Dream of Italy Season 3: Massimo Bottura and Modena PART 1

Dream of Italy: Episode 304 with Massimo Bottura and Lara Gilmore

When host Kathy McCabe visited with 3-Michelin star Chef Massimo Bottura and his dyanimic wife Lara Gilmore in Modena, a town in the “slow food, fast cars” region of Emilia Romagna,we had such fun we turned into two very special episodes about the chef and his wife and the unique culinary episode they have built in the land of balsamic vinegar and Parmigiano Reggiano. This is part one featuring the world’s best restaurant Osteria Francescana, a ride in Massimo’s Ferrari, making balsamico at Casa Maria Luigia and more.
