Celebrate Columbus Day with my new book!

Grandma with commonsense

Celebrate Columbus Day by giving your family and friends (or yourself) the ultimate Italian-American gift: Lidia’s Commonsense Italian Cooking.

You all know I’m a teacher at heart, and my new book lays out a comprehensive curriculum of cooking tips–from the cutting board to the kitchen table.  These are lessons I learned from my mother, Erminia (above), and her mother, Nonna Rosa, and now I’m passing them on to you in the form of 150 simple, seasonal recipes. Order your signed copy here!

I’m also excited to announce that the the companion public television series, Lidia’s Kitchen, will begin airing this month as well.
