America's favorite Italian-American cook, Lidia Bastianich, shares the story of the Christmases she used to celebrate in Italy with her five grandchildren.

When Lidia was a child, she spent Christmas with her grandparents, where she learned to cook with her Nonna Rosa by preparing food in their smokehouse and kitchen. Lidia and her brother would also find a big beautiful juniper bush to cut down for their holiday tree. And they made their own holiday decorations with nuts, berries, and herbs they collected for their meals.

This delightful picture book is filled with the story of Lidia's Christmas traditions, delicious recipes, and decorating ideas all perfected over the years by Lidia and her family.

I love Lidia's cookbook, and was so happy she wrote a children's Christmas book. She instills family tradition, food, and spending time together. That's the best Christmas present anyone would love.

I was pleased to find this book/cookbook as a gift for a dear friend who is Italian, is a grandmother who is called Nonna and is interested in cooking (especially with her grandchild).
