Those who watch Lidia Bastianich

From Lidia Bastianich......"My dear mother, Erminia, affectionately known as “Grandma” passed away quietly at home with me and the immediate family several days ago. Our team will be dedicating many of my future posts to her as we get through this difficult time"

Jasdip, my heartfelt sympathy to you and your family. I know what it's like to lose your mom. That's a lovely photo of her.

CHLOE, that's not me..........it's Lidia Bastianich's mom! She was a pretty regular member of her tv show.

Jasdip, I just saw this on another cooking forum and figured it out. Sorry for my confusion! Also sorry for Lidia whom I've always thought is a good culinary teacher.

I always enjoy the feeling of family Lidia's mother gave the show. I thought a recent program she seemed more fragile. I will miss seeing her.

I was always impressed with her mom's wit and memory of her youth and growing up overseas. Her mom added additional depth to Lidia's show. Condolences to the whole family.

A very charming and respectful exchange they had.

Martha had a similar relationship with her mother. She had a 'mom and computers' segment often. Teaching frustrations. Her mother was typing her family, friends, specifically grandchildren's e-mail addresses each time in full. Taught her about the address book....one click.

Oh, that is too bad. I didn't watch Lidia very much, but I enjoyed her Mom more than Lidia herself. She certainly had a long life, though.

I follow Lydia on FB so saw this. I have always enjoyed Lydia's show and recipes. She's done some great stuff during the lockdown. I will really miss her mother, one of those "Greatest Generation" people who are leaving us with some big holes to fill. I'm starting to feel increasingly puny . . . but anyway, this is about Erminia and her inspiration. At least she got to know she was an inspiration to many and had a good run with her family. May her memory be for a continued blessing.

I also liked Lydia's mother better than I did Lidia. I would always change channels as soon as Lydia started tasting her own food at the end of making it. I did like Lidia's food and recipes - I just never wanted to watch her sample her food.

I will miss her mother, but at least she lived a long life.
