Description

The votes are in! The Bertolizzi siblings are headed to Philadelphia for their latest great culinary adventure.

When Zia Donatella comes to live with the Bertolizzi family, little do Alfie and his older sister, Emilia, know what's in store for them. Zia Donatella is determined to show them how a home-cooked meal is better than even the best takeout pizza. And when Zia's plan actually transports Alfie and Emilia to famous food cities around the world, they learn firsthand how food can not only take you places but also bring you back home.

In this adventure, Zia sends the entire Bertolizzi family to the city of brotherly love - Philadelphia! Known as the "birthplace of America," Philadelphia welcomes the family with its historic blend of colonial buildings, national landmarks, and equally revolutionary cuisine. Their Philadelphia tour guide, Emma, shows the family that foodie destinations like Reading Terminal Market and 9th Street have as rich a history as the Liberty Bell.

Later, she honed her skills at Le Cordon Bleu, a very cool cooking school in Paris, France. Many puff pastries and a graduation later, Giada began working in a fab restaurant called Spago in Los Angeles. Shortly after, she founded her very own catering company. She is now the Emmy Award-winning star of Food Network's Everyday Italian, Giada's Weekend Getaways, Giada in Paradise, and Giada at Home, as well as the author of seven cookbooks. She lives in sunny Los Angeles. Giada loves the colors "pesto-green" and "eggplant-purple," and Nutella pancakes are her favorite treat to share with her daughter, Jade.
