La Cucina Di Lidia - Regional Cuisine from the North of Italy


by Lidia Bastianich and Jay Jacobs, Doubleday, 1990. Lidia's first cookbook! Hardback, with DJ, sepia family photos and color presentation photos throughout.

From Library Journal: "Bastianich is a co-owner (with her husband) and chef of New York's Felidia Ristorante, Jacobs a food journalist and restaurant reviewer; together they have written a remarkable book. Part memoir, part cookbook, it showcases Bastianich's unique cuisine, which is at heart Italian but influenced by Yugoslavian, German, and Hungarian cooking. The text is both intensely personal, with evocative reminiscences of growing up in Istria or of the origins of the various dishes, and knowledgeable and wide-ranging, with discussions of ingredients and difficult techniques and informed wine suggestions. Highly recommended." We agree. Excellent condition: VG+/VG+.
