Lidia's Italy: Week 1

Yesterday marked the end of the first full week of filming on the set of Lidia's Italy. The dishes Lidia (and her guests) create in the 26 episode series showcase recipes included in her latest cookbook- Lidia Cooks From The Heart Of Italy. The colorful cookbook, coauthored with Lidia's daughter and knowledgable art historian Tanya Bastianich Manuali, contains 175 regional recipes and will be available for purchase on October 20th.

The following is a small sample of some of the amazing food I was able to taste this past week:

Pasta with baked cherry tomatoes

Provolone turnovers drizzled with honey from the Bastianich apiary

Fresh tacozze pasta with sea bass

Torta with prunes

Chicken catanzarro style

A lunch time plate with a sampling of swordfish bagnara style, and eggplant in tomato sauce

Calabrese salad

Eggplant onions and potatoes

Cherry jam tart

Rice and zucchini crostada

Tuna genova style

Stuffed vegetables

Almond biscottini

Bread salad with summer vegetables

  8. Definitely believe that which you stated.
    Your favorite reason appeared to be on the net the simplest thing to
    be aware of. I say to you, I definitely get annoyed while people consider worries that they
    just don't know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and also defined out the whole thing without having side effect , people can take a signal. Will probably be back to get more. Thanks
