IL PISTACCHIO DI BRONTE
Quello di Bronte rappresenta il “Davide” della produzione mondiale, appena l' uno per cento, ma la sua qualità non ha nulla da invidiare ai  “Golia” di Iran, California e Turchia i principali  produttori-esportatori. Domani è la “Giornata mondiale del pistacchio“,  una ricorrenza ideata, manco a dirlo, dagli americani nel ’76 per motivi commerciali, che anno dopo anno si sta diffondendo in tutti i  continenti.

PIADINA IS NOT QUESADILLA
Legendary film director Federico Fellini loved it, and the poet Giovanni Pascoli wrote poems about piadina. The most straightforward combination of 00 wholemeal flour, lard, water, and salt has never tasted so natural and wholesome. Those essential elements continue untouched to this day. The ingredients' simplicity and quality make it a  digestible and practical street food snack, consumed at every hour of the day, in kiosks, beaches, picnics, and while standing on street corners. We can call it Piada, pieda, pida, and pié, depending on the municipalities; still, the rustic flatbread represents the people's frugal meal and is now elevated to stardom here in the US by numerous hand-held food franchises. And so what is Piadina? Let’s figure out how to make it and stuff it. Read the full transcript HERE.  Subscribe to News You can eat 24 Video-Cast on YouTube.

RESTAURANT REBIRTH
Flavors + Knowledge offers some suggestions on the hospitality recovery post-pandemic. It is indeed plausible to hypothesize that, in the post-emergency, a  further limitation will be observed for the sector. Catering and restaurant marketing will need to be healthy, sharp, and specialized much more than pre-pandemic. Our health emergency will be followed by hopefully the last phase, during which it will be a question of balancing the strategic importance of economic activity with the risk of spreading further the infection.

VALENTINE THE SAINT AND THE CHOCOLATE
I don't know why we give out chocolates on Valentine's or the connection between the 14 of February and cocoa beans. At first, I thought that maybe chocolate was discovered on that date and remained embedded in the minds of those in love, but after some research, I realized that the two have nothing in common, but maybe a little history could make it entertaining. Saint Valentine was born around 176 BC,  chosen as archbishop at the age of 26 for the city of Terni in Umbria. He was continuously persecuted by the Roman emperor Aureliano because of his strong faith and disciplined belief and eventually murdered in the year 273. YouThe Saint's remains rest in a silver statue inside his basilica located at the outskirt of the city of Terni. Pn the bottom of  the glass chest, a logo reads: "San Valentino patron of love."  Many legends surround the saga of the Saint. One of them cites a quarrel between two young lovers walking by the Saint's garden. After a moment of pause, he offered a rose to the couple, suggesting them to squeeze the stem and puncture their fingers. At the sight of blood, the Saint smiled and calmly said: "cor Unum"…..united at heart through the blood. The couple eventually came back months later and asked the Saint to marry them, which he did. The date of the matrimony, the 14 of February,  remained forever the celebration of Valentine. Subscribe to News you can eat 24 Video-Cast on YouTube.

EAT LEGUMES THROUGHOUT THE YEAR
In this episode of F + K the chef talks about legumes. The benefits of legumes are well-known because of their fiber content,  which makes them a food capable of increasing the sense of satiety, a  crucial aspect in the weight-loss diet, but also capable of improving  intestinal regularity. And that’s not all. The fibers nourish the intestinal bacteria. Therefore they perform an effective prebiotic  action that protects the intestinal mucosa from many pathologies.

IL MONTASIO FORMAGGIO STORICO FRIULANO
In questo episodio propongo alcune brevi informazioni sul formaggio Montasio. Il Montasio è il prodotto più importante della tradizione casearia del Friuli Venezia Giulia. Similmente all'Asiago Veneto, prende il nome dall'omonimo altopiano che si apre tra le Alpi Giulie, nella zona di Tarvisio. Si ritiene che sia originario del 1200, ad  opera dei monaci dell'abbazia di San Gallo, tutt'ora esistente. La denominazione Montasio appare per la prima volta nel 1775 in un prezziario della città di San Daniele (quella dell'omonimo prosciutto). Il Montasio è uno dei formaggi storici italiani, ha acquisito la certificazione DO nel 1986 e la DOP nel 1996. La zona di produzione del Montasio comprende tutto il Friuli, il Veneto orientale nelle provincie di Belluno e Treviso, e in alcune aree delle provincie di Padova e Venezia. Il disciplinare impone la presenza della scritta Montasio incisa obliquamente sullo scalzo della forma. Grazie per l'ascolto.

COOKING CLASS ON BICERIN FROM THE SAVOY DYNASTY
Bicerin is part of the sweet Savoy tradition. Hot chocolate, coffee, and cold milk cream: three simple ingredients, not mixed but poured in layers in the glass (which only has the name of a  small glass) create a refreshing and not at all cloying drink, an evolution of the eighteenth-century Bavareisa, the breakfast of the Turinese of time, served accompanied by an assortment of bagnà, biscuits, local torcetti, Melia pastries, and ladyfingers. Tradition has it that this delicacy was born in the tiny and homonymous place in Piazza della Consolata, which opened at the end of the eighteenth century as an acquacer, renovated in the nineteenth century, and unchanged since then. The eight marble tables are the same from Cavour's times, Alexandre Dumas's father and Silvio Pellico, and then Puccini and Macario, all, it seems, great coffee-goers.

