In Kansas City, we ate at Lidia Bastianich's restaurant. I've had Lidia's Italy for awhile, though I haven't cooked too much from it. Mostly because we love the Braised Chard and I almost always make that. Chard, boiled til tender. Garlic, chili flakes, tomato paste, fried in olive oil. Beans, tomatoes, heated quickly. Chard tossed and coated. Grilled sausages on the side. Delicious.
