Stanley Tucci "Searching for Italy"

#1 Post by F.Daner »

Surprised I haven't seen a post on this. Whose looking forward to this ? We sure are. For one reason he's a tremendous talent and have high hopes for the quality of the show. He'll be visiting 20 regions of Italy with a focus on highlighting the regional cuisine.

Italy is first up for us when we can travel so we're really looking forward to some fun trip planning and cooking while we wait. First show is Sunday at 9pm on CNN

I caught the first episode a few days ago - it's available on CNN's on-demand service. It was mostly based in Florence and was something of a scene-setter, establishing his father's working in Italy when Tucci was a child as the inspiration for his return. It was a little glossy at times but with some entertaining vignettes. I think the show will be fun as he moves on to some of the less celebrated regions. It's been ten years since I've been able to travel to Italy and I miss it more with each passing year.

My wife and I are also looking forward to watching this. Especially Sicily, which is where my mom's family emigrated from.

I have my DVR set to record the series. I haven't gotten to the first episode quite yet. Been busy with no power and water.

I’ve missed #1.
We rarely watch broadcast TV now, other than the news (CBC, on PVR), so I missed it.

I think he did a good job with Naples, which tends to fall into caricature on food shows.

Ignited a desire to head back to Campania. I suspect each episode with do this. It’s been too long

It’s also being shown just before the 2nd episode Sunday evening. I liked it a lot.

Yes, Rick. The schedule appears to have changed. Even on Saturday, the Ep1 repeat was moved to 10pm EST from the original 11pm EST, and now there's also another Ep1 repeat before Ep2 on Sunday, as you stated.

Fun with television programming and PVRs.

Now that a recommendation. Well watch Napoli tomorrow, an interesting trip for sure. I’d go back but my wife was way too freaked out.

We enjoyed it as well, though it bugged me that with everything on Campanian tomatoes, mozzarella, and lemons, there was no mention of Campanian wines. If no time for a filmed visit over the hills to Taurasi, how about at least popping a bottle with your pizza and giving it a brief mention?

Looking forward to Episode 2.

This is my main criticism as well, and not surprisingly from a WineBerserker, the limited attention to the wines of the region.

Crime is a concern. At the hotel the front desk told my wife to remove all her jewelry before walking into the city center. Probably overly cautious, but it’s not London, Paris, NYC. Also a lot of panhandling including kids running under tables at a waterfront restaurant. That didn’t phase any of the Napoli residents. Naples is probably the most operatic of cities.
Lots of history and a short drive to Pompeii, Positano, Amalfi, or Ravello for overnight stays. Not that you want to drive it yourself in peak summer. We went the end of September to Positano, Capri and Naples. Beach season was over along with most crowds, except Capri with lots of day trippers. Nice to stay on Capri after the crowds thinned out.
Note we wanted to go there for our honeymoon in late March but the weather isn’t very good. I think the best time to visit is summer but August is probably crazy packed.

Today's offering of miscellaneous food items from Garagiste included Campanian lemon powder. Coincidence?

Napoli is safer than NYC. More pickpockets but much less violent crime I believe.

We spent a couple of weeks there during June in a rented villa. Before the European vacationer rush. Terrific time. If you can’t go to Capri in the off-season, go after 4 in the afternoon (works in most heavily tourist places in Europe). The day trippers are back in their buses or boats

The HBO miniseries "My Brilliant Friend" was based in Naples and included several episodes with Ischia (no talk of Coniglio) which added a colorful dimension combined with Tucci's show and perspectives. A little bit of Italian is a big help when you stray off the beaten track.

Agreed. My wife and I walked all over Naples including back alleys and we never had an issue. Just be aware.

Watching episode one now. I think it’s pretty meh. He touched a few fine points of Naples/Campania but it’s much more exciting to me than he’s making it out to be.

This recipe is close but clearly not exact. Simple doesn't mean easy! The little tricks (not to mention fresh, unusually tasty and properly ripe/sized zucchinis) undoubtedly make or break the dish.

Thanks for that recipe. Obvious points of divergence from the episode are that they fried the zucchini in sunflower oil and cooked it the day ahead. They also added some butter. I’ll play around with it as soon as I can get local zucchini.

The episode from Rome has some lovely dishes particularly the spaghetti dish with the fresh precorino/parmesan reggiano sauce.

Loved both episodes and like so many others has me yearning to return to Italy. COVID cancelled last years family trip to Umbria 🙁 so I am more than ready to go back. We love Naples and have visited several times. The further south you go, the better it gets. But having some Italian helps a lot.
