On December 4th Lidia will cook live on stage at the Lowell Memorial Auditorium, bringing along guests on a roadtrip into the heart of Italian-American cooking with a live cooking demonstration, Q&A, Lidia’s Italy in America book signing, and raffle. Four lucky audience members will even be invited up on stage to eat at Lidia’s table.
Even before the show begins, audience members will enjoy samples of Banfi wines and Bauli panettone. When everyone is seated in front of the stage, Sisters Carla and Christina Pallotta—local chefs and owners of Nebo in Boston’s North End—will kick off this delicious event with a cooking demonstration!
Following the Pallotta sisters’ demonstration, Lidia will entertain the crowd with a four-course Italian meal cooking demo including stuffed artichokes, rigatoni boscaiolo, chicken sorrentino, and zuppa inglese. The meal is capped off with a delicious homemade panettone.
As always, Lidia will close out the evening with her favorite words: “Tutti a tavola a mangiare!”
On December 5, Lidia will present and sign her book at the Barnes & Noble at the Prudential Center in Boston.
