Now, This Is Italian!: Industry Night, March 23, 2023


Amy Riolo! The award-winning, best-selling author of 13 books, a chef, a television personality, an educator, AND Amy is one of the world’s foremost authorities on the culinary culture of Italy. I can’t even remember when we met, but what I do remember was being fascinated by her story and her incredible wealth of knowledge. Amy has joined David and me on Foodie & The Beast too many times to count, and in January we had her on to talk about her new line of regional Italian products - which were delicious! I just needed more time with Amy than the 10-minute segment that Foodie And The Beast allows. Amy and I talk about her exploration of her Italian roots, her love of her culture, and how she generously shares it with all of us.

"When I indulge in the flavors of other regions, it's not just about satisfying my hunger, it's a way of paying homage to the culture and history that make these foods so special." - Amy
