Giada de Laurentiis collection debuts at Target

The newest licensee on the block at Target is Giada De Laurentiis of Food Network fame.

As delicious as her Italian recipes are (friends and I have prepared a few), it's the modern style of the serving dishes, glassware and napkins De Laurentiis uses in her television show "Giada at Home" that catches my attention.

The new Giada De Laurentiis for Target collection, debuting this month, includes kitchen knives, sleek stainless steel cookware and creamy white ceramic bakeware. There's also a line of food: pasta, vinegars, sauce and coffee.
