Lidia's From Our Family Table to Yours: More Than 100 Recipes Made with Love for All Occasions

A personal collection of more than a hundred favorite family recipes—from Crespelle with Herb Pesto and Penne with Sausage, Mushrooms and Ricotta Vegetable Polpette, to Lidia's Simple Roast Chicken and Mimosa Cake—from the best-selling, award-winning "doyenne of Italian cooking" (The New York Times)

Nothing brings a family together like food. And no one knows food like Lidia Bastianich. In this inviting, deeply personal new cookbook, she shares the dishes she cooks for those she loves the most. This is the first book Lidia has written since the death of her mother, Nonna, who was beloved not just by Lidia’s family but by millions of cookbook and TV fans. With all the family stories and passed-down recipes, in many ways, this book can be seen as a tribute to Nonna.

This sincere, comforting cookbook features:

  • Traditional recipes that graced Lidia's table as a young girl: Crespelle with Herb Pesto, Rigatoni with Sausage, and Cabbage and Penne with Sausage.
  • New creations she makes for her family: Sweet Potato Chickpea Gnocchi with Gorgonzola, Cheesy Baked Chicken Wings, Mushrooms and Ricotta Vegetable Polpette Mimosa Cake.

Bringing together more than a 100 delicious, flavorful, and easy-to-make Italian recipes, From Our Family's Table to Yours is a celebration of the dishes Lidia’s family turns to over and over—and yours will, too. This book is the next-best thing to a seat at Lidia’s table!

 LIDIA MATTICCHIO BASTIANICH is the author of fifteen previous cookbooks and is the Emmy Award–winning host of PBS's Lidia’s Kitchen, which also airs internationally. She is also the co-host of Nonna Senti Che Fame…Pensaci Tu, which airs on Discovery+ in Italy. Lidia owns Becco and several other acclaimed restaurants, and she is a partner in the acclaimed Eataly.
