Renowned chef and restaurateur Lidia Bastianich is co-owner of Felidia and Becco, two of Manhattan’s finest restaurants. As host of her own PBS television show, Lidia’s Italy, she travels her native country to visit the farmers, shepherds, foragers, and artisans who produce the local cheeses, meats, olive oils, and wines that define regional Italian cuisine. In her new cookbook, these wonderful, uncomplicated dishes–from Molise, Abruzzo, Calabria, and more–are translated for the home cook.
