Lidias Italian-American Kitchen by Lidia Matticchio Bastianich

Lidia Bastianich, loved by millions of Americans for her simple, delectable Italian cooking, gives us her most instructive and personal cookbook yet.

Focusing on the Italian-American kitchen--the cooking she encountered when she first came to America as a young adolescent--Lidia pays homage to this cuisine of adaptation born of necessity. But she transforms it subtly with her light, discriminating touch, using the authentic ingredients, not accessible to the early immigrants, which are all so readily available today. The aromatic flavors of fine Italian olive oil, imported Parmigiano-Reggiano and Gorgonzola dolce latte, fresh basil, oregano, and rosemary, sun-sweetened San Marzano tomatoes, prosciutto, and pancetta permeate the dishes she makes in her Italian-American kitchen today. And they will transform for you this time-honored cuisine, as you cook with Lidia, learning from her the many secret, sensuous touches that make her food superlative.

Youll find recipes for Scampi alla Buonavia (the garlicky shrimp that became so popular when Lidia served the dish at her first restaurant, Buonavia), Clams Casino (with roasted peppers and good American bacon), Caesar Salad (shaved Parmigiano makes the difference), baked cannelloni (with roasted pork and mortadella), and lasagna (blanketed in her special Italian-American Meat Sauce).

But just as Lidia introduced new Italian regional dishes to her appreciative clientele in Queens in the seventies, so she dazzles us now with pasta dishes such as Bucatini with Chanterelles, Spring Peas, and Prosciutto, and Long Fusilli with Mussels, Saffron, and Zucchini. And she is a master at teaching us how to make our own ravioli, featherlight gnocchi, and genuine Neapolitan pizza.

Laced with stories about her experiences in America and her discoveries as a cook, this enchanting book is both a pleasure to read and a joy to cook from.

Ciao Italia 2007-r1313 Penne with Vodka Sauce

There is a neat little restaurant right up the hill from me on Haight Street called Zare' now closed as of summer that serves up a great Penne alla Vodka. I saw Lidia cooking her Penne alla Vodka on television the other day and last night I was looking for a quick dish to whip up and I decided it was time to try her penne. I made a couple minor changes to the master recipe to cut out a few steps used crushed tomatoes instead of dirtying up the food processor by pureeing them. I also used fresh strips of basil instead of parsley. But it went something like this I heated up some olive oil and dropped in a couple whole cloves of smashed garlic.

A tomato and cream sauce flavored with sweet, salty pancetta. Great sauce! Vodka sauces are so easy, but taste like you spent hours. I know this recipe has had great reviews so far but we did not like this at all. I have never cooked with prosciutto before and maybe it was that flavor that we did not care for. I increased th

So many dishes are creamy, rich and very satisfying. And Italian food is inexpensive and serves plenty. Besides, I have two tomato plants in my garden with lots of ripening fruit. So, I made a couple of batches of marinara sauce Saturday. And I made the sauce expressly with this recipe in mind. I enjoy her recipes. You just know Lidia enjoys cooking, and very much likes what she prepares.
