WQLN PBS, is partnering with award-winning celebrity chef, author, and host of “Lidia’s Kitchen” (APT, WGBH) Lidia Bastianich for its live virtual Taste of Fame
culinary fundraising experience on May 21.
Taste of Fame
and WQLN PBS invites guests to be part of this live culinary journey from the comfort and safety of their homes. Participating PBS stations are happy to work with Sunbasket who will deliver meal kits to homes, so guests can cook along with Lidia, who will participate from her home kitchen in Boston. The Sunbasket meal kit includes Spinach-Artichoke Dip with Traditional Pita for an appetizer, ingredients to create Lidia’s Springtime Asparagus Risotto, and Simple Dark Chocolate Bars for an after-dinner snack.
The experience begins with a cocktail Q&A with Chef Lidia, moderated by Chef Julia Collin Davison of “America's Test Kitchen” at 6:30pm. Guests are invited to ask Lidia a question in the Zoom chat while Lidia creates Fragoncello, one of her favorite spring cocktails. Following the cocktail Q&A at 7:00pm, Lidia will guide guests through a cooking lesson to create a springtime asparagus risotto dish. When the cooking lesson ends, guests will have the opportunity to eat with friends in private Zoom rooms.
