See Lidia Bastianich Live on Stage in Toronto on February 10, 2013

February 1, 2013 | By More

Celebrity Chef Lidia Bastianich is bringing her Italian gusto to Canada with Saputo Presents… “Lidia, Live on Stage!” February 10, 2013 at Toronto Centre for the Arts. Beloved celebrity chef and restaurateur Lidia Bastianich has spent the last forty years promoting Italian culture and cuisine across North America. And while adoring Canadian fans have enjoyed watching Lidia on TLN, they’ve never had the opportunity to see her in a Lidia Live performance… until now! Lidia’s culinary roadshow, Lidia Live!, makes its Canadian debut this February 10, 2013 at the Toronto Centre for the Arts in Toronto. And on Monday, February 11, 2013 Lidia will appear at a “by-invitation-only” event in the Teatro Mirella and Lino Saputo at the Leonardo da Vinci Centre in Montreal.  Lidia’s tour is presented by Saputo, the largest dairy processor in Canada which since 1954 has followed a family tradition of producing a wide array of cheeses and dairy products of the utmost quality.

Lidia’s live and interactive performance is being admiringly entitled “Stirring Stories: From the Kitchen and the Heart” and comprises a live cooking demonstration of favorite recipes intertwined with enthralling personal story telling.  Audiences have a rare chance to see Lidia in action, live and in-person, ask her questions and learn tips from the Queen of Italian Cuisine herself! From humble immigrant roots, Lidia’s passion for food, family and pleasing people drove her to build a gastronomic empire consisting of six restaurants, vineyards, a cooking school and Italian food emporium (EATALY in Manhattan), a television production company and a series of best selling cook books.  According to Lidia, “Food for me was a connecting link to my grandmother, to my childhood, to my past. And what I found out is that for everybody, food is a connector to their roots, to their past in different ways.  It gives you security; it gives you a profile of who you are, where you come from”.
