This week, we’re revisiting a favorite from the archive. Italian importer Rolando Beramendi shares recipes from his cookbook, Autentico, for a simple fennel salad, Extra-Virgin Olive Oil Cake and a luscious deconstructed pizza, minus the crust. You’ll want to dig in! Connecticut lawyer Carlo Forzani tells us about his dream to start a vineyard on his family property in Piemonte, Italy, and Alex Province brings us the flavors of the southwest. It’s a fun-packed hour for food lovers.
