It's official!! The voting poll is closed and the people have spoken. The new chef we will be cooking along with for the next six months is the one and only, Jamie Oliver ! Jamie's passion and love of food, along with his endless bevy of cookbooks and recipes, is going to make for an exciting and adventurous six months. We can't wait!
But, before we get started on our new adventure with Jamie, we have two more wonderful weeks left with the Princess of Italian Cooking, Giada De Laurentiis.
This week at I Heart Cooking Clubs it's Spud Week! To ring in St. Patrick's Day, we are combining our love of Giada with our love of the ever popular potato. Sounds like a match made in heaven!
Whether your spuds are the star of the show, tucked away in a stew, or sitting on the side lines, there is sure to be a recipe for you. Giada has a large array of potato recipes ranging from side dishes, to soups and stews, to homemade potato chips, and even a recipe for tilapia with purple potato crust.
You might even choose to go all out and make gnocchi from scratch. Giada has recipes for both traditional potato gnocchi, as well as recipes for sweet potato gnocchi. Don't have time to make the gnocchi from scratch, no problem! Grab a box at the market and whip up one of Giada's many gnocchi recipes. The sky's the limit!!