FEDERAL HILL BREAD MAN
The podcast explores the artisanal trade of a talented bread-man on Federal Hill in Providence's Little Italy. Few foods are as fundamental as bread nor as diverse. Italy boasts  350 types of bread -- no surprise from a country with professional bakers since the second century B.C.E. While some incorporate rarer grains such as maize, barley,  or rye, the overwhelming  majority of Italian loaves of bread derive from semolina or durum wheat. The form the bread takes varies by regional tradition and sometimes even city to city.

HISTORY OF COOKED WINE
Flavors + Knowledge talks about the different cooked wines available in Italy. Particularly widespread in Abruzzo and Marche, you can cook wine from the Montepulciano grapes and Sangiovese and Maceratino. Begin by boiling the must slowly (in the past made in copper pots but currently replaced by stainless steel) for about 10/12 hours. During cooking, stir continuously, thus eliminating the foam produced from time to time.  Once cooked, the liquid - now concentrated - is decanted into oak barrels and left to age for at least five years. Traditionally, prepared in autumn, during harvest season, with very ripe grape rich in sugar content. Often consumed as a sweetener instead of beet sugar, cooked wine offered health benefits against seasonal ailments and a medicinal decoction when mixed with water and honey. Read more.

PRESIDENT BIDEN'S FAVORITE PASTA
This episode shares the recipe for the newly elected President's favorite pasta. Mr. Biden has a passion for Italian food, specifically pasta. He really cannot resist the smell of fresh tomato sauce. He certainly owes the  Italianate to his wife Jill, an Italian American with roots in the province of Messina, Sicily. Jill cooks several foods based on Italian traditions, and President-elect Joe has no other choice but to eat them.  Also, it seems that he enjoys Mozzarella Caprese salad with basil and extra virgin and occasionally splurge on some good-quality brick-oven pizza. In a column published recently, I wrote on Mr. Biden's passion for ice cream. Follow the recipe and cook along with Chef Walter.

MOKA COFFEE IN NAPLES ART AND SCIENCE
This episode of F + K talks about the art and the science of the Moka coffee. Espresso coffee is not only the most consumed drink in Italy. It is an indispensable daily ritual, linked to the culture, traditions, and habits of Italians. This real institution has now become part of the national identity, globally recognized, and appreciated. The Moka machine was invented in Naples and represented the culture and lifestyle of the Neapolitans. But not just for the Partenopei as they are known, Moka moved through the world with the immigrants who reached shores worldwide. There is a shiny Moka Macchinetta in every Neapolitan household. Naples' city carries the torch as the leaders in espresso consumption and bars per square miles in Europe.

Many of these notions come from the Greek or Roman tradition, others come from the East, or simple peasant rites handed down over the years, to which even those who are not superstitious are hardly opposed. As well as the custom of wearing red undergarments on New Year's Eve, to attract luck, in the same way, we can wish the best for the new year on the table, consuming those foods that symbolize a brighter tomorrow. So why not get involved in these customs? One or some of these ingredients will be enough, the one we prefer or that we feel closest to our tastes or traditions. Even if it does not bring immediate fortune, we will have consumed flavorful and tasty food in the company of loved ones. That is itself a milestone.

MY CHRISTMAS IN ABRUZZO FROM AFAR
Buongiorno amici: Growing up in Abruzzo in the late 60s was fun and exciting, surrounded by real friends and a family that provided for us three children the best they could offer. Christmas 2020 will generate a strange sensation for obvious reasons, including the inability to travel back home. Italians identify "home," the birth-place location and after so many years of living here in the States, the holidays make distancing even more challenging to accept. Today I would like to share some of the region's culinary richness and traditions for the Christmas season. Abruzzo is a guardian of ancient villages, fascinating rustic castles, a coastal stretch of sensual beauty, cities of art, boundless natural parks, and uncontaminated mountains. Abruzzo expresses its territorial and naturalistic multiplicity gastronomy that is equally rich and varies. On the occasion of Christmas, the products of the territory arrive on the table of the Abruzzesi, boasting a millenary agro-pastoral culture. The holidays' regional cuisine offers tasty dishes that summarize the hinterland's pastoral traditions and the coastal area's maritime cooking practices, with the guarantee of the genuineness and variety of raw materials, Flavors + Knowledge Podcast is available on 10 mainstream platforms (Host Chef Walter Potenza) Complete show notes available on Substack  Subscribe to News you can eat 24 Video-Cast on YouTube  Support Chef Walters Children's Diabetes Foundation  For recipes, visit the chef blog.  Share CHEF WALTERS NEWS YOU CAN EAT NEWSLETTER Chefwalter.com for all our related businesses Disclaimer: The views and opinions expressed in Flavors and Knowledge are those of the authors and do not necessarily reflect the official policy or position of News you can eat 24.

