Review

Chefs Antonio Carluccio and Gennaro Contaldo are supposed to be fending for themselves as they journey around Italy in a campervan. That doesn’t mean they’re going to starve. In this first episode they’re in Calabria in the south, recalling the childhood treats that definitely didn’t include fizzy drinks and an overload of e-numbers.

The pair maintain a gutsy, sensual enthusiasm for all food – they’re always taking deep sniffs of it or sneaking little tastes of it or even fondling it. And all the while they keep up a steady drizzle of bickering.

Summary

Antonio Carluccio and Gennaro Contaldo return to Italy, where they continue their culinary journey. They begin in the southern region of Calabria, where they reminisce about their favourite childhood meals. Antonio reveals the secret of his hot packed-lunches while Gennaro shares his memories of the ritual pig kill. Featuring recipes for orzotto - a pork and pearl barley risotto - fish stew, and rice cake flavoured with orange.
