Lidia Celebrates America
"Holiday Tables & Traditions"
Chef and culinary author Lidia Bastianich begins her new series of specials that celebrate culture through food by exploring the American immigrant experience through the revelry of the holidays. She first prepares a traditional Italian Christmas Eve La Vigilia (feast of the seven fishes) wth actor Stanley Tucci. Then she visits a Mexican-American holiday celebration in San Antonio, Texas, takes in Chinese New Year in San Francisco, and attends a Passover Seder in New York City.G
