Nadia G Blazing Trails
Nadia G was an early pioneer of the online entertainment industry. For a number of years, she ran her own boutique 2.0 design/branding studio, but always felt 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. In 2007 Nadia G’s Bitchin’ Kitchen debuted as a three minute mobile show. A runaway success, the show quickly gained the attention of mainstream broadcast media. In 2010 Nadia G’s Bitchin’ Kitchen premiered on Food Network Canada and Cooking Channel in the US, making it the first ever first online lifestyle entertainment brand to successfully transition from internet to primetime.
Armed with a crew of misfit food correspondents, a tea towel made of chain mail and a sharp tongue, Nadia ushered in a new alternative to the standard cooking show. In each episode she shares accessible, inspiring recipes to suit nearly any life situation, from breaking up to making up – all peppered with her signature ‘Nadvice.’ Whipping up the perfect blend of food and humor, Nadia likes to say, “We showed the world that there were millions who weren’t being served by vanilla cooking shows. Millions who were hungry for double dark chocolate with fleur de sel.”

Nadia G’s Homegrown Food Philosophy
Fearlessness, patience, creativity and love are Nadia G’s secret ingredients and her kitchen code to success! Trained at the culinary institute of Hard Wooden Spoon Whacks, her passion for food and cooking came from growing up in a boisterous Italian family of cooks and caterers who never quite gave up the belief that Casalinga-style cuisine is the center of the universe. Nadia says, “You don’t have to look far to taste some of the best food the world has to offer. I’d pit my grandmother against a 3-star Michelin chef any day.” As a testament to her culinary home-schooling, Nadia recently showed off her kitchen prowess with appearances on Food Network’s esteemed competition programs, including Chopped All-Stars and Iron Chef America.
Cooking at Home – Bitchin’ Style
In October 2011, Nadia released her second cookbook, Cookin’ For Trouble (Ballantine) in which she shares recipes and cooking tips for beginner and seasoned home cooks. The book provides a creative menu, with chapters like (Dysfunctional) Family Pizza Night, Girl’s Night In and Hi-Speed Suppers. Nadia G’s first book, The Bitchin’ Kitchen Cookbook: Rock Your Kitchen and Let the Boys Clean Up the Mess (skirt!, 2009), was a best-seller. Providing delectable recipes and hilarious anecdotes, the book shows how even the most novice cooks can recreate Nadia G’s Bitchin’ Kitchen cuisine.
