Tiramisu 2018 AFTD Food For Thought Campaign #endFTD

Ok, who doesn’t like tiramisu? The first time I learned of this was from Marcella Hazan.

In honor of this year’s AFTD Food For Thought campaign, I will be posting some of Lydia’s favorite recipes. She liked cooking, watching Anthony Bourdain, the Cooking Channel, the Food Network, Gourmet Magazine, Saveur, Martha Stewart and many, many more. I have her cookbook collection at my house, plus there is a stash of hers at our parents’ house, too.
