Vic explores local history at the Librandi Winery and museum and gets hands on experience at the Fattoria della Piana, milking a cow at the cooperative cheese factory that also produces energy. Recipes include bistecca tagliata and a delicious pulpo salad made with octopus caught just a few miles from the kitchen.
ON THE ROAD WITH VIC RALLO: ITALY! is a new series that celebrates Italy's authentic food, people, history, wine and culture — from the Alps to the southern shores of Sicily. Host Vic Rallo — a New Jersey restaurateur, Italian wine expert and raconteur — explores everything that makes Italy extraordinary.
