Film star and food lover Silvia Colloca (Van Helsing) first began her blog (Silvia’s Cucina) as a way to share the delicious, Italian recipes that had been passed down through her family for generations. Her blog quickly gained popularity; she soon authored her first cookbook and Made in Italy with Silvia Colloca is the first season of her new television show which superbly combines authentic Italian food with travel through some of the most beautiful regions in Italy.
In Made in Italy Silvia Colloca visits three regions of Italy that are close to her heart – Abruzzo, Le Marche and Molise, to re-discover authentic ‘cucina povera,’ making healthy, heart-warming food accessible to everyone. Every episode sees Silvia meeting locals, cooking in their kitchens and allowing viewers a peek inside the true Italian secret of la dolce vita. Silvia meets chefs and cooks, who share their culinary delights and takes us back to meet her own family to live, breathe and eat the food culture of everyday Italians. With picture postcard backdrops of piazzas, Roman ruins, villages perched on mountains to the ancient traditions of seaside fishermen, Made In Italy With Silvia Colloca is not just a cooking show; it’s a visual feast for any armchair traveller.
Food lover Silvia Colloca is a woman of many passions: professional actress, trained opera singer, blogger and cookbook author. After spending her childhood in the kitchens of her mother and grandmothers in Italy, Silvia absorbed much of their Italian culinary heritage and nurtured her love for Italian cooking.
