The companion book to her new 52-part PBS series of the same name, Lidia’s Italian-American Kitchen is her most instructive, personal, and inspiring cookbook yet. As always, Lidia’s personal stories and experiences make this book both a pleasure to read and cook from. Old favorites are here, Veal Parmigiana, Spaghetti and Meatballs, Baked Cannelloni, Lasagna, Pizza, and Gnocchi. And, some new ones that are sure to become new favorites in our kitchen include, Bucatini with Chanterelles, Spring Peas and Prosciutto and Linguine with Bacon and Onions. Lots of great hearty dishes and plenty of seafood and sweet endings, something for every season and occasion. Christopher Hirsheimer’s beautiful photographs complete this perfect package.
If your copy of Lidia’s Italian Kitchen is as worn and splattered as ours, then you can’t go wrong adding her latest to your cookbook collection.
Lidia sums up her latest effort in her introduction, “Here I offer you not only the classic Italian-American recipes—your “first love”—but some of my own creations and some classic Italian dishes that have become part of the American culinary culture.”
