New Jersey native Cara Di Falco is a woman who knows that success is born of passion. In just three short years, she’s made her online series ‘Cara’s Cucina’ YouTube’s first and ONLY Emmy Nominated cooking show!
Di Falco’s distinguished career on TV and radio (at News 12 NJ, Good Day NY on Fox5, and 1010 WINS radio) set the table for her expertly produced and highly entertaining foray into the world of cooking shows, but this Italian American renaissance woman is so much more than just a TV star. She’s also an Integrative Nutrition Health Coach, a professional broadcast journalist, and a tireless ambassador for Italian American cuisine and culture.
Now, this proud “graduate of Nonna’s kitchen” sits in with Rossella and John to share the secrets to her success and to dig deeper into their shared Italian American experience.
As they explore the evolution of Italian American cuisine, they’ll discuss family history, culinary anthropology, and the ups-and-downs of sharing personal recipes with the wider world. They’ll try to understand an “Italian American take on Home Economics”, address the hypersensitive topic of finding a consensus-based meatball recipe, and decide whether or not Chicken Parmigiana truly qualifies as part of the “Mediterranean Diet”.
It’s an episode to inspire the amateur culinarian that rests in the heart of all Italian Americans, and one that’s jam packed with laughs and love “from soup to nuts”.
