— What is Italian food?
Well it's not deep-pan pizza filled with chicken tikka pieces nor is it lasagne served with coleslaw, as the exuberant Keith Floyd demonstrates in his new seven-part series - or "gastronomic grand tour" as he prefers to call it.
In this first programme,
Liguria and Piedmont, he sets up his famous portable stove in a market square. Using regional produce he cooks red mullet in pesto sauce, then it's on to
Piedmont where he prepares bollito - a gargantuan meat stew - and goes truffle hunting with a local farmer.

A series of portraits of unorthodox scientists.
Linus Pauling. Nobel prize-winning chemist Linus Pauling is an unlikely heretic. Twenty years ago he was hailed as "the father of modern chemistry". His heresy has been to claim that a whole range of diseases, from colds to cancer, can be prevented by taking large amounts of vitamin C. Until a few years ago his crusade was condemned but with mounting evidence about nutrition and disease, some scientists aren't so sure now.
Narrated by Rosemary Hartill. Producer Tony Edwards
Followed by Video Nation Shorts Subtitled