MIGLIACCIO NAPOLETANO COOKING LESSON
In this episode, F + K Chef Walter explains the recipe for the Migliaccio a classic pastry made during Mardi gras. Migliaccio is a typical Neapolitan dessert popular during Carnevale,  the equivalento to our Mardi Gras. A semolina cake made with ricotta,  eggs, and milk, scented with citrus fruits and vanilla, with a  consistency similar to polenta, creamy and very soft that melts in the mouth similar to a mousse! During the Carnevale season, Italy changes profiles and food preparation, and throughout the nation's cities,  celebrate the arrival of lenten. And along with Chiacchiere,  Sanguinaccio, Graffe, and rice fritters, the Migliaccio proudly adorns the family’s sweets buffet. Ancient origins linked to the  Neapolitan peasant traditions as far back as medieval times. Farmers used "millet," the cereal that influenced the name, Migliaccio. Over  time millet has been replaced with durum wheat semolina. The original recipe also calls for the addition of freshly slaughtered pig’s blood to the mixture, but don’t panic I won’t add it to the recipe, as it would be practically impossible to find that custom in Naples today. The taste of the recent Migliaccio resembles the filling of the famous shell-shaped sfogliatella. The responsible reason why in some areas of  Campania, the sweet Migliaccio is also known as "Sfogliata." Simple and very fast to make, it will take you less than 20 minutes for the semolina cream., and about one hour in totality.

THE PUNGENT DEBATE-GARLIC
F + K Chef Walter talks about the garlic debate prevalent among garlic aficionados. Suggestions on how to use garlic and much more. When I began cooking professionally in the United States, I soon  realized that garlic was used everywhere, from pasta sauces to ice  cream. Growing up in Italy, I did not eat much garlic and still use it  with caution. When I owned my restaurants, I implemented a garlic  sanction on the new hires. When staff learned the proper flavor  extraction and use of the stinking rose, the sanctions disappeared.  Using garlic even among Italians is not sacrilegious, but it does divide  the country. The main reason why Italian chefs don't lean on garlic as a  crutch is because they choose ingredients in season and full of taste. Chefs always seek authentic flavors. Spices and garlic enrich pure flavors but not masquerade the final tasty results.  Sponsored by Chef Walters Cooking School Rhode Island USA, Italy, Dubai, Beijing Subscribe to News you can eat 24 Video-Cast on YouTube  Support Chef Walters Children's Diabetes Foundation  For recipes, visit the chef blog.  Share CHEF WALTERS NEWS YOU CAN EAT NEWSLETTER Chefwalter.com for all our related businesses Note: The views and opinions expressed in Flavors and Knowledge are those of the authors and do not necessarily reflect the official  policy or position of News you can eat 24.

MY TAKE ON BREAD AND DIET
F + K talks about bread and diet and the anomaly of removing the carbs from weight-loss program. Bread is among the most consumed foods in the Western world thanks not only to its goodness but also to its versatility, making it suitable for any meal of the day. Abolishing carbohydrates is a counterproductive strategy when confronted with weight-loss issues. Often the first thing we tend to eliminate from our diet is carbohydrates, mainly bread and pasta. The process may have positive effects in the short term, but abolishing carbs in totality is counterproductive. It may force the body to lose muscle mass to create the sugars it needs. A weight-loss diet without bread and pasta is not guaranteed to be more effective than not having any. Still, it will be challenging to carry on due to too many deprivations while running the risk of causing nutritional imbalances and deficiencies. It is essential to remember that the LARN (Recommended nutrient intake levels) suggests consuming carbohydrates (mainly complex types, such as pasta and bread) equal to 45-60% of the daily calorie intake.

HEALTHY TIPS WHEN ON A TIGHT BUDGET
F + K explores the various options for purchasing food when running a household on a conservative budget. People tend to think that healthier food choices are more expensive and impacting dietary habits. There is no scientific evidence on the  matter. Unhealthy foods can cost more because of food policies implemented, focusing on the production of inexpensive and high-volume commodities. The idea is straightforward: produce as much as possible to save on farming, processing, storage, transportation, and marketing strategies. The more money saved during these steps, the more profit made. If we develop a similar infrastructure for healthy foods,  the availability will increase, and prices would be lower.  The  difference between unhealthy eating and healthy comparables is about $  1.81 more per day, depending on the comparison unit. These numbers apply to 2,000 calories per day for American adults. As you can read, it is not a significant investment in eating better. But Washington DC, in  addition to the cultural heritage, employs groups of people called  "lobbyists." They decide what you and I should eat and the quality of  it. We often boast that we are the greatest nation on earth. Still, I dispute the slogan, because a country cannot assertgeneralgeneraluntil its children are healthy and eat the very best. The USA spends $ 2.88 per child on school meal programs. Sweden  spends 7.66 Euros ($ 10) per child. That should be enough for making us think again and take a stand.

