It is said that most people eat to live, while in Italy people live to eat. In this course, Hot Docs favourite Dr. Franco Gallippi returns to explore the history and cultural significance of some of the most famous dishes from his native land.
From a simple plate of “pasta e ceci” (pasta with chickpeas) to an elaborate “timballo di maccheroni” (Macaroni Timbale), Franco will use famous scenes in Italian cinema and literature to examine the ingredients and regional differences that have shaped these mouthwatering delicacies, and the identity and history of a people that never stops talking about food.
