Description: To the culinary delight of diners at her celebrated New York restaurant Felidia, Lidia Bastianich recreates the distinctive cuisine of her native Istria, which she describes as 50 percent Italian, 35 percent Yugoslavian, and the rest mixed German and Hungarian. 

And now, Lidia has assembled a collection of over 120 simple but sophisticated family recipes that is spiced with tidbits of history and the traditions of her homeland and warmed with memories of her family.  

From simple antipasti to robust meat dishes, from popular pastas to mouthwatering desserts, Lidia is a master chef who prepares every dish with the same loving care and meticulous attention to detail she experienced at home.
