Lidia talks Breadcrumbs

Lidia is coming to Toronto and Montreal this February and we just completed week 1 of our giveaway frenzy! Congratulations to last weeks winners Rose, Gabriel and Jennie, who each won a signed copy of “Lidia’s Favorite Recipes!”  Also, Lorraine, Miranda, and Valentina who each won a pair of tickets to see Lidia live in Toronto, and Dina and Nancy who each won a pair of  V.I.P. passes to see Lidia tape a live show in Montreal. Winners, please check your email or twitter and send us your mailing address asap to recieve your prizes, but if you missed your chance last week…no worries, we have another week of giveaways for you. If you want to win,  watch this Lidia video tip on seasoning your own breadcrumbs! Trust us, this simple tip will go a very long way in your kitchen!

Ahhh but does this sound familiar? We shared this very similar “Nonna tip” with you just a little while ago! Of course Aurora has ready to use Seasoned Breadcrumbs that are quick and convenient but we also have a very popular unseasoned Gluten Free Breadcrumbs that are extra crunchy and perfect for making your own seasoned breadcrumb mix to make all kinds of recipes.

It’s really amazing how these 4 simple ingredients, when blended together can make exceptional veal or chicken cutlets, fish au gratin, baked asparagus, or red pepper appetizer just to name a few! Add cheese and you’ll be surprised how many more dishes you can make, just take a look here!

Ok, we hope you watched closely because here is how to win! Go to our Facebook tab and enter there to win 1 of 3 pairs of tickets to see Lidia live in Toronto on Feb. 10th at 3pm, or 1 of 2 pairs of V.I.P passes to see a private taping in Montreal on Feb.11th at 8pm.  If you are not on Facebook, no worries,  just leave a comment here answering the following questions: Please specify in your answer your preference (Toronto or Montreal.)

Did you watch the recipideo “Nonna Tips, if so how did you like it?” Out of all of the recipes in the video can you pick a favorite? Have you made any of them or is there anything you make at home that you could share with us? We’d love to hear!

About the Author:

I am a little of a great many things. Every experience and every blessing. And even though the whole may be greater than the sum of it's parts, welcome to this little part of me I call "Ita-liana." Raised in an Italian grocery store/food importing company (which explains why wine and olive oil runs through my veins) this is the part of me that is the very best of my Sicilian and Calabrian roots. Watching my Calabrese mother and grandmother cook for the entire family, with not only expertise and ease, but with an over abundance of love, left it's mark. Travelling back to Italy and learning about family history did the rest, while my Sicilian side kicks in almost intuitively. * © All recipes, photography, illustrations on posts by "ita-liana" and "Recipideo" video content copyright Liana Tumino ©

Yes I watched the Nonna tips and everything looked so good. The artichokes remind me of when my mother made them. The colored peppers looked so good they would make a great antipasto. Our breadcrumbs are really good. I would love to learn more recipes and Lidia’s recipe book would be amazing.
Io sono pronto per mangiare!!!!!

Great video! I love the idea of adding La Bomba to the breadcrumbs, that would be delicious on some baked shrimp. I would love to see Lidia in Toronto (any more signed cookbooks laying around?).

Nonnas tips helped me out in my cooking for my grandkids this past weekend. Very informative. I loved the recipe with the stuffed artichokes they made me feel like I can actually taste it! Toronto Please.
