Lidia Bastianich Questions

MarianneB88 | Sep 24, 2012 09:13 PM

I have always thought the term chef was only give to people who had training from a culinary school. On a CreateTV commercial she said she was happy to be one of the top chefs on the channel. I have read things about her but nothing was ever mentioned of her going to a culinary school. Does working in a restaurant kitchen allow you to call yourself a chef?

I read an article where it said Lidia wasn't Italian at all but was really of Croatian descent. Is this true? I honestly don't believe she would pretend to be something she wasn't. She seems like a very nice woman. I love her show except when her son is on. He never smiles and is kind of creepy looking, just my opinion.
