236R: Up Close and Personal with Lidia Bastianich

Friday, August 08, 2014

This time on America’s Test Kitchen, we interview Lidia Bastianich, the host of Lidia’s Italy, about everything from how she ended up working with actor Christopher Walken in a bakery in Queens to how to make a quick supper from almost nothing. We’ll be tasting hummus, and we’ll find out what’s hot and what’s not in the world of kitchen gadgets. Then we’ll head into the test kitchen to learn how to make the best homemade granola. And of course, we’ll be taking your calls to answer all of your cooking questions.
