Join beloved chef and cookbook author Lidia Bastianich on a deeply personal culinary journey to four celebrations of independence, to share in the wonderful diversity of American culture and food. Fourth of July: At Monticello, the Virginia home of Thomas Jefferson, Lidia meets a number of new citizens as they are sworn in—including a young Middle Eastern woman who has eagerly embraced her adopted homeland. Juneteenth: Together with Anna Deavere Smith, Lidia travels to Galveston, Texas, to explore the deeply moving and meaningful historical events surrounding the celebration of the freedom from slavery in the US. Bastille Day: Lidia spends the day with celebrity chef Jacques Pepin hosting a celebration of French Independence, playing the traditional game of petanque and singing French melodies with Martha Wainwright. Philippines Independence Day: Comedian Alec Mapa joins Lidia to help her discover the unique background and varied traditions of this nation which experienced multiple cultural influences throughout its history. Finally, famed opera singer Renée Fleming joins Lidia to celebrate independence by singing America the Beautiful.
