She's young, funny and can cook up a storm in three-inch cherry stiletto heels.
Bad-girl chef Nadia G. whips up the perfect blend of food and humor for any occasion. Hailed as the "Julia Child of the Net generation," she is the creator and host of the new Cooking Channel series Nadia G’s Bitchin’ Kitchen. Nadia's focus is on accessible haute cuisine, fresh organic ingredients and a hands-on approach that will inspire hip audiences of all ages to Rock the Kitchen!
Trained at the culinary institute of Hard Wooden Spoon Whacks, Nadia G. grew up in a boisterous Italian family that never quite gave up the belief that Casalinga-style cuisine is the center of the universe. "You don't have to look far to taste some of the best food the world has to offer," Nadia says. "I'd pit my grandmother against a 3-star Michelin chef any day."
Nadia G. was also an early pioneer of online skit comedy and ran a boutique web 2.0 strategy/design/branding studio, but something was missing — the food! So she decided to have her cake and design it, brand it, write it, produce it and eat it, too. The rest is herstory.
Nadia G.'s best-selling book, The Bitchin' Kitchen Cookbook: Rock Your Kitchen and Let the Boys Clean Up the Mess(skirt!, 2009), provides recipes and hilarious anecdotes to show that even the most novice cooks can re-create the Nadia G’s Bitchin’ Kitchen cuisine.
Following Bitchin' Kitchen's runaway success across the Web, a best-selling cookbook, and awards for Favorite Mobile Series and Hottest Emerging Digital Brand in Canada — and nomination for Brand of the Year in 2009 — Nadia G.'s brainchild has gone from online to prime time with its American debut on Cooking Channel.
