Italian chef Lidia Bastianich is one of the rare food celebrities who has a restaurant close enough for Wichitans to visit regularly. Her Lidia's Kansas City at 101 W. 22nd St. in Kansas City, Mo., serves homey Italian dishes in an upscale setting.

Bastianich, 68, is also a television star and cookbook author, and she's making a visit to Wichita. She'll appear at Abode Venue at 1330 E. Douglas on Tuesday, where she'll sign copies of her new cookbook, "Lidia's Mastering the Art of Italian Cuisine: Everything You Need to Know to Be a Great Italian Cook," and speak at an event moderated by Wichita's Scott Redler, co-owner of Freddy's Frozen Custard.
