About the Author
Nadia Giosia, better known as “Nadia G,” is the deliciously twisted mastermind behind Bitchin’ Kitchen. She, along with the rest of the BK crew, recently won a 2007 WAVE Award for “Favorite Mobile Comedy Series,” and Web clips of Bitchin’ Kitchen can be downloaded by Verizon V-cast users in the States and numerous mobile phone providers across Canada. The Montreal-based comedian, actress, and graphic designer loves to eat, loves to cook, and loves to let the boys clean up the mess. Nadia G loathes Rachel Ray, and proclaims, “The days of Prozac-happy lifestyle hostesses are over. Welcome to the next generation of savoir-vivre.”

I've complained in the past that there's a lack of culinary humor out there. Nadia Giosia has done a remarkably fun (and borderline lunatic) job of helping to remedy that with her over-the-top screen presence and her tasty and creative recipes, and this book, a loud, often-hilarious menu cookbook that includes transcripts of the dialogue from the show along with frequent cheesecake shots of Nadia and three of her four male cast members, captures the spirit of the TV show perfectly, then goes it one better by concentrating the insanity into wall-to-wall photo collages loaded with food porn, costumes, and sight gags. The food is heavily Italian-accented, but well-chosen for each episode theme, with a strong New American (New Canadian?) accent.
If I have any complaints with it, it's that Nadia sometimes overplays her guidette character, using slang that I can only assume is rather more common in Canada than it is here in the US. That, and Hans... ick. Just too much 'bag in that character. (But hey, maybe the female and/or gay readers appreciate him more than I would.) But the food is excellent and the writing is fun and off-the-wall. Grab it, and use it to follow along with the show.
She is very funny and entertaining. An "Edgy" food show if there is such a thing, the Punk Rock version of a cooking show. Like Anthony Bourdain if he were a smokin hot italian chic but happier and with a better sense of humor.
If you like cooking shows with humor whether you would consider actually making the dishes or not, you will like the show. The book is filled with a lot of humor as well as recipes at least some of which I would actually try and make.
I would recommend this for a foodie, and get bonus points for them being a Nadia G fan.
