Lidia Bastianich Coming to Stamford Fairway for WNET Fundraiser with Wine and Food Tastings

24 Oct

Lidia's Italy in America, from wliw.org

My mom’s gonna be so jealous.  Yeah, Lidia Bastianich is coming to Stamford’s Fairway Market on November 5, 2011.  The same Lidia who hosts Lidia Cooks from the Heart of Italy, founder of Bastianich Winery, pasta and sauce maker, and the owner of four restaurants in NYC.  Both Fairway and Lidia have joined foodie forces to help support WNET, providing CT and NY with great programming through THIRTEEN and WLIW21.  The fundraising part will take place at Fairway Wines & Spirits on Friday and Saturday, 11/4-11/5.  Fairway will be donating 10% of their profits from their amazing selection of wine, liquor, and especially beer.  Think we’ll have to pick up some Delirium Tremens, some Rogue Ales, or some Caduceus Vineyards wine while we’re there.

That’s not it, either.  There will be wine tastings going on so you’ll be able to try Lidia’s wine either Friday or Saturday.

Ok, now for the food-crazed fans of Lidia:  she’ll be appearing Saturday to sign her books Lidia’s Italy in America and Nonna Tell Me a Story:  Lidia’s Christmas Kitchen and she’ll be signing her wine bottles, too.

Ok, and now just for the food-crazed people.  There will be tons of free samples of her pasta, her sauces, and some of Fairway’s best food specials for fall.

Make sure you leave early to come to Fairway because we have a feeling this will pack up the store more than it was at its opening.  Ciao,  a presto!
