I recently appeared on Alex Polizzi‘s “Secret Italy” (1st episode) together with Ada Catto, the lady I am co-writing a book with about Cicchetti (Venice version of tapas): in the episode we talked about Frittelle, Venetian Carnival cakes. 

I had also the pleasure of having as a guest, during one of my food tours, the famous Hollywood film actor Jonathan Tucker.
