Lidia Bastianich will hold a book signing on Sunday, Oct. 21 from noon to 2pm at Whole Foods Market in Middletown. The best-selling cookbook author, restaurateur and chef who is perhaps best known for her role as host of the Emmy-nominated PBS show "Lidia's Italy," will be celebrating the launch of her latest book "Lidia's Favorite Recipes: 100 Foolproof Italian Dishes, From Basic Sauce to Irresistible Entrees." The book, released earlier this week, will be available for purchase at the store. Whole Foods Market will offer samples of Bastianich's wine, pastas and sauces—all of which can be found regularly at the store. Those who wish to avoid queuing up can get to the story early to receive a number to have books signed. The store will begin calling numbers at 11:45 a.m. Whole Foods Market Middletown is located at 471 Route 35 North. For more information, call (732) 758-1688.
