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.
