This has become, by far, my favorite show on this channel. The cooking is bright, fresh, simple everyday Italian cooking - by far the best authentic "everyday" Italian cooking show I've seen so far (& that includes Mario B. & Giada). Mario can hem & haw about it, but I tend to believe that more Italians cook at home like David Rocco than they do like Mario - lol! I've copied & saved so many recipes already we'll almost be Italian by the time I've finished trying them all - lol!
In addition, the few non-cooking segments of the show really give you a feel of "every day" Italy. Friendly, & sort of makes you feel you're there (even if you don't speak Italian - lol!). All in all, I really like this show. Since it's most likely a rerun show, I can only hope it didn't have a short season.
