Two Greedy Italians

FOOD TELEVISION – Mondays from 10 December, 1.30pm, 5.30pm, 9.30pm

In this beautifully filmed food documentary series, the kings of Italian cuisine Antonio Carluccio and Gennaro Contaldo return to Italy together to remember their own pasts and discover how the culinary capital of the world is changing the way it cooks and eats. Focusing on different Italian regions in each episode, they uncover a changed Italy in some areas and a fiercely traditional, mostly untouched world in others. In each episode, Carluccio and Contaldo will create dishes using recipes, ingredients and influences they discover along their gastronomic journey as well as some of their own favourite traditional meals. The series is distinctly personal, drawing upon Antonio and Gennaro’s upbringing in Italy through their memories and anecdotes whilst reflecting their sometimes fractious, often hilarious relationship.