IL COTECHINO, UN SALUME VARIABILE
Sapere I Sapori analizza Il cotechino, un salume tipico della tradizione  Modenese, ma che viene prodotto in ogni parte d'Italia. Il cotechino è  uno di quei prodotti della macellazione del maiale che vengono mangiati  per primi, insieme alla coppa (o torta) di testa e ai ciccioli. Anche per questo il cotechino viene tradizionalmente  consumato a Natale: il maiale si macellava abitualmente in Dicembre, i  cotechini, dunque, erano pronti proprio durante il periodo natalizio. ll  cotechino è un insaccato povero, infatti viene prodotto con le carni  del maiale meno nobili, inadatte a lunghe stagionature e quindi non  utilizzate per produrre salami, prosciutti, salsicce e altri insaccati  più nobili. L'ingrediente principale del cotechino è (o meglio era) la  cotenna, seguita dagli spolpi della testa e del collo, tutte carni  ricche di tessuto connettivo, che richiedono una lunga cottura e che  assumono, una volta cotte, la consistenza gelatinosa tipica del  cotechino. Storicamente il cotechino veniva prodotto dai  "lardaroli e salsicciari" modenesi, che si riunirono in una Corporazione  Autonoma nel 1547. Ma solo nel 1745 si trova la prima  citazione ufficiale del cotechino, quando in un "calmiere" ne viene  indicato il prezzo. La prima ricetta del cotechino compare invece l'anno  successivo. Composizione del cotechino Il cotechino è uno dei salumi più variabili, per quanto riguarda la  scelta degli ingredienti che lo compongono. La ricetta tradizionale  prevede l'utilizzo di cotenna per almeno il 50%, come indicato nel 1841  da Vincenzo Agnoletti, cuoco romano al servizio di Maria Luigia,  granduchessa di Parma, il quale afferma che "[...] l'impasto deve essere  per metà di cotenna e per metà di nervetti e carne magra". Questo impasto viene insaccato nel budello del maiale, messo ad asciugare per qualche giorno (1-2 settimane al  massimo) e poi consumato, previa lunga cottura, necessaria per  gelatinizzare il collagene della cotenna e delle carni ricche di  connettivo che contiene.

10 KITCHEN TIPS # 2
Hey, friends, Flavors + Knowledge continues the effort of sharing kitchen tips for the consumer. Hopefully, they are useful to you.  Salt is not the enemy, and don't be afraid to use it. Salt pulls the flavors out of your dishes—cook with kosher salt and season with sea salt. Create a salt selection in your kitchen; many of them add so much more to cooking based on characteristics and territory origin. Do you have a hard time finding shallots? Replace with a combination of onions and garlic. Use white-skin onions, much softer in taste with less crying time. After handling garlic, rub your fingers on the coffee grind, or lemon peels. Get rid of the sink's odor by adding four tablespoons of baking soda into the drain, let sit (don't run any water) for 15 minutes, and then pour 1/4 to 1/2 cup white vinegar down the drain. MORE.

WHICH OLIVE OIL TO BUY
Hey friends, welcome back to F + K. There are so many olive oil labels in the marketplace, and often the purchase decision can be confusing. Consumers find difficulties between regions and countries. All they want is the right quality  product to consume. We all have heard of Sicilian, Tuscan, Apulian,  and other olive oils connected to various regions and countries but how to buy can be a burden. Today, I'll offer an overview of oil from  Marche, the central-eastern part of Italy, one of the most underrated  EVO, but making waves among chefs and foodies. Marche PGI  (Protected Geographic Indication), extra virgin olive oil is obtained from several olive varietals such as the soft Ascolana, Carboncella,  Coroncina, Mignola, and many others. Marche grows as many as 16  different fruits and at least 85% of the groves. To better understand:  olive oil can be a single cultivar (one varietal in the bottle) or mixed. For the proper production method, the olives must be harvested directly from the tree, either manually or mechanically.  Before milling, the olives must be defoliated and washed with water at ambient temperature.

LA CARABACCIA UNA ZUPPA TOSCANA DI ANTICHE TRADIZIONI
Sapere I Sapori un podcast in lingua Italiana promosso dalla Scuola di Cucina dello Chef Walter Potenza nel Rhode Island USA. Bentornati cari ascoltatori su Sapere I Sapori. In questo episodio parleremo della Carabaccia. La carabaccia è un'antica zuppa di cipolle che si mangia  accompagnata da fette di pane toscano abbrustolito. E' tipica di tutta  la Toscana ma in particolar modo di Firenze. Il nome pare derivare dal termine greco karabos, che vuol dire barca a forma di guscio, forse a ricordare la forma della zuppiera. Nel periodo Rinascimentale viene chiamata col nome carabazada:  all'epoca la ricetta prevedeva, oltre alle cipolle, mandorle pestate,  aceto, un pizzico di zucchero, cannella, e veniva cotta in un tegame di  terracotta al fuoco del camino.

DO I NEED TO EAT AT A RESTAURANT NOW
Hello friends welcome back to F + K. I have owned and operated several restaurants for just about a half-century, providing fine dining and a safe environment for my patrons,  and even when COVID 19 was not around, in the trade we all faced situations related to E-coli, salmonella and various other obstacles  related to food poisoning. This time around however the climate is very  different. As a nation, we don't seem to have a clear message from above  (no, not the LORD), and we are getting mixed signals from everyone surrounding us. It seems like everyone has an opinion on how to wear a  mask, everyone has become a scientist even if most of them failed science and biology 101 in college, and then you have those who believe that this pandemic does not exist. Some states have partially reopened indoor dining as well as offering outdoors. Restaurants are pressured by  the consumer who feels that the prison-like lockdown should be relaxed,  and of course the incumbency of business financial instability. In the midst of all of this most of those who rebuke the idea of  self-protection as a courtesy to others are the same people who have not had family members experience any of the conditions that affect thousands in the land.

