Monaco to New York!

I have been on such a whirlwind I don't even know where to even begin! I can honestly say after a good night’s sleep...with my feet back in some LA sand...there's no place like HOME!!

As many of you may have seen on twitter, I had such a blast in Monaco shooting the next "Giada in Paradise"!!  Monte Carlo has always been an important place to my family...so it was extra special to shoot our "Paradise" episode there with Aunt Raffy! My favorite moments... driving an F3 race car (really fast!!!), an unbelievable meal w/ Raffy at Ducasse....more than the food I fell in love w/ the table setting and service!  For highlights from our travels search #GiadainMonaco on twitter... 

  

I flew straight in to NYC from Monaco for the New York Food and Wine Festival.... and I think I will be full for a month!  From Meatball Madness to cooking demos to book signings to the Burger Bash to the TimesTalk w/ Bobby Flay (where I spilled the beans about our exciting new venture coming up)...it was a packed weekend for sure! I even squeezed in a quick, delicious bite at Guy Fieri’s new spot in Times Square, Guy’s American! Sashimi Tuna Tacos = Mmm. It was great seeing everybody at the festival...and for those who couldn't make it...I was sure to tweet some highlights! (Look at #NYCWFF on twitter...everyone was posting all weekend...so cool!)

 

There are lots of exciting things coming down the pipeline... I start filming Season 10 of G@H next week!!  I cannot believe we have done 10 seasons together!! I'm so excited to get back in the kitchen! Also, make note that my live twitter chat with Women's Health Magazine is coming up on 10/23 at 1pm PST...tweet me live about party planning tips and questions you might have as the holidays approach!

Make sure you check out my G@H Halloween episode airing October 27th!! What are you going to be this year? Tweet me your costumes and spooky snacks - I wanna see!!
