Lidia Bastianich Cooks Early for All Ages at Shutters on the Beach — Postponed!

by Jessica on March 23, 2013


Imagine growing up in a household with a mom like Italian cooking legend Lidia Bastianich. No wonder her son has become a leading restaurateur and an all around big deal food and wine guy, while her daughter earned a doctorate in art history from Oxford before then collaborating with Lidia on various food, travel, and publishing enterprises. Talk about an incredible path to join.

So it’s pretty exciting that for those of us whose parents most definitely didn’t rock that hard in either the professional or home kitchen can join Lidia for a family meal in Santa Monica at Shutters on the Beach hotel’s Coast restaurant (the site of our annual beloved Christmas Eve gathering) this Wednesday, March 27th. The all-ages Lidia Cooks for Little Ones (and Parents too!) dinner has two smartly timed seatings at 4:00 and 6:00 p.m. and features two separate menus. Some folks might not approve of that approach, but how can you not be curious about how Lidia does mozzarella sticks? The adult dinner is $35 each, the kids’ costs $20 per, inclusive of valet parking and a copy of Lidia’s new children’s book, Lidia’s Family Kitchen: Nonna’s Birthday Surprise.

I’ve posted the full menu after the jump. Call (310) 587-1707 to reserve.

Update: The event has been postponed. Stay tuned for rescheduling info!
