Our Brand New Season!

March 31, 2011

Ciao, amici, it’s time to say hello to spring, and with it, the 21st season of Ciao Italia, coming your way on your local PBS station starting in May.
 
This year the Ciao Italia film crew travels to the beautiful, rolling hills of Tuscany, where we explore the unforgettable food and wines of one of Italy’s most famous regions, plus its many famous landmarks, like the Duomo in Florence and the “wine city” of Montalcino.
 
Back home in the United States, we keep the celebration going by attending a glorious Italian street festival in Boston, raise and harvest a bumper crop of veggies in Guy’s Garden, cook with a great group of culinary students at Johnson and Wales University, and have some fantastic guest chefs in my television kitchen, making everything from tuna to lasagna, pizza to frittatas, and everything in between, including soups, stews, pasta, salads and unforgettable desserts.
 
To give you a taste of what’s coming your way this season, here’s a video sneak preview.

Here’s to spring and here’s to Ciao Italia.
