Giada De Laurentiis and her daughter Jade are heading to their beachfront vacation home on the California coast for the summer, and viewers are invited along for all the food and fun in the sun in the new seven-episode series Giada on the Beach. The charming setting has a true vacation vibe, but is close enough to Los Angeles that Giada's family and friends can visit on the weekends. Each week, Giada, Jade and their weekend guests spend time cooking together in the kitchen and around the grill, while sharing stories, laughs and lots of casual and delicious meals.
"Summer weekends with Giada are filled with family, friends and food at the beach," said Courtney White, Executive Vice President, Programming, Food Network and HGTV. "Her delicious recipes and entertaining ideas will inspire her fans to create their own summer memories."
In the premiere episode, Giada, Jade and their friends head out for an early morning paddleboarding session followed by a casual weekend brunch. They then go from the beach to the kitchen to prepare a decadent spread that includes Berries with Spiced Cream, Peach and Bacon Frittata, Lemon Ricotta Pancakes and Lemon Shakeratos for the adults. Upcoming episode themes include Italian Surf 'n' Turf, Pool Party and Clam Bake.
