An Italian Lunchbox
lidia's kitchen

In Italy, lunch is just as important as dinner. Italians prefer to sit down for a leisurely lunch, but in this episode, Lidia shares some lunch-on-the-go ideas to make the American tradition more Italian. In this episode, Lidia shares her Shaved Fennel, Red Onion, and Prosciutto Cotto Salad. It's packed with texture, color, and protein to make a nourishing lunch. And for an easy, packable sweet finish, she makes a Cherry Jam Tart with Wild Cherries from Emilia Romagna. She also shares her Prosciutto, Scallion, and Egg Sandwich with her grandson Ethan via zoom.
