Lidia's Italy in America

Lidia Bastianich visited Maugeri Farms in Woolwich Township NJ accompanied by her daughter, Tanya, on Wednesday August 4, 2010.

Lidia Matticchio Bastianich is the Emmy-nominated host of the James Beard Award Winning, nationally syndicated cooking series "Lidia’s Italy! & Lidia’s Family Table" on public television.  She is also a world renown chef with her own restaurants, owner of an award winning Italian Winery, and the many recipes she has prepared on her tv shows can be found in her companion cookbooks. 

Lidia's assistant, Lauren, contacted Joe Maugeri, after she visited the farms' website. Lauren and Lidia loved the story about how the farm began back in 1928. Maugeri Farms is presently being run by brothers Sam and Joe Maugeri, who are both 3rd generation farmers.

Anna Maugeri, mother of Sam and Joe, prepared a wonderful meal for Lidia and Tanya to enjoy upon their arrival. For the luncheon, Anna used Jersey Fresh
produce that is grown and harvested right here at Maugeri Farms. Lidia and Tanya joined Anna, Sam, Joe and other members of the Maugeri family for a bountiful lunch.

After a fine meal that included chicken cutlet, roasted red peppers, tomato salad, cucumber salad and eggplant parmesan, Lidia was taken for a tour of the farm guided by Sam and Joe. After touring the tomato and eggplant fields, Lidia was taken to one of the farms' packing houses where plum tomatoes were being packaged for shipment.

The visit to Maugeri Farms will be featured in Lidia's NEW cookbook and new cooking show series, both of which will focus on Italian immigrants and their contributions to the food industry here in America. The new cookbook is scheduled to be released in the spring of 2011. Lidia's new cooking series will air in the fall of 2011.
