The Taste of Fame 2021 kicks off with our Taste of Fame Virtual Culinary Event on Friday, May 21, on Zoom! The Dinner Ticket features a 30-minute cocktail Q&A moderated by Chef Julia Collin Davison from America’s Test Kitchen, where Chef Lidia will create one of her favorite drinks, Fragoncello, and answer questions, a Sunbasket meal kit delivered to your home for four, step-by-step live online cooking lesson with Chef Lidia to create her delicious Springtime Asparagus Risotto (choice of shrimp, chicken, or tofu), two-week access to the recorded lesson, private Zoom rooms to eat with friends in other households, and one-month Digital All Access to America’s Test Kitchen website, bringing America’s Test Kitchen recipes and videos right into your home kitchen.

WCNY is also bringing Lidia to Syracuse on Friday, Oct.15 for its traditional Taste of Fame Culinary Dinner Experience at the Marriott Syracuse Downtown! Enjoy a three-course culinary dinner journey with recipes inspired by Lidia's new cookbook, "Lidia's: A Pot, A Pan, and a Bowl", and stories to accompany each course. The three-course dinner will begin with a Roasted Squash and Carrot Salad, guest entrée choice of: Beer-Braised Beef Shorts Ribs, Chicken Pizzaiola, or Spinach and Ricotta Frittata, and an Apple Cranberry Crumble for dessert. The best in Finger Lakes wine is included. Guests will also enjoy a cocktail hour and silent auction at 6 p.m., with dinner following at 7 p.m.
