The Best of Lidia
Lidia Matticchio Bastianich has been a Public Television favorite since her first cooking series premiered in 1998. Over the past eight years, she has become one of America’s most beloved television chefs through her three previous series, Lidia’s Italian Table, Lidia’s Italian-American Kitchen and Lidia’s Family Table, which was recently nominated as “Best Television Food Show - National” by the James Beard Foundation.

Join Lidia as she shares some of her simplest and most delicious recipes from her travels to all of the regions of Italy. The Best of Lidia features family friendly starters, quick pastas and main courses, and, of course, some of Lidia’s favorite desserts!
