Bobby Flay and Giada De Laurentiis are made their way of eating through Itlay.
In the new four-episode discovery+ series, Bobby and Giada in Itlay, the chefs, and close friends embark on a one-month trip to Rome and Tuscany while getting inspired by Itlay’s history and local cuisine.
Moreover, in PEOPLE’s exclusive sneak peek of the show, the celebrity cooks are joined by Giada’s mom, the actress Veronica De Laurentiis, for a tasty meal at Armando Al Pantheon in Rome.
Earlier, the trio served up the antipasto dishes: bruschetta, crostini with anchovies, flower and mozzarella cheese, and coratella.
Flat says, ‘The lamb is spicy,’ adding that the ‘zucchini might be my favorite.’
Also, the De Laurentiis ladies were impressed. ‘I like the beans a lot,’ said Giada, while her mother adds, ‘It’s not spicy and heavy. It’s very light.’
Later, they munch on the el primo course, which includes smaller portions of pasta dishes than Americans are used to.
‘Here’s the variation that you find between America and Italy,’ adds an impressed Flay. ‘When they make the pasta, they just gloss the pasta with the sauce. In America, it’s just sitting in way too much sauce.’
Apart from that, according to the source, Flay explained that he came up with the idea for the new show and immediately asked Giada to be apart of it.
He said, ‘we are friends, we both love Italy and we are both on the same network, so it made accurate sense.’
‘So that’s what we did. And I have to say, I think it’s probably the most beautiful things that I have ever shot, for sure.’
Moreover, he adds, he thought we are going to see inherent happiness in both of us just being there. When we go to a place that we really love being, our whole demeanor is different. ‘We were just so much more relaxed and just smiling a lot and just enjoying our surroundings,’ he said.
