Photo Coverage: Chef Lidia Bastianich Cooks with BRIDGES OF MADISON COUNTY's Kelli O'Hara at Eataly

Eataly just hosted a special event between The Bridges of Madison County's Kelli O'Hara who plays Italian- born Francesca Johnson in the show, and world famous chef Lidia Bastianich, who is also a part-owner of Eataly. Eataly is the largest Italian marketplace in the world, committed to promoting high-quality, gourmet yet affordable "regional Italian food with a local twist," and is home to its cooking school, La Scuola di Eataly New York (200 5th Avenue). Lidia welcomed Kelli to La Scuola yesterday to help recreate Lidia's favorite dishes inspired from Broadway's The Bridges of Madison County. BroadwayWorld brings you photos form the special event below!

In The Bridges of Madison County, Kelli's character, Francesca Johnson has moved from Italy to a country farm in Iowa. Although she is no longer in Italy, one thing she holds on to is her love for her Italian heritage and the gorgeous foods that come from there. There are many moments where she is cooking or eating on stage with Robert Kincaid (played by Steven Pasquale).

La Scuola di Eataly offers food lovers and home chefs the opportunity to improve their culinary skills by participating in demo-style classes that will focus on making risotto, fresh pasta, "Meatless Mondays," and the regional cuisine of Italy, wine tastings, interactive "Chef's Table" dinners prepared in the open kitchen, "Food & Language" cultural classes taught by native Italian instructors and much more!
