Giada's paradise recipes

itryalot Jul 3, 2007 01:46 PM

OK, so I love travel and food shows, so when Giada was having her Santorini and Capri specials, I had my notebook and pen out. Sadly, I never got to use it. There was very little with respect to food and was more of a cultural tour of the areas. I did love most of the foods I saw on the show, especially the profiteroles from Da Paolino. Anyone have the recipes to any of the foods that were shown?

    Food Network hasn't posted any recipes from this series yet, but I found a recipe for ravioli caprese just by googling it (several recipes, in fact).

        Thanks; I did look last week and they omited the recipes but had links to the places visited. This must have been an add on - much appreciated.

          Thanks for this post. I have been looking on Food Netowrks site for the recipe for the fried feta cheese that was done in Santorini.

          Thanks! I have been looking for the ravioli recipe as well. Since I was also more interested in the food, I know I can forget about trying on Jackie O's capri pants.

            Has anyone tried the squash and shrimp combination? Cubes of butternut squash don't seem like a great pairing with shrimp, how do the textures work together?

              I thought the same thing when I saw her make the squash and shrimp combo. Doesn't wet my appetite or sound appealing. But, I think Giada eats only the few bites on the TV show, I'm just not convinced she actually eats a full meal of what she cooks. (who can trust a size zero zero chef?) I do usually like most of her recipes however; in spite of her tiny body!

            Saw a link to the recipes from Capri. Here's a link to what was included for Santorini:

            What I've been looking for is the ratatouille recipe with potatoes when she was on Crete....

            Has anyone seen that one or know of something similar?