ARE YOU FRESH OR FROZEN?
The episode of F + K talks about the values of fresh and frozen fruit and produce. Through my cooking, I realized that the nutritional composition of frozen products is not lower than fresh. Every single product may respond in a different way, connected with whatever cooking process is applied, but the nutrients are still there. In both frozen produce and fruit, there is a loss of vitamins, but fibers do not suffer any changes at all. I think the nutritional level among the two groups is very minor and certainly will not make a negative impact on our health. If we compare some fresh vegetables such as peas, corn, green  bean, spinach with the frozen buddies, the vitamin content may be similar or not variable enough to detect. There is, however, the mindset that frozen is less relevant than fresh, and I cannot argue with that,  but as far as the overall nutritional aspect the difference is truly minor.

CAN YOU LOSE WEIGHT BY SKIPPING MEALS?
Welcome back to F + K. This episode is about losing weight by skipping meals. Sponsored by our agency Mediterranean Diet 21  For a while, I have heard about meal skipping. We seem to trust and try anything to confront weigh-loss, but often the reality proves otherwise. Let’s see If I can explain what happens when we follow this  falsified myth. According to one of the most rooted and shared beliefs in weight loss, skipping meals is a beneficial technique for losing weight because of the common belief that by depriving the body of calories and nutrients, you can reduce fat mass. For breakfast, a coffee and go, a seasoned salad for lunch, eating only for  dinner, etc.: all these behaviors reduce the calories ingested, lose weight, but often it is just water and lean mass, not fat. However, the weight loss does not last long because the metabolism adapts to the caloric constraints implemented and reduces its activity. And even if you only eat 1000 calories a day, you will lose very little fat, and you will be starving. Therefore, the belief that skipping meals is an effective method of weight loss is devoid of scientific foundation.

TIPS ON ORDERING TAKE OUT
Welcome back to F + K. This episode is about take-out suggestions. Take out and food delivery has been our new lifestyle since February  2020, it seems. We don' trust the pandemic and the people who often see this as a hoax. Those are the people who luckily have not lost anyone in their circle, and I am thankful for them. You can still enjoy the comfort of your surrounding with some great takeout from your favorite place. It may not replace the experience of a restaurant, but we have adjusted well. Take-out food preparation has unique challenges such as appearance, taste, and consistency, not to mention the proper packaging, often of low quality. There is nothing more detrimental than a  $ 17 pasta dish in a 57 cents container. So you open your phone,  the menu pos up, and think about what to order. You also would like some healthy options along with taste. You can do a couple of things: menus online may have symbols or designations regarding healthier options, especially fast-food establishments. The list often describes some steps on the methodology,  but not all the ingredients. Ask for help.  Restaurant staff can guide you through the menu navigation, ingredient listing, and preparation methods. They need to make a sale and want to  keep you satisfied, especially if you are a repeat customer.  Ask about the portion size when ordering for dinner time. Good dining habits climb in quantity  during lunch and decrease during the evening for digestive reasons.  Overeating in late hours, it's uncomfortable and raises blood sugar levels, even if you do not have diabetes. Ask for sauce on the side.  Remember that many of those dipping sauces carry many calories because loaded with high fructose and sodium.

10 PASTA MISTAKES
Welcome back, dear friends. Cooking and fixing a dish of pasta is not complicated. We resort to it when uncertain about what to cook or short on time. Pasta is also the pride of Italy and the world. We are famous for being the best at preparing it and knowing its secrets. But do you know that in reality, every day without understanding it, we make many mistakes and what seems to be perfect pasta, often hides many imperfections? Even the simplest of pasta-based recipes, such as the classic pasta with a sauce of garlic, olive oil, and chili, must be carried out skillfully. So I have put together ten of the most common mistakes when preparing pasta.  There are others, but these will do for now. How many of you recognize yourself at least at one point?

SICILIAN FOOD THE GLOBAL DIET
Welcome back friends: Sicilian food is contradictory, just like the Sicilian culture. It is an odd mixture of Italian, Greek, Arab, French, Spanish, and North  African. Its dinner plates are living odes to the number of peoples that have conquered, colonized, settled, ruled, and emigrated here. Every region in Italy has its unique culinary traditions, but to lump Sicilian food under the over-arching category of "Italian food" does a  disservice to this island's culture and proud history. The first recorded example of Sicilian food comes from the 5th century B.C., from a  cook named Mithaecus. His writing on his native land's cuisine was the first documented cookbook in Greece – and the first cookbook in the world in which the author's name was well-known and identified. Sicily  was first inhabited by an "ancient people of Italy," with small groups from Egypt and Spain. However, the island was not put on the map until  the Greeks colonized it. They left behind grand ruins and theaters in places like Siracusa and Taormina, but also – significantly – brought olives and grapes with them, introducing some of the most important crops to the region and to what we know of Sicily and Italy today. The  Greek diet – which today is so affectionately called "the Mediterranean diet" – leans heavily on fresh fish, vegetables, and grains.

HISTORY OF SFOGLIATELLA FROM NAPLES
Hey, friends welcome back to F + K. You cannot visit the city of Naples, an unmissable stop for gastronomy enthusiasts, without tasting a sfogliatella, one of the sweet symbols of the Neapolitan pastry. Loved by both Italians and foreign tourists, this delicious and fragrant pastry, of which the curly and short-crust variants are known, originated 400 years ago and then underwent changes and evolutions. Let's go then to discover its fascinating history, from the conception of the recipe to the present day. According to legend, in 1600 a cloistered nun of the Convent of Santa Rosa in Conca dei Marini (Salerno), on the Amalfi Coast, accidentally invented this iconic sweet from Campania. Some say that a nun from the convent was preparing biancomangiare, a Sicilian sweet made with almonds and milk, but then opted for a creative variant that contained puff pastry and ricotta.

