What cookbook author and TV personality Lidia Bastianich lacks in professional vocal skills she more than makes up for with her warm, honest delivery. Bastianich highlights a life filled with love, family, and the food of Italy. Just months after she was born in northern Italy, her small village became part of Communist Yugoslavia. Despite political turmoil, Lidia had a secure life within a caring family, in which food was another name for love. When the family was threatened by the Communist regime, they fled, first to a refugee camp in Trieste, and, eventually, to Manhattan. This audiobook is an immigrant story that reminds each new generation of the sacrifices made by their predecessors so that their lives would be better. Bastianich's remembrances are wholly satisfying. S.J.H. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2018]
