A Delicious Surprise
Yesterday I talked about Italian culinary icon, Lidia Bastianich and her exciting new Italian travel venture. But now, bringing Italy to you, Lidia writes Nonna’s Birthday Surprise, a sincere tribute to the seasonally rich fare that nurtured her childhood. The story follows Lidia’s five grandchildren in their journey to prepare a surprise birthday meal for Lidia’s mother, Nonna Mima. With her beautiful voice, Lidia captivates novice and veteran chefs. Leaving French fries, chocolate milk and pancakes behind, Lidia inspires children to cook with fresh ingredients. Bring the taste of farmland Italy to your table with Pasta Primavera, complete with your kids’ favorite vegetables, or Potato Gnocchi, kneaded, shaped and cut out by your little chefs. Lidia brings her family’s most joyful meals to yours in Nonna’s Birthday Surprise, available for purchase for $17.
