PORT CHESTER, N.Y. -- Port Chester's Tarry Market is set to host Chef Lidia Bastianich on Monday, Dec. 16.
Bastianich will sign her new cookbook "Lidia's Commonsense Italian Cooking" from noon to 2 p.m. at Tarry Market at 179 Main St. in Port Chester.
"In her beautifully illustrated new cookbook, Lidia Bastianich lays out a comprehensive curriculum of wise cooking tips--from the cutting board to the kitchen table," representatives said. "Channeling the instructive elements from her TV show of the same name, she teaches us that a good dose of common sense is the key ingredient to a stellar meal. As storyteller and chef, she draws on anecdotes to educate and illustrate. Recalling lessons learned from her mother, Erminia, and her grandmother Nonna Rosa, Lidia pays homage to the kitchen sages who inspired her."
