What’s Cooking on the Navajo Nation? Celebrity Chef Lidia Bastianich Finds Out
One of the best-loved chefs on television, Lidia Bastianich (PBS: Lidia Celebrates America), herself an immigrant from Pula, Croatia (then Italy), traditionally visits other immigrant populations to share in a cultural cooking experience. Although food is the common denominator, she says her show goes beyond cooking—“It is a celebration of the rich diversity of cultures across the United States. Food is the basis of who we are; it helps us to understand each other better,” she says.
