In the port city of Livorno, host Pete Evans is joined by two chef-authors with U.S. roots: Bryan Voltaggio, who visits from Maryland, and Pamela Sheldon Johns, who has called Tuscany home for more than 20 years. Seasonal, local, and traditional flavors have inspired this seaside episode of Moveable Feast with Fine Cooking; first, Pete visits Prosciutto di Parma to learn about this geographically protected delicacy. Then he meets up with Bryan and Pamela to tour the city's Venetian-style canals and browse the 19th-century style Mercato Centrale for local produce. From the regional classic cacciucco, a tomato-based seafood stew, to a flavorful bordadito, a polenta and bean crostini, this feast embodies the spirit of Livorno in its unpretentious character and coastal integrity.

Cadenet, France NEW

Travel to the interior of Provence when Moveable Feast with Fine Cooking visits Cadenet, France. Host Pete Evans takes a trip to see how the coveted fleur de sel is harvested from the pink waters of Aigues-Mortes, a region of salt ponds bigger than Paris. Then, Pete meets up with the mother-daughter chef team of Reine and Nadia Sammut to source fresh artichokes from a local field and prepare them at their stellar countryside restaurant. Nadia has made it a point in her family's restaurant to incorporate gluten-free items after she discovered she had celiac disease, and her mother Reine, who has been the owner of the restaurant for decades, melds her classic techniques with allergy-conscious ingredients. French heritage is found in both the setting and the feast: on the menu are artichokes Provencal, gluten-free focaccia, and a luscious lamb stew.
