Dumplings to Die for / Gnocchi (#2705H) Duration: 29:00 STEREO TVG

Mary Ann features Canederli with Speck, a fantastic dumpling-like recipe from the little-known Italian region of Trentino Aldo Adige. Filled with diced speck, this unique meat product adds an unmistakeable, smoke-like flavor to the tender canederli, bobbing in broth. Perfect for a cold winter's night.

Giulia Mountain Food / Cibo Di Montagna (#2706H) Duration: 29:00 STEREO TVG

The higher you climb the hungrier you get. The mountains of Friuli Venezia Giulia region make you hungry for a plateful of deep-fried Cheese Fritters filled with crisp prosciutto di Parma and Montasio cheese. That's for starters, then a piping hot bowl of Yota. Not named after the tiny Star Wars hero, but the name of a hearty bean soup from Trieste with the tart and terrific addition of sauerkraut.

Art of the Artichoke / L'arte Del Carciofo (#2707H) Duration: 29:00 STEREO TVG

Mary Ann sends artichokes to new heights by stuffing them with farro, chopped parsley, mint, and lots of pecorino Romano cheese. A good long bake in the oven and these tender treats are ready for the table. What could go with it? Easy answer: using freshly chopped mint and more pecorino cheese, Mary Ann whips up a Frittata with Mint in about the time it takes to read this sentence!

Handmade Cheese! / Formaggio Fatto A Mano (#2708H) Duration: 29:00 STEREO TVG

The only thing more beautiful than a Jersey cow is the milk she gives to make fresh Mozzarella and buttery, curd-filled Burrata cheese. Master cheesemaker Luca Mignone invites Mary Ann to his caseificio, Wolf Meadow Farm, to show her how to make the cheeses, then his partner Christina Barbieri helps Mary Ann make a Burrata Salad, Grilled Scamorza, and a Tomato Caprese Salad.

Light Up Your Taste Buds (#2709H) Duration: 29:00 STEREO TVG

Mary Ann tracks down the tallest pasta you've ever seen to prepare an authentic recipe from the region of Basilicata; Eggplant with Candle Pasta. An aromatic combination of garlic, onion: anchovies accents the sauteed eggplant that when combined with the Candele pasta is a triumph. What's a great "second act?" How about Peppers and Potatoes, made with spicy, dried Senise peppers.

Legumes for Health / Legumio Per La Salute (#2710H) Duration: 29:00 STEREO TVG

Often lost in the shadow of Tuscany, much is hidden in Umbria, the "Green Jewel" of Italy, especially this region's wonderful recipes. Mary Ann changes all that when she prepares Lentils and Leeks with Sausage, a meal in a pot and one to remember. And if you possibly have room for more, she shows you how simple it is to prepare Roasted Chickpeas.
