Speaking of meals, Lidia Bastianich, chef and host of TV's "Lidia's Italy", has a whole bunch of links on her website about her experiences cooking for the Holy Father during his stay in New York City.
First, the menus for the meals can be found by clicking here.
Next, some of the recipes for these items can be found by clicking here. The rest, according to Lidia, can be found in her cookbooks (which she'll autograph for you if you buy them from her website).
Finally, a media kit put together by Lidia, which includes links to other articles and video footage about the papal meals, can be found by clicking here.
