Flavors That Define Us | Lidia Celebrates America


Tue May 30 at 9PM on WKAR-HD 23.1 & STREAMING | Beloved chef and Italian immigrant, Lidia Bastianich, travels from big cities to small towns in rural America to share the inspiring stories of first, second, and third-generation Americans.

These Americans are forging their own way, and shaping the shifting definition of what it means to be an American. Common among this nation of 46 million immigrants is the fact that these individuals are often faced with the question of how much of their culture to bring with them, and what to leave behind. What’s clear is that as America grows more diverse than ever before, many immigrants are making different calculations – as they more openly share their heritage within a country they are now helping to define.

This special is available to watch live during its airdate on the WKAR Livestream.
