Lidia's Commonsense Italian Cooking

Lidia Bastianich will be spending some time in Stamford on Saturday, 12/14 at Fairway Market.  From 1-3 pm you can meet her at the store and she’ll sign your copies of her brand new book, Lidia’s Commonsense Italian Cooking:  150 Delicious and Simple Recipes Anyone Can Master.  This brand new cookbook is her 8th and highlights tips and tricks to prepare beautiful and simple recipes that go with the seasons.  And, something else that’s exciting about Lidia’s Commonsense Italian Cooking is that she co-wrote it with her daughter, Tanya Bastianich Manuali.  That’s Lidia for ya:  keeping it in the family.  While there, you’ll be able to try out and buy some of Lidia’s pastas and sauces, too, with demos and tastings.

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!
