Nick Stellino: Storyteller in the Kitchen

For the first time, chef Nick Stellino invites viewers into his home to experience the recipes nearest to his heart in the 13-part series NICK STELLINO: STORYTELLER IN THE KITCHEN. Throughout the program, Nick travels down memory lane to revisit dishes inspired by his childhood and family in Sicily. He demonstrates step-by-step instructions and easy-to-follow techniques, bringing Italian classics to life in a way that allows viewers to prepare new chapters in their own culinary experience. Each half-hour episode revolves around a theme, which is explored through candid moments, personal anecdotes, and lively preparations captured in his Los Angeles home. As a seasoned chef with a passion for food, Nick highlights an ingredient and sometimes a cooking utensil, and then expertly describes how each connects to his Sicilian culture and to Italian cuisine in the preparation of each unique meal. Featured dishes are steeped in Mediterranean tradition - salsiccia al sugo (sausages braised in tomato sauce over mashed potatoes), pasta alla norma (pasta with fried eggplant), and pasta alle vongole all'essenziale (clams and spaghetti) - and are reduced to their essence and explained and demonstrated in a manner that the home cook can easily manage and replicate. NICK STELLINO: STORYTELLER IN THE KITCHEN highlights Nick's love of food, humor and passion for all things Italian.
