Cooking with Giada de Laurentiis Pt. 1

We’ve been so busy these last few weeks and now I finally have time to share with you all of our experiences. So strap on your seat belts and enjoy the ride.

If you’re a real foodie, you would have followed all of the excitement around the New York Wine & Food Festival during the 2nd week of October.

Last year, we tried to attend as many events as could without spending a bunch of money. Some of the events can get a bit pricey, but definitely worth the experience. While attending the Target’s Fun & Fit event last year, we watch Sunny Anderson and Giada de Laurentiis cook some amazing meals.

Watching these wonderful women on the stage, lit a spark within us and was our inspiration for really pursuing our love for food. Little did LaurenAsh know, that I was making a promise to myself that I’d be cooking with one of these ladies, during the same time a year from then.

This is living proof that, when you set a goal and believe in it, anything is possible.

Yes, here I am, with the famous Giada de Laurentiis, after a long day of dinner service for her guests during her “Italian Paradise Dinner” sponsored by the New York Wine & Food Festival.

Marinate on that for a bit and I share with you my journey of how I ended up here.
