She is the owner of the New York City restaurant Felidia, among others, and she gives lectures on Italian cuisine throughout the country. She lives on Long Island, New York.

Tanya Bastianich Manuali received her Ph.D. in Renaissance art history from Oxford University. In 1996 she started Experienze Italiane, a travel company that arranges food, wine, and art tours to Italy. She also co-authors books with her mother, Lidia; manages Lidia's product line; and serves as the cultural and art consultant for the art series. She lives on Long Island.

More About the Author

Lidia Bastianich is an Emmy award-winning public television host, a best‐selling cookbook author, restaurateur, and owner of a flourishing food and entertainment business. Lidia has married her two passions in life - her family and food, to create multiple culinary endeavors alongside her two children, Joseph and Tanya. Lidia's cookbooks include Lidia's Commonsense Italian Cooking, Lidia's Favorite Recipes, Lidia's Italy in America, Lidia Cooks from the Heart of Italy, and Lidia's Italy--all companion books to the three‐time Emmy‐nominated television series Lidia's Kitchen, Lidia's Italy in America and Lidia's Italy. Lidia has also published Lidia's Family Table, Lidia's Italian‐American Kitchen, Lidia's Italian Table and La Cucina di Lidia. Lidia is the chef/owner of four acclaimed New York City restaurants ‐ Felidia, Becco, Esca and Del Posto, as well as Lidia's Pittsburgh and Lidia's Kansas City. She is also founder and president of Tavola Productions, an entertainment company that produces high‐quality broadcast productions. Along with her son, Joe Bastianich, Mario Batali, and Oscar Farinetti, the team opened Eataly, the largest artisanal Italian food and wine marketplace in New York City. Lidia also has a line of pastas and all natural sauces called LIDIA'S, and has just recently launched an exclusive line of ready-made home-style meals with Whole Foods Market in the Northeast. Lidia's first children's book, Nonna Tell Me a Story: Lidia's Christmas Kitchen, was inspired by her five grandchildren. The second installation in the series, Lidia's Family Kitchen: Nonna's Birthday Surprise, was released in the Spring of 2013. Lidia gives freely of her time and knowledge, and is active member of society who participates in community service activities and special events on behalf of several foundations and Public Television.

Format: Hardcover
Lidia has created a cookbook that showcases Italian-American food from across America. She visits cities from the Bronx to San Diego, Philadelphia, Baltimore and Kansas City. She expands the idea of Italian food to include Baltimore's famous Faidley's crab cakes which will be one of the greatest recipes you could ever get and muffuletta sandwiches from New Orleans.

She tells a bit about each recipe and even more about the communities she visited and the people she met. There are few pictures of the recipes themselves. There are many of Lidia and the places she went to. Included are recipes for: antipasti, zuppe, sandwiches and pizza, salads, pasta, vegetables and sides, seafood, meat and desserts. She incorporates a list of episodes from her television series `Lidia's Italy in America', seasons 1 and 2 and recipes from the series. An index lists by recipe name and ingredient.

The recipes are not difficult, they are written out clearly with the number of servings. We have already enjoyed; Italian American meatloaf, almond pine nut cookies and lemon granita and of course the crab cake recipe is marvelous.
This is a book that many would want to add to their cookbook collection if they are fans of Lidia and/or Italian cooking.

I have all of Lidia's books and this one just may be the best for the American of Italian descent or any fan of Italian food. The Americanized recipes are fantastic yet still hold true to their Italian roots. So many are right from my Grandmothers kitchen watching her cook as a kid that the memories are flooding in. You will not be disappointed with this book by no means.

I recently purchased this cookbook and I am so glad I did. I have been watching Lidia Bastianich for years on PBS. I love her passion for food and her enthusiam for not only creating it but also sharing it with family and friends. She makes food seem warm and inviting. I have made three recipes so far from this book and I have enjoyed them all immensely. The Italian Wedding Soup was perfect for warming me up on a cold day. I especially enjoyed the flavor in the meatballs. The penne with vodka sauce was very delicious. I loved that there was just the right amount of vodka to give it flavor but not be overpowering as it sometimes can be in other recipes. I also made the Chicken Trombino. What a great way to relieve the monotony of weeknight cooking! I cannot recommend this book enough. I will definitely purchase her other cookbooks in the future.

I have all of Lidia's cookbooks, use them frequently, and watch her show faithfully. I found this publication to be a little disappointing. The concept was a good idea but I would rather have seen a selection of recpies from Italian families who are not necessarily in the restaurant business. It's already on the bookshelf.

I had purchased Lidia's Italy and loved the book and the TV series. The recipes I made (and it was a lot of them) were great. So, when Lidia's Italy in America came out, I had to have it. Lidia did it again with another great cookbook that Italian Americans and non-Italians can relate to. Many of these dishes we have had a home and in restaurants. As we get older, a lot of the old recipes are not carried forward to the next generation. Thanks to Lidia they are now carried on. The stories about the Italian American areas are fantastic and very interesting. The book covers a huge variety of Italian American foods; there's antipasti, soup, salad, sandwiches, pizza, salads, pasta, vegetables, seafood, meats, and desserts. It's all in there. I can't wait to start cooking my way through this one. Lidia is a great chef who truly enjoys what she is doing. We are all so lucky to have her.

I don't buy lots of cook books, but happened to see Lidia on tv and just had to get this book. Though I now live in the midwest, I grew up in New Jersey with many Italian friends. Lidia has recipes for foods I remember eating at these friend's houses. These recipes are authentic Italian American cooking. Some are challenging, but all are fabulous. My family gets excited when they know I'm trying something from Lidia's book. A side benefit is all the wonderful stories she shares about her travels through the USA as she gathered the recipes. What a terrific book!

This is one of Lidia's cookbooks at it's best, lots of wonderful recipes - Some classic from her older cookbooks but also lots & lots of new recipes we are so excited to try! I bought this book for my Mom & had it autograhed by Lidia herself at one of her book signings at Eatly in NYC! She is my Mom's favorite chef & Mom was exstatic with this Christmas gift for sure! Gotta LOVE Lidia!!!
