Season Premiere - November 7th | “Jetlaggin’ In Italy”
Debi, Gabriele and their daughters have just arrived at their home in Italy. Everyone is exhausted from jetlag and the stress of travel and all Debi and the girls want is to relax, but Gabriele has something else in mind, as he invited friends and family over for dinner. Instead they pick apricots off their own trees, which they will grill for an appetizer, and then head to a local goat farm to buy two delicious cheeses. They then make homemade ice cream for dessert and harvest cherries for a compote to ladle over the sweet treat. And to top it all off, Gabriele builds a fire in the heat of the day to make Pasta alla Norma with grilled eggplant as Debi makes a salad with green radicchio and a lemon and olive oil dressing.
Episodes air Wednesdays at 9:30PM ET | 6:30PM PT
