From The TV Show: Arrosticini in Abruzzo

In the Abruzzo episode of the second season of Dream of Italy on PBS, Kathy makes a stop in the countryside for a delicious road-side treat.

At the roadside Ristoro Mucciante (Localita Madonnina, Castel del Monte), you can buy arrosticini (lamb skewers) inside and grill them outside with the locals, who frequent this spot for a picnic with a mountain view. A traditional shepherd’s meal, arrosticini are adored by the local people. The family-owned restaurant is run by brothers Rodolofo, Roberto and Gianni, and also sells sausages, beef, cheese, bread and other snacks.
