Lidia's from Our Family Table to Yours

Lidia's from Our Family Table to Yours is the mouthwatering 16th cookbook from chef and PBS personality Lidia Matticchio Bastianich (My American Dream). Written with Tanya Bastianich Manuali (Healthy Pasta, with Joseph Bastianich), it is a warmhearted tour through the recipes that have sustained Bastianich's family over the years. Alongside personal photos and anecdotes about her mother, her children and grandchildren, and other relatives, Bastianich shares the dishes they love. Readers will learn to make her mother's favorite Eggplant Rollatini; the Spicy Crispy Roasted Cauliflower her grandchildren adore; and plenty of traditional pasta dishes. Bastianich includes notes about the recipes' regional origins, the fresh ingredients she swears by, and which members of her family are partial to lobster, eggplant, or rabbit. Accessible and straightforward, and studded with helpful hints, Lidia's family cookbook will be a welcome addition to any Italian (or Italian food-loving) kitchen. --Katie Noah Gibson, blogger at Cakes, Tea and Dreams
