Filled with tips and techniques collected through years in the kitchen and at the family table, Lidia channels her passion for teaching into a fun and trustworthy curriculum of kitchen wisdom.
WXXI is pleased to present Lidia’s Kitchen, a new daytime cooking show, airing Saturdays at 12 p.m., beginning November 2, 2013 on WXXI-TV. Lidia’s Kitchen is a paean to the importance of mealtime. Over the course of 26 episodes, Daytime Emmy®-winner Lidia Bastianich conjures simple, seasonal and economical dishes with grace, confidence and love. She teaches viewers to draw on their roots, allow for spontaneity, and cultivate a sense of home in the kitchen. Lidia makes rustic staples, including oatmeal biscuits, apple cider-braised pork shoulder, potato pizza, salmon with mustard sauce, country onion soup, lentil country salad and Grandma Rosa's apple cake.
