Growing up, watching cooking shows on TV was part of my daily regimen. I knew every channel, date, and time, and you could always find me with pen and paper in hand, tuning into one of my favorite cooking programs like, “Lidia’s Italian-American Kitchen,” hosted by Chef, restauranteur and cookbook author, Lidia Bastianich. On the show, Lidia would make these mouth-watering recipes from both her Italian culture and her growing family’s favorite things to eat.
Today, Lidia’s 9th cookbook “Lidia’s Favorite Recipes: 100 Foolproof Italian Dishes” debuts. This updated cookbook of her go-to meals for her family showcases a clear, concise list of recipes that are accessible, affordable, and seasonal. Dishes range from the popular Zuppa di Pesce (seafood stew) to realistic recipes for Veal Ossobuco, cheesy baked shells, and my favorite, Potato Gnocchi. The bright photos alone make you want to start cooking immediately.
“What’s important is that these are all easy and delicious, and the warm, familiar flavors will bring your family straight to the table.”
