This week’s special guest is famed chef Lidia Bastianich.
For our 25th anniversary my husband and I had the pleasure of dining at her restaurant Felidia in NYC and she personally served and talked with us, not only is she talented but a beautiful person as well!
As a child growing up in northeastern Italy, Lidia Matticchio Bastianich recalls being “swept up” in the excitement of the harvesting of grapes from her grandparents’ vines. Today, she writes best-selling cookbooks, stars in an Emmy-nominated cooking show on public television is chef/owner of half a dozen acclaimed restaurants across the U.S. Bastianich also produces award-winning wines in Friuli and Maremma, Italy, with her son, Joseph.
Although she was raised appreciating wine and food together, Bastianich understands that most Americans were not. In her latest cookbook, Lidia’s Italy in America — a companion to her public television series — Bastianich offers tips on developing an appreciation for wine, using wine in cooking and pairing wines with foods, including five of her own recipes.
Start small: “There is so much out there, so many countries that produce wine, I can understand how people can be intimidated,” she says. “I think the best thing is to stick to one country at a time, and just begin tasting wine
Ask the experts: Bastianich recommends seeking advice from those who know wines well — whether it is the sales clerk in the wine store, the sommelier in the restaurant, the expert on a television show or the author of a wine book. Then just relax and taste.
Use all of your senses: “You want to smell the aroma, see its color, roll it around in your mouth, use all of your senses,” she says. “Tasting and developing a palate for anything is like developing a great library. You need to take it volume by volume, familiarize yourself with each and store it away.”
Skip the cooking wine: Bastianich cautions against using products marketed as “cooking wine,” recommending instead a quality wine that you would want to drink on its own. “Remember that what you want is the flavor of the wine,” she says. “Whether it’s a nice, aromatic white wine or a really jammy red wine, you want those flavors to add to whatever you’re cooking.”