When you set up your workspace area, keep in mind sanitized cutting board and clean tools, bowls, and utensils. And make sure to keep a trashcan within arm’s reach. For safety purposes, never trust anyone in the kitchen but yourself. 2. To make an egg wash, whisk together a  large egg with one tablespoon of water or milk until smooth.

CACIO E PEPE THE SENSATIONAL ROMAN PASTA
This episode is about cacio e pepe, perhaps one of the simplest pasta dishes to make, but technically challenging. We seem to discover new dishes every time someone travels abroad, or a  blogger features a new something on Instagram. It is the case of this  Roman dish, traditional in all senses, symbol of the capital city, and now trendy pasta in most restaurants. It originated among the pastures during the seasonal movement of livestock, a process called  “Transumanza,” meaning the moves from one region to another seeking better and prosperous fields for the animal FEED. During the long migrations of the flock, the shepherds of the Roman countryside brought with them various ingredients, such as guanciale, also known as pork cheeks used to make Amatriciana, and tonnarelli pasta. Tonnarelli pasta looks like spaghetti—long and thicker than angel air, skinnier than linguine—and when I make them with eggs, its strands are chewy and will hold the cooking. These days, many restaurants use spaghetti and deem it authentic, but tonnarelli was the original pasta of choice. Shepherds carried cheese with them, made from sheep’s milk, made during the stops through the journey, and sold to the local markets they visited. The last ingredients they carried was black pepper. There’s a reason they chose these last three ingredients. Black pepper stimulated the heat receptors and helped the shepherds to protect themselves from the cold. Aged pecorino keeps for a long time. And pasta guaranteed the right amount of carbohydrates and calories. This dish, which over the years has spread from the Lazio countryside to the mountains of Abruzzo and Umbria, leaped and transformed itself from a frugal meal to a dish typical of Roman taverns. According to tradition, the tavern-keepers at the time were careful to serve a “dry” cacio e Pepe to stimulate business. The more cacio a pepe they ate, the more wine they drank. And that's a good thing right?

PANE TOSCANO EXPLAINED
News you can eat 24 analyzes salt-free Tuscan bread. There are over 350 bread types in Italy. Many will disappear within a generation to be replaced by products which seem authentic, but will not be made with traditional local ingredients. Some may actually seem to be the real thing, but the give away is the prefix 'Tipo' written on the package, meaning 'like' and is a reference to the shape and preparation. The flavor then is another matter. So which regions in Italy are worth visiting just for their bread? Sardinia and Puglia for sure, Umbria and Lazio a close second, but all the regions have their unique bread heritage. Pane Toscano is another bread of relevance. Many types of bread overlap into neighboring regions and can also be said to be 'native'. Here in the USA we usually purchase the Italian loaf or the Sicilian type, they are both similar in taste and slightly different in size. We also have ciabatta, focaccia, and piadina as popular choices, considered breads but with much-less leaving incorporated in the dough.

SIX HEALTHY FISH TO EAT
Hey, friends welcome back to another informative episode of News you can eat 24. We know to eat fish at least twice a week or more. Lean, healthy  protein and oily-type sources such as tuna, sardines, and salmon provide rich omega-3 fats needed for our diets. It is, however,  challenging for the consumer to decide on which fish to select,  considering the environment, provenience, and overall taste. Seafood  Watch in the Monterey Bay Aquarium in California, together with health  groups and environmental agencies, has compiled a list known as "The Super Green Best of the Best." The guide indicates safety and health for us. To be included in the list, fish must contain low-levels of contaminants, running below 216  parts per billion (ppb), mercury at 11 ppb, from a sustainable fishery.

REDUCE CARB INTAKE
News you can eat 24. Hello friends, a brief nutrition tip from our H & W agency Mediterranean Diet 21 According to statistics, carbs should provide 42-62 of the daily calorie intake for all age groups and gender. If we choose a diet of about  2,000-calories per day, the carb amount should be about 300 grams.  Many people hoping to achieve weight-loss take the number 300 and reduce it to an average between 50 and 150. We have been told by numerous sources that a low carb diet can help to lose weight. One of the simplest methods of reach the goal is to reduce the number of starches that are present in just about everything and substitute with lots of vegetables, healthy fats, and quality proteins, keeping in mind that a  measured red-meat intake is also very beneficial.

IL CULATELLO DI ZIBELLO
Sapere I Sapori un podcast in lingua Italiana promosso dalla Scuola di Cucina dello Chef Walter Potenza nel Rhode Island USA Bentornati cari ascoltatori su Sapere I Sapori. In questo episodio parleremo del Culatello di Zibello. Tra i salumi pregiati, il Culatello di Zibello è sicuramente il Re. E un salume a denominazione di origine protetta, tipico della provincia di Parma. Viene citato esplicitamente per la prima volta in un documento del Comune di Parma del 1735, in cui venivano elencati i prezzi dei prodotti ottenuti dalla lavorazione del maiale.  Già allora fu evidente il prestigio di questo prodotto, il cui prezzo risultava infatti il più elevato dell'elenco. Il salume comparirà poi in numerosi altri atti, come nel “Calmiero della carne porcina salata”, in cui vengono citati i “culatelli investiti”, ovvero insaccati. I letterati del tempo classificarono il Culatello nella famiglia dei Salami per il fatto di non avere cotenna, ma essere insaccati in budelli di origine animale. Una curiosità importante cita che inizialmente questo salume era chiamato “investitura”, dal momento che la parola Culatello era considerata volgare. Solo nel documento del 1735 il termine fu impiegato ufficialmente.  Altre importanti citazioni riguardo il prestigio di questo salume si possono ritrovare nella letteratura dell' 800-'900, sia nelle opere del poeta parmigiano Giuseppe Callegari che nel carteggio nato tra lo scultore Renato Brozzi e il celebre poeta Gabriele D’Annunzio.

