Open Book/ Open Mind: Lidia Bastianich “My American Dream: A Life Of Love, Family & Food”Adult Events 03/21/2019, 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM
LIDIA MATTICCHIO BASTIANICH is the author of eleven cookbooks, three children’s books, and the Emmy award-winning host of public television’s Lidia’s Kitchen, which also airs internationally. She is also a judge on MasterChef Junior Italy and Italy’s highly rated daily program La Prova del Cuoco. Lidia owns Felidia, Becco, several other restaurants, and is a partner in the acclaimed Eataly. She will come to Montclair to discuss her memoir My American Dream: A Life of Love, Family and Food.
Lidia’s story begins with her upbringing in Pula, a formerly Italian city turned Yugoslavian under Tito’s communist regime. She enjoys a childhood surrounded by love and security–despite the family’s poverty–learning everything about Italian cooking from her beloved grandmother, Nonna Rosa. When the communist regime begins investigating the family, they flee to Trieste, Italy, where they spend two years in a refugee camp waiting for visas to enter the United States–an experience that will shape Lidia for the rest of her life. At age 12, Lidia starts a new life in New York. She soon begins working in restaurants as a young teenager, the first step toward the creation of her own American dream. And she tells in great, vivid detail the fulfillment of that dream: her close-knit family, her dedication and endless passion for food that ultimately leads to multiple restaurants, many cookbooks, and twenty years on public television as the host of her own cooking show. An absolute must-have for the millions of Lidia fans.
Lidia will be in conversation with Marissa Rothkopf Bates, a Montclair based food writer, columnist of the Newsweek “Gadget Lust” column, and a trained chef from the Institute of Culinary Education.
Tickets include a paperback copy of Lidia’s book that can be signed at the event.
