Nothing brings a family together like food. And no one knows food like Lidia Bastianich. In her new cookbook, Lidia’s From Our Family Table to Yours, she shares the dishes she cooks for those she loves the most. It’s the first book Lidia has written since the death of her mother, Nonna, who was beloved by her family and millions of cookbook and TV fans. Filled with family stories and passed-down recipes, in many ways it can be seen as a tribute to Nonna.

The book features the traditional recipes that graced Lidia's table as a young girl (Prosciutto and Onion Frittata, Rigatoni with Sausage and Cabbage) alongside the new creations (Sweet Potato Chickpea Gnocchi with Gorgonzola, Cheesy Baked Chicken Wings) that she makes for her children and grandchildren today. Bringing together more than a hundred easy-to-make Italian recipes, From Our Family's Table to Yours is a celebration of the dishes Lidia’s family turns to over and over—and the next-best thing to a seat at her kitchen table.

Join Lidia in conversation with Mary Beth Albright, correspondent and editor at The Washington Post, as she discusses favorite recipes and how food has shaped her family memories.
