Author Talk with Lidia Bastianich: “My American Dream: A Life of Love, Family, and Food “
About This Event
You’re invited to an intimate evening with award-winning television host and bestselling author Lidia Bastianich as she talks about her memoir “My American Dream: A Life of Love, Family, and Food”.
Born in Pula, on the Istrian peninsula, Lidia grew up surrounded by love and security, learning the art of Italian cooking from her beloved grandmother. But when a communist regime annexed Istria, Lidia’s family fled to Trieste, where they spent two years in a refugee camp waiting for visas to enter the United States. When she finally arrived in New York, Lidia soon began working in restaurants, the first step leading to her becoming one of the most revered chefs and businesswomen in the country. Heartwarming, deeply personal, and powerfully inspiring, “My American Dream” is the story of Lidia’s close-knit family and her dedication and endless passion for food.
As a special bonus (and pre-release!) Lidia will preview and chat about her newest cookbook “Lidia’s From Our Family Table to Yours: More Than 100 Recipes Made With Love For All Occasions: A Cookbook”.
