Hang out with Lidia and Gretchen

Our own Gretchen McKay is going to be part of a Google Hangout on Air with Lidia Bastianich, and you can, too.

Ms. Bastianich and Parade food editor Sarah DiGregorio will be at the Google offices in New York City in front of a laptop and webcam, and they'll answer your questions as you participate, too -- even voting on which questions you'd like to have answered.

This one is at 3 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 18 (bookmark the event page!). Also joining the fun will be Ms. Bastianich's daughter, Tanya Bastianich-Manuali, as well as Kansas City Star food editor Jill Silva. We'll be talking about the Bastianiches' new book, "Lidia's Commonsense Italian Cookbook," cooking tips, holiday traditions and more.
