Silvia Colloca travels to Macerata in Le Marche, where she receives lesson in an Italian peasant tradition – vincisgrassi (or lasagne, Marche-style). Heading south to Castelbottaccio in Molise, Silvia and her mother embark on a quest to find a long-lost recipe for sponge cake peaches (pesche di Castelbottaccio). Next up is a nostalgic trip to Abruzzo, a land Silvia holds close to her heart, where she reminisces on cherished childhood memories and visits one of her dearest childhood friends. Together, they create a spring classic - lamb chops with asparagus. Then heading home to Torricella Silvia puts her bread baking skills to the test and whips up a party favourite - bread pockets with cheese and stewed capsicum.
