Premise: Giada De Laurentiis lets her hair down as she demonstrates her love for cooking and entertaining California-style in this disarmingly laid-back show that allows De Laurentiis to venture far afield from her usual Italian culinary fare. Whether it's for a festive bash or an intimate meal, De Laurentiis invites friends and families to her house for a day of food, fun and memories. She also heads out to locations such as beaches for some of her culinary get-togethers.
