I LOVE Masterchef in Italy

11 Jul

I LOVE cooking shows and Masterchef and My Kitchen Rules are always religiously watched.

Masterchef in Italy is just AMAZING. Being Italian, a food lover and a lover of reality cooking shows I am in absolute heaven. I’m loving all the pizza and pasta they are cooking. As an Italian mama I pride myself on my pizza and pasta and I think I make it better than anyone. But I’m not an adventurous cook. We eat pizza and pasta most weeks but with the same sauce and toppings. When it comes to kids, you make what they like and what you know they’ll eat.

I will give the offal and anything with squid ink a miss. When I was little my mum did fry up chicken offal with onions and olive oil. I liked it then but I can’t imagine eating it now that i know what it is.

Italians love food. And everyone loves Italian food. It’s hearty, filling and comforting. It’s easy to cook and easy to share. It tastes better the next day. It rocks.

We’re mid-way through Italy week and I am HANGING for them to start cooking some Italian desserts. Tiramisu, biscotti, custard, cannoli…I would love to see them attempt sfogliatelli but I’m not cruel enough to wish this on them. It takes years to perfect. I’ve never attempted them myself but I know where to buy the best.

There aren’t enough hours in the day or days in the week to eat all the food I want.

Low carb diets have never worked for me. But give me a slice of pizza with fresh salad on the side or a scoop of pasta and I’m in heaven.

    Hi! Italy isn’t just pizza and pasta. That’s a very common stereotype (it reminds me to false myths such as “spaghetti alla bolognese” or “fettuccine alfredo” or pasta with meat balls… we don’t even know what this stuff is). If you wanna know more about the variety of italian food let me suggest you classic books as the Artusi’s guide, or Youtube channels as Giallozafferano… (And avoid Buddy Valastro of course! šŸ˜‰ )
