February 2021 Cookbook of the Month: LIDIA BASTIANICH MONTH

islandmermaid | Feb 1, 202105:04 PM     7

Brrrrrr! Writing this in the middle of a nor'easter, which only makes this month's cozy Italian food sound more tempting! Wishing all a warm welcome to our February 2021 edition of Cookbook of the Month. We'll be exploring the recipes of Lidia Bastianich this month, including recipes from all of her books plus those found via online sources.

This is our master thread for Lidia month. While we're cooking together this month, this thread will be a place for us to share thoughts and inspiration, ask questions, chat about ingredients, consider our favorite Lidia dishes, and form conclusions as we wrap up the month.
Please use the threads below to report on Lidia's recipes:

Finally, I would like to extend a special welcome to anyone new to Cookbook of the Month (COTM) or returning after a break. This is an inclusive community for home cooks of all levels, even if you're brand new to cooking. We learn (and laugh!) as we cook together, and we are thrilled when newcomers join us for the camaraderie and shared learning of COTM. If you're new, all you have to do is cook a Lidia recipe and post your report on the corresponding thread, with a photo if you wish. Happy cooking to all!