THE UNTOLD ON CALAMARI
Suppose you live in Rhode Island or visit the Ocean State. In that case,  you are familiar with Calamari (Italian for squid, or loligo in fishery terms). When I started cooking about five decades ago, cleaning squid was a horrible job (and still is), usually forced upon the kitchen's newest hire. The fish was inexpensive to buy because of the amount of work needed to get it on the plate. Often considered the seafood underdog when compared with scrod, halibut, swordfish, and tuna. Mostly offered as an appetizer, although delicious in many other versions.  Today, Calamari appears in restaurants of any style. In the 70s, the dish never entered the fine dining kitchens, mostly reserved to pizzerie, diners, and some franchises.

MY TAKE ON GROUND BEEF
Welcome back friends: this episode of F + K is about ground beef. American families consume a lot of ground beef in such amounts surpassing the rest of the industrialized nations.  From burgers to tacos to chilis and everything else we think of making,  ground meat is the actor. Technically ground beef is a product with at most 30% fat content from parts of the cow's body. Most of the ground beef available in stores have trimmings, leftover particles from sectioned meat products. When a supermarket pre-cut sirloins, the pieces around become ground. Trimmings have fat, and lots of it. Not all the trimmings are from the same animal, but a blend of the various specimen. Some packages will have ground chuck, ground steaks, rib-eye,  and so on.

If you are French-trained, you’ll know that chefs put a lot of stock in their stocks. In the business of cooking, if you don’t have a grip on making an excellent stock, you won’t further your career. What is broth? Broths are cooking liquid mostly for soups and light sauces. I make broths by simmering meat in water, to extract flavors from the fat of the meat, enhanced by the additions of seasonings.

PUTTANESCA SAUCE EXPLAINED
News you can eat 24 features "Puttanesca". Spaghetti alla puttanesca "or simply" aulive and cchiapparielle  "(olives and capers) is a typical first course of Neapolitan cuisine. The preparation includes a sauce made of tomato, olive oil, garlic, black  Gaeta olives, capers, and oregano. There is also a Roman version of the same dish that provides another fundamental ingredient: anchovies in salt. Another point of discord between the two interpretations is pasta:  spaghetti, vermicelli or linguine in Naples, and penne in Rome (in addition to the classic spaghetti). The first evidence of a pasta seasoned with a sauce very similar to Puttanesca,  dates back to the early nineteenth century, when writer Ippolito Cavalcanti, proposed several popular recipes in Neapolitan cuisine. One  of them was "Vermicelli all' oglio with olives, capers, and anchovies  sauces." The book Theoretical, practical cooking has been one of the essential books documenting ancient Italian cookery. After some sporadic appearances in various Neapolitan cookbooks, the Italian  Guide of Gastronomy published several specialties from the Campania region in 1931. Among the dishes, Macaroni alla marinara, most likely the current puttanesca. READ MORE HERE Sponsored by Chef Walters Cooking School Rhode Island News you can eat 24 on YouTube

SUPPLI THE ROMAN SNACK WONDER
The food-word for today is suppli. Let’s discover this unusual hand-held Roman snack. Supplì is undoubtedly one of the favorite foods of the Romans, and perhaps represents the essence of the Roman more than all other foods. The Roman know how to eat well and precipitously, mostly by hands, especially street food variants. And it is precisely from the streets of Rome that food torture arises. It is a simple and tasty recipe like rice with meat sauce, pecorino cheese,  mozzarella, eggs, and breadcrumbs. The name is Roman, extracted from the French slank dictionary of soldiers stationed in Rome. All of this happened in the early nineteenth century, when a lover of the recipe, called the fried and breaded rice dumpling surprise, referring  to the filling. The Italianization of the French surprise became suppli. Sponsored by Chef Walters Cooking School Video foo-cast News you can eat 24  Subscribe to our newsletter

THE UNTOLD ON BAROLO WINE
Hey, friends, welcome back to Flavors + Knowledge. In this episode, we'll talk about one of the greatest wines produced in Italy. Barolo. Getting to know the regionality of Italian wines is an arduous task. An esoteric wine labeling system applies to Italy, similar to France. Learning the vast legion of grapes makes the task much more daunting. Currently, Italy grows about 350 grape varieties, with many more not prominent grapes, practically unclassified. Italy produces a massive amount of table wine and aperitifs such as Vermouth, sparkling such as Prosecco, cooking wines such as Marsala, and dessert selections. Veneto, Tuscany, and Piedmont are the three major regions that produce high-quality table wines, with others in less production. Enjoy the history and birth of this noble wine.

