Lidia Bastianich—one of the most beloved chefs and authors in America—presents her most accessible and affordable cookbook to date, a gathering of the recipes that have become her go-to meals for her very own family. But these are not only Lidia’s personal favorites; this book is a love letter to her fans. Here, she is giving us the recipes for dishes that you have raved and written about over and over—the best, the most comforting, and the most delicious dishes in her repertoire.

     In Lidia’s Favorite Recipes, you’ll find a fresh take on more than 100 of Lidia’s signature and irresistibly reliable dishes, including:

·         Fried Mozzarella Skewers—Spiedini alla Romana

·         Escarole and White Bean Soup—Zuppa di Scarola e Cannellini

·         Ziti with Broccoli Rabe and Sausage—Ziti con Broccoli Rabe e Salsicce

·         Baked Stuffed Shells—Conchiglie Ripiene al Forno

·         Eggplant Parmigiana—Melanzane alla Parmigiana

·         Savory Seafood Stew—Zuppa di Pesce  

·         Chicken Cacciatore—Pollo alla Cacciatore        

·         Veal Ossobuco with Barley Risotto—Ossobuco di Vitello con Risotto d’Orzo

·         Cannoli Napoleon—Cannolo a Strati      

·         Limoncello Tiramisù—Tiramisù al Limoncello

From the classic sauces to the delicious desserts, these recipes have been revised and updated to be more concise and clear, but just as soul-satisfying as ever. With new information about the affordability, seasonality, and nutritional value of the ingredients, this book shows there is no question why these dishes are the easiest and most enjoyable to bring to the family table for your most memorable moments. Beautifully illustrated throughout with full-color photographs, Lidia’s Favorite Recipes will give both new cooks and longtime fans something extraordinary to celebrate. 

Review:

"In her latest cookbook, Bastianich, combines more than 100 of her signature dishes with new and old favorites. Her coauthor is daughter Tanya, who also manages her mother's product line. Bastianich encourages readers to cook for family and friends, and each recipe makes family-sized portions. Dishes are simple, pleasing, and accessible. Straightforward sections such as appetizers; sandwiches and pizzas; pastas, polenta and risottos; seafood, poultry, and meats include every Italian recipe you would imagine finding in a 'Favorite recipe' book. Readers will find typical crowd pleasers like baked clams oreganata, pizza Margherita, spaghetti and meatballs, and veal scallopine. The authors also include traditional Italian dishes for the more adventurous chef like octopus and potato salad and lamb stew with olives. The final chapter is a roundup of delightful desserts, like chocolate biscotti pudding and limoncello tiramisu." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
