The Return of the Artisans looks at how this new generation of craftspeople is training today. We take viewers on an intimate journey to see traditions that have been kept alive for hundreds of years, skills passed down from generations with pride, passion and love—now being passed on to new apprentices.
My journey culminates in a special celebration meal at Ironbound Farm in New Jersey, inspired by the people I met while making The Return of the Artisans. It’s a small token of appreciation for the artisans who so generously opened their lives to me.
Tune in to hear their stories in our film Lidia Celebrates America – The Return of the Artisans. December 20, 2019 at 9pm (check local listings).
