What is Giada De Laurentiis’ Net Worth and Salary?
Giada De Laurentiis is an Italian-American chef, producer, and TV personality who has a net worth of $30 million. Her own Food Network programs “Everyday Italian” and “Giada at Home” are what she is most well-known for hosting. A lot of Giada’s books have achieved great success.
Giada Pamela De Benedetti, fondly called Giana De Laurentiis, was born in Rome, Italy, on August 22, 1970. She is the oldest child of performer Veronica De Laurentiis and producer/actor Alex De Benedetti.
Eloisa, a sister, and Igor and Dino Alexander II, two brothers, make up her three younger siblings. Dino De Laurentiis, her maternal grandpa, was a well-known filmmaker who also had his own eatery, the DDL Food show.
As a child, Giada worked in the kitchen a lot, including at her grandfather’s eatery. Following her parents’ divorce, her mother moved the three of them to Southern California.
They all adopted the last name De Laurentiis, which belonged to their mother.
While living in California, Giada attended Marymount High School in Los Angeles. At the University of California, Los Angeles, she continued her studies and graduated in 1996 with a bachelor’s degree in social anthropology.
Giada De Laurentiis relocated to Paris, France, after finishing her undergraduate studies to attend Le Cordon Bleu. Initially, she wanted to work as a pastry chef in a professional setting.
After completing her studies, Giada went back to Los Angeles and started working in a number of neighborhood eateries, including Spago (owned by Wolfgang Puck).
Her next job was as a food stylist. She first caught the notice of the Food Network while she was a food stylist; they got in touch with her after she styled an article for “Food & Wine” magazine in 2002.
The Food Network then presented her with the chance to host her own program there. On April 5, 2003, “Everyday Italian” had its premiere.
Initially, soon after the program debuted, the Food Network experienced outrage from the public, with many people charging that the program used a model or actress to pass for a chef rather than a real, experienced one.
The network and De Laurentiis were not deterred by the criticism, and in 2006, she started hosting the program “Behind the Bash”. The program, which was created by Atlas Media Corp., looks at how large, expensive events like award ceremonies are catered.
Her third show made its debut on the Foot Network in January 2007, and she shows no signs of slowing down.
Giada De Laurentiis traveled around various American locations for this television program, “Giada’s Weekend Getaways,” taking viewers to her favorite culinary venues there.
Among the places highlighted on the show are Seattle, Washington; South Beach, Florida; San Francisco; Napa; and Jackson Hole, Wyoming.
Giada De Laurentiis has also hosted other shows like “Giada at House,” in which she cooks meals for her loved ones in a setting imitating her own house, and “Giada Entertains,” which on June 26, 2020, won a Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Culinary Series.
Giada De Laurentiis has also received the Outstanding Culinary Host Daytime Emmy Award in 2020 and the Outstanding Lifestyle Host Daytime Emmy Award in 2008.
Additionally, she has appeared on a multitude of other shows, including an episode of “Iron Chef America” in 2006 where she competed alongside Bobby Flay, and lost to Rachael Ray and Mario Batali; the two-part Food Network special “Giada in Paradise”, where she traveled to Santorini, Greece, and Capri, Italy; the show “The Next Food Network Star”, as a guest judge on the third season, an on-set mentor on the sixth season, and regular judge on the seventh and eighth seasons. De Laurentiis has also done some work as a voice actress.
She voiced the character Paulette on the animated children’s show “Handy Manny”; the character Gelata in the US version of the Disney special “Pixie Hollow Bake Off” (2014); and voiced a fictionalized version of herself in the animated movie “Scooby-Doo! and the Gourmet Ghost” (2018).
In May 2003, Giada De Laurentiis wed fashion designer Todd Thompson. Jade Marie De Laurentiis-Thompson, their lone child together, was born in March 2008.
Giada De Laurentiis said that she and Thompson had genuinely parted ways in December 2014, and their divorce was finally formalized in September 2015. Shane Farley, a TV producer, and De Laurentiis have been romantically associated since late 2015.
Giada invested $6.9 million in a house in the Pacific Palisades section of Los Angeles in March 2016. She invested $4.86 million in a second Palisades residence in August 2019.
Other Business and Projects
The Academic Barilla brand of Italian gourmet pasta was introduced in 2008 as a result of a partnership between De Laurentiis and the Barilla Group. It was the first time a celebrity has worked with Barilla to create a gourmet product line.
After that, she teamed up with Target in 2010 to introduce a special collection of kitchen accessories.
A small selection of food items like sauces and pasta were among the highlighted products, along with stainless steel pots and pans, cutlery, and culinary gadgets.
Additionally, Giada De Laurentiis has opened a number of eateries. In July 2014, the GIADA brand’s debut occurred.
In Nevada’s Las Vegas, it is housed in The Cromwell. Italian food with California influences can be found on the GIADA menu, and “Wine Spectator” awarded the restaurant’s wine list the year’s Best of Award of Excellence.
It is possible to book a cooking lesson at GIADA to learn how to prepare a four-course meal from the GIADA chefs, as well as attend special events like “Book Club Brunch,” where guests can sample and attempt dishes from De Laurentiis’s volumes.
Early in 2018, De Laurentiis debuted Pronto by Giada in Caesars Palace to serve visitors to Las Vegas who were searching for a more relaxed, speedy dining choice.
