I’ve interviewed tons of TV personalities over the years — some impressed me, others disappointed me. Lidia Bastianich is an impeccable pro! The warm, enthusiastic, passionate ‘Lidia’ you see on PBS is the exact person who came to my house to shoot a cooking segment. I answered the ring at my door, and felt like I was greeting an old friend.

She was incredibly warm and friendly, and her passion for Italy and its amazing food were contagious. I’ve got more on her visit in my blog, Tanjents. Meantime, enjoy her wonderful cooking demonstrations here… And, check out her delicious chicken dish and chocolate dessert in my recipe section. You’ll also want to see her new cookbook Lidia Cooks from the Heart of Italy — wonderful recipes! Many of them pair nicely with the Bastianich wines too.
