From Italy to Your Table NEW

When Lidia sits down for a meal in Italy, there are some dishes that she tastes that bring her such joy... they're just too good not to share with us! Like her rendition of Mussel Bruschetta, inspired by her favorite restaurant on the beach in Fiumicino. And grandson Lorenzo stops by for an Olive Oil Tasting, leaving us feeling more confident when it comes to this liquid gold. Then Lidia shares a heavenly traditional dish from the Amalfi Coast, Spaghetti in Lemon Cream Sauce. The acidity of the lemons cuts the fat of the cream, making a beautifully balanced dish.
