The Italians love their small Panini, but here in the U.S. those traditional sandwiches took on lives of their own. In this episode, Lidia shows the New Orleans Muffaletta sandwich, the Veal Hamburger Parmiciano from St. Louis and Chicago's Italian Beef Sandwich and takes a little visit to each of these cities to see where they came from.
As the Italian immigrants settled the Northeastern coast of the United States, they did what they knew from their homeland. In many cases, this included fishing for the local catch. In this episode, Lidia makes the Calamari Fra Diavolo over Linguine and she also shows Salt Cod, Potato & String Bean Salad. For dessert, there is nothing like a super simple and totally delicious ZuppaInglese.
