Celebrity chef Lidia Bastianich will return to San Antonio on May 7 for a luncheon benefiting KLRN.
The meal will be offered by Joseph Buonincontri at his Luce Ristorante e Enoteca, 11255 Huebner Road. He has hosted the PBS culinary star on several visits to the city.
Buonincontri’s menu begins with contemporary deviled eggs and tomato and ricotta crostini, followed by Belgian endive and walnut salad. Wild Alaskan halibut with braised fennel will be served with contorni of sautéed celery, Yukon gold potatoes and grape tomatoes. Fruit-filled fried half-moons will be the dessert.
Bastianich will talk with guests during the lunch and each person will receive an autographed copy of one of her cookbooks.
The meal begins at noon. Tickets are priced at $125 apiece. Call (210) 270-9000 for reservations.
