Celebrity chef Lidia Bastianich travels across the country to share the stories of five Americans who have overcome extraordinary odds. “I want to meet people who have lived through difficult situations. I want to learn about their resilience—where does it come from? And, of course, I do it through food. Food opens all kinds of doors. It connects us all.”

Watch Lidia Celebrates America: Overcoming the Odds, tonight at 8pm on GBH 2.