News you can eat episodes are the shorter versions of our typical podcast and are paired with a Video-Cast on our YouTube Channel. Let's get on with the wine and the calories Usually, a bottle of red wine on average has about 633 calories. The standard bottle size for wines holds 750 milliliters, equivalent to 5 glasses if you pour 5. 2 ounces on each serving. There are, however, differences between wine types, and not all of them stack up the same. Sponsored by Chef Walters Cooking School, Cranston USA

CIBO NELL' ANTICA ROMA IMPERIALE
Bentornati cari ascoltatori su Sapere I Sapori. In questo episodio parleremo della cucina dell antico Impero di Roma. Da premettere che molti dei cibi di cui parleremo difficilmente li troveremo sulle mense attuali, ma ne vale la pena parlarne comunque. Le famiglie patrizie si trattavano invece molto meglio in quanto la loro coena era divisa in tre momenti : la gustatio costituita da antipasti e stuzzichini accompagnati dal mulsum un vino al miele; la primae mensae composta da ben sette portate e la secundae mensae che consisteva in altri stuzzichini però rigorosamente piccanti. Tutti i cibi venivano mangiati con le mani e, per le classi agiate, le carni venivano servite già tagliate dai servi.  Podcast offerto in Italiano dalla Chef Walters Cooking School USA Seguiteci su YouTube

WHAT DO YOU KNOW ABOUT SUGAR
Welcome back friends, this is flavors and knowledge. Within our podcast, we offer a brief segment, almost like BRAINFOOD CAST, little bites of knowledge, and we'll call it NEWS YOU CAN EAT. Today we'll talk about sugar. Sugar is the common name for sucrose, plays a vital role in so many foods and beverages that are part of nutritious, balanced, and not to be forgotten enjoyable diets. In the U.S. comes from sugar beets and sugar cane plants grown on farms—and there’s an important reason why. Many fruits, nuts, and vegetables contain sucrose, with some containing as much as 10% sucrose! However, nothing tops sugar beets and sugar cane which contain about 16 and 14%, respectively, making them the most efficient way for farmers to grow and harvest sucrose. Show notes available HERE.

MODICA'S UNIQUE CHOCOLATE REDISCOVERED
Welcome back friends, I am Chef Walter and this is Flavors and Knowledge. This episode is part of our DISCOVERY SERIES, where we travel to analyze various Italian products, hoping to generate awareness and knowledge among consumers. TODAY we'll focus on a specific Italian Chocolate specifically from the city of Modica in Southeast Sicily. For years, travellers have been drawn to Sicily’s intriguing history, smoking volcanoes and a famed cuisine, but somehow the island’s distinctive chocolate – made in the Unesco World Heritage town of Modica and inspired by the traditions of the ancient Aztecs – has remained one of the world’s best-kept secrets. When the Spanish were ruling Sicily in the 16th Century, conquistadors went to Mexico and brought back cacao and the recipes needed for what the Aztecs called xocoàtl, a paste ground by a smooth round stone called a metate.

THE STRANGE CASE OF FETTUCCINE ALFREDO
Welcome back to Flavors and Knowledge, I am chef Walter. The topic of the day is about the strange case of the Fettuccine Alfredo who represented a real symbol of Italian cuisine for several generations of Americans. Let's look into this. Fettuccine Alfredo is one of the most popular pasta dishes in the United States and has represented for years a real symbol of Italian cuisine for several generations of Americans. Still today the dish can be found in overseas restaurants and on the shelves of supermarkets, as a ready-made sauce in a jar, or Tetra pack, or simply pre-packaged with pre-cooked pasta. Yet the dish is practically unknown in Italy (or at least outside of Rome). Sponsored by Chef Walters Cooking School.

PIAVE IL FORMAGGIO
In questo episodio di Sapere i Sapori Walter Potenza analizza il formaggio Piave. Il Piave è un formaggio di latte vaccino prodotto nella zona alpina bellunese, nella parte settentrionale del Veneto che confina con il Friuli. Il nome del Piave è lo stesso del fiume omonimo che nasce dal monte Peralba, e la sua produzione si estende in tutta la vallata dove scorre il fiume tra Comelico e Belluno. La produzione del Piave ha origine alla fine dell'Ottocento, quando, contemporaneamente al declino della Repubblica di Venezia e alla conseguente crisi economica, la zona rurale della provincia di Belluno si adoperò per trovare una nuova alternativa produttiva iniziando ad investire nell'allevamento di bestiame da latte e nella produzione di formaggi, anche se la prima volta che questo formaggio fu chiamato "Piave" risale a tempi più recenti e precisamente al 1960.

LA FOCACCIA DI RECCO / ITALIANO
Sapere i Sapori presenta la focaccia di Recco della regione Liguria. Nell’antichità, fenici e greci utilizzavano farine di cereali come orzo e segale che mescolate con acqua, venivano cotte sul fuoco. Ciò consentiva la  loro conservazione per lunghi periodi di tempo. La focaccia era  considerata dai Romani un alimento così pregiato da essere offerto agli dei in occasione della loro celebrazioni. Nel Medioevo,  veniva consumata anche durante i matrimoni e addirittura in occasione  dei funerali fino a quando il vescovo di Genova, allora Matteo Gambaro,  finì col proibire la sua consumazione in Chiesa durante le funzioni. Tuttavia nel Rinascimento, la focaccia continuò ad essere consumata durante i banchetti di nozze.
