Chef Giada De Laurentiis was surrounded by celebri-friends and family at the launch of her cookbook, "Weeknights With Giada."

De Laurentiis, a contributor to NBC's "Today" show, mingled with "Today" pals Matt Lauer and Hoda Kotb, who all got a taste of some of the dishes from the book, at Monday's event at the Andaz Hotel.

But the cutest guest there was definitely De Laurentiis' 3-year-old daughter, Jade.
