Giada's Photo Contest Winner

There's something very special about this photo from Everyday Italian, the new cookbook by Giada De Laurentiis. The first place winner of Giada's Let's Get Cooking Photo Contest is Jarrod Tredway--my 22 year-old nephew. His prize included a live video chat with Giada and a $250 gift certificate from Target.  He's been asked to regularly contribute to her website and take more photos of her food.
