Know someone who's a huge fan of cooking shows? Love to cook, especially Italian food? Here's a local gift idea for you.

Lidia Bastianich, host of Lidia's Kitchen on PBS and owner of the popular NY restaurant Eataly among others, will be at Fairway Market in Stamford this Saturday from 1 to 3 pm signing her new book, "Lidia's Commonsense Italian Cooking." She'll have a bunch of her pastas and sauces there to sample too.  Fairway Market is at 699 Canal Street in Stamford.
