Meet Lidia Bastianich

Meet Lidia Bastianich

Mark your calendars! Beloved Chef Lidia Bastianich will join us on Tuesday, April 17, for a book signing from 3:30-5 p.m.

What better addition to your cookbook collection than a signed copy of Lidia's new memoir? Now, you have the opportunity to meet the Emmy award-winning television host, best-selling cookbook author, restaurateur, and Eataly USA partner at Eataly L.A.!

In My American Dream: A Life of Love, Family, and Food, released on April 3, Lidia takes readers from her life under communism, a dramatic escape across the border and life as a refugee, to her journey to America – penniless – and the launch of her food business. She describes the struggle to open her flagship Manhattan restaurant, Felidia, and all the accolades that followed, including the night that Julia Child and James Beard came to dine (which later resulted in the launch of Lidia’s TV career). The rest, they say, is history.

During the signing, you will also be able to snag copies of her latest cookbook, Lidia's Celebrate like an Italian is filled to the brim with 220 all-new recipes for entertaining with a distinctly Bastianich flare. Whether planning for a romantic picnic for two, a child's birthday party, a holiday gathering, or a simple weeknight family dinner, Lidia’s flavorful, easy-to-follow recipes range from cocktails and desserts to meats, pastas, and polentas. From Pear Bellinis to Carrot and Chickpea Dip, from Campanelle with Fennel and Shrimp to Berry Tiramisu — these are dishes guests will love, no matter the occasion.

Purchase both books and meet the chef for yourself at Eataly L.A. on April 17! No need to register: this book signing is open to all.

A presto!
