An Italian Christmas Eve. A Mexican-American Christmas Day. A Chinese New Year. A Passover Seder. Four holidays, four different tables and traditions. Join celebrity chef and culinary author Lidia Bastianich as she travels across America in a celebration of culture through food.
The first in a series of LIDIA CELEBRATES AMERICA specials coming to PBS, this program explores the American immigrant experience through the revelry of the holidays. In future specials — scheduled for broadcast in 2012 — viewers will join Lidia for a variety of tasty ethnic celebrations, including weddings, rites of passage and celebrations of independence.“At the heart of LIDIA CELEBRATES is my own immigrant experience,” says Lidia. “When I came to this country at the age of 12, I had already spent two years in a political refugee camp. Whenever I meet American families with roots in other countries, I know immediately that we have something in common.”
