Lidia Bastianich’s Memoir Dinner
$55

Lidia Bastianich’s Memoir Dinner

Celebrity chef, author and restaurateur Lidia Bastianich will welcome guests to Lidia’s Pittsburgh on Tuesday, June 26th, for a special evening dedicated to the launch of her new heartwarming memoir, MY AMERICAN DREAM: A Life of Love, Family, and Food (Knopf, April 2018). Guests can meet Lidia throughout the night and have their books signed as they are treated to an evening of fine food and celebration. The Three-Course Dinner will tell a story from each chapter of her life - from a young girl foraging asparagus with her Grandmother, to spending two years in a refugee camp in Trieste, to becoming one of the first female chefs to break out in the New York restaurant scene.

 

The menu begins with family style Antipasti, including Frittata with Asparagus and Fresh Ricotta and Octopus and Potato Salad; progressing to entrees of Pollo Al Limone, Osso Bucco and Lidia’s Pasta Tasting Trio; and finishing with a family style selection of house-made desserts including Chocolate Ricotta Cheese Cake. A special Children’s menu will also be available.

 

Copies of MY AMERICAN DREAM will be available for purchase and Lidia will be signing books during the event. An ambassador for Italian cuisine and culture and a passionate chef and businesswoman who has grounded her career in her family, Lidia continues to demonstrate the hard work, determination, and optimism that have characterized her entire life. Written with her trademark warmth and spirit, MY AMERICAN DREAM is an inspiring and revelatory memoir from a remarkable woman.
