Lidia Bastianich is a chef, restaurateur, cookbook author, host of a cooking show on PBS and a children's book author.

Her most recent book, "Lidia's Egg-citing Farm Adventure," teaches kids about the chicken and the egg, the way the animals should be treated, how the life cycle works and recipes for egg and chicken-centered dishes.

Bastianich said her grandchildren often asked about her childhood in northern Italy. She explained that recounting those memories helped inspire her book.
