Everything you need to know about the new CiaoItalia.com

Posted | 0 Comment(s)

We're very pleased to welcome you to the new ciaoitalia.com!

As we approach the show's twenty year anniversary, we felt it was time to give our site a new look and we could not be more pleased with the results.

As the online home for television's longest-running cooking show, this site will provide you with all of the same authenticity and traditional approach to Italian cuisine you get from the show.  Only now you can take Mary Ann in the kitchen with you.

VIDEO RECIPES
One of the things we're most excited about is the addition of video recipes to the site.  Have you ever been in the middle of preparing a recipe when it occurs to you that you're not quite sure what an instruction means, what an ingredient looks like, or what part of the recipe to start with?

Now, on CiaoItalia.com, you can watch Mary Ann prepare the recipe before you even take out a measuring cup.  And the best part is, it doesn't matter whether it's 6:00 pm on a Monday in New York or 10:00 pm on a Saturday in Los Angeles, she's always available online!

We've already put over 200 recipes up on the site and we're adding more every day.  We have hundreds more to add so you'll always find something new.

To get access to all of the video recipes you have to become a Premium Content subscriber.  If you want to check out the video recipe feature before you sign up for a Premium Content membership, take a look at this recipe for Pan Cooked Chicken Breasts.

OUR NEW LOOK
You may have noticed the new look and layout for CiaoItalia.com.

Our intent was to give the site a warmer feel that brought to mind all of the flavors and aromas of a traditional Italian kitchen.

We also moved some things around to make them easier to locate.  We hope the new layout is more intuitive and easier to navigate.

As always, if you have any comments or observations you wish to share, please feel free to e-mail us atinfo@ciaoitalia.com.
