Travel along with chef Lidia Bastianich as she celebrates the land she calls home. In the new third season of Lidia's Italy, the beloved chef continues her journeys throughout Italy, sampling regional dishes from new and unexplored regions, including Abruzzo, Sardegna, Molise, and more.
Lidia travels to the source of Italy’s delicious food products, including Trentino's Fontina cheese and Emilia Romagna's balsamic vinegar and prosciutto di Parma. In Central Italy’s Le Marche, she visits with philosopher and cheese producer Vittorio Beltrami who shows Lidia his prized sheep and leads her through the process of making his famous Pecorino cheese.
In Lombardy, she ventures beyond the capital city of Milan to meet one of Italy’s most famous contemporary artists, Mario Donizetti. Back in her kitchen, Lidia — frequently joined by family, friends and guest chefs — prepares several recipes seen during her travels.
