Acclaimed chef & restaurateur Margarita Forés takes viewers on a trip to remember and an Italian food escapade as she journeys around Bel Paese (the beautiful country) in new food and travel show, “My Italy with Margarita,” on Metro Channel.

Feast your eyes as the highly renowned chef, who was knighted as an ambassador of Italian cuisine, goes down memory lane and finds comfort in reminiscing her culinary journey in Italy while basking in the memories engraved in the places she visited.

Join Margarita as she travels to Sicily for the first time and meets with cousins Alberto Tasca d’Almerita and Fabrizia Tasca Lanza from one of the region’s leading wine producers Tasca Wines, and goes to the well-known Anna Tasca Lanza Cooking School. Discover the vibrant mix of cultures and cuisines at the outdoor markets of Sicily’s capital, Palermo City.

Meanwhile, relive the past with the chef extraordinaire as she returns to Ischia where she learned how to make pizza many years back from master pizzaiolo Gaetano Fazio. The learnings never stop too as she signs up in a pizza boot camp with one of Naples’ most revered pizzaiolo, Enzo Coccia of La Notizia, and takes a course on the fine art of making and drinking coffee at Caffe Gambrinus.

After exploring Italian cuisine, embark on an excursion guaranteed to raise your desire to experience the enchanting culture of Italy as Margarita tries out what could be described as the most remarkable of cave hotels, Sextantio La Grotte Della Civita in Matera. She also revels in admiration at the famed trulli or cone shaped houses at the Apulian city of Alberobello—the remaining of which have been converted to restaurants and shops.

Finally, accompany Margarita in her homecoming to Rome, as she relishes in her childhood favorites like Roscioli at Campo de Fiore and spends time with the first Michelin starred female chef in Rome, Cristina Bowerman.

Go around and engage in the celebrated elements of Italian culture in “My Italy with Margarita” premiering this Monday (October 7), 8 pm on Metro Channel, the home of chic living from the country’s authority in style, Metro.
