After taking us on journeys into her own kitchen and into kitchens across Italy, Lidia Bastianich now invites us on a road trip into the heart of Italian American cooking today. Traveling around the United States, Lidia visits Italian American communities that created something new out of the recipes passed down from their ancestors.
In Italian cooking, sauces aren't just for pasta. Queen of the cuisine Lidia Bastianich shares eight standout styles that dress up beef, seafood, chicken and vegetables. (And you'll want to eat every one of them with pasta, too.)
