Stanley Tucci: Searching for Italy "Piedmont" 9 October 2022: Series 2 Episode 2 on BBC Two 11

Stanley Tucci visits the region that made the dream of a unified Italy a reality. Piedmont boasts a refined French heritage and peasant traditions from the Middle Ages. Once the engine room of Italian industrialisation, Piedmont is now spearheading a slow food revolution. Between reimagined risotto and the elusive white truffle, Stanley uncovers a region with an illustrious past but with its sights firmly set on the future.

This willingness to learn from regional differences whilst venerating the ingredients and the traditions of the past is the spirit that brought Italy together. Without Piedmont, Tucci isn’t sure he’d be searching for Italy at all.
