you know, we both watch hers and other programs on TV...not only on Food Network but also PBS.
I have gotten a number of recipes from Giada's show, including a really simple one that looked fun (and delicious) just yesterday. (Remind me to share it with you.)
Unfortunately, it will remain unprinted in "My Documents" until I resolve the feud between Word and my printer. Aaaaah!
