Lidia's latest cookbook, a companion to her 52 part public television series, hit bookshelves on October 23rd, 2001. Her most personal and instructive cookbook to date, Lidia's Italian-American Kitchen, (Knopf) focuses on Lidia's own experience in America, and her connection to Italian-American cuisine. It is the story of how Italian-American cooking is a cuisine born of adaptation and necessity, created by new immigrants who tried to recreate the flavors of their homeland using whatever American ingredients they had access to. It's also a cuisine that has become a beloved part of American culture. Laced with stories about her experiences in America and her discoveries as a cook, this enchanting book is both a pleasure to read and a joy to cook from. The book is currently available on our shopping cart as part of a gift basket or sold alone.
