Giada's Perfect Italian Birthday Dinner

You must be signed in to print this content

My birthday is right around the corner, and someone asked me what my perfect meal would be... it got me thinking! I love to throw parties for other people (any excuse to bake a cake, I'm taking advantage!) but when it comes to my own birthday, sometimes I let it slip by without much fuss. So, I thought it would be fun to put together my dream birthday menu -and, yes, there are multiple desserts 😂

Calabrian Fig Jam Crostini

These crostini have it all: sweet, spicy, and savory. They're perfect with a spritz and everyone always loves them (including me!)

Simple Italian Salad

What can I say? My perfect menu needed to include an arugula salad, and this one goes with everything!

Pork Milanese

Perfectly crisp Pork Milanese is one of my all-time favorite dishes... and with a squeeze of lemon? Perfection!

Lemon Spaghetti

This one will be no surprise to my readers... but it's so simply delicious and always takes me back to Capri!

Chocolate Amaretti Cake

It's a toss-up between this cake and my Torta Caprese, but I've been really loving this one lately. And no perfect bday dinner of mine would go without a chocolate cake!

Apulian Almond Cookies

When I visited Puglia, I had cookies just like these, and it was my mission to recreate them as soon as I got home... and I have to say, I succeeded!
