Don’t miss the delicious. podcast Italian special

The delicious. Podcast for July is an all-Italian special sponsored by Sacla’, the pesto people, to tie in with the July magazine’s celebration of all things Italian, and to pay tribute to a country whose food we all love.

Don’t miss the delicious. podcast Italian special

Listen to the behind-the-scenes stories of some of the greatest Italian ingredients: the cheeses from San Patrignano favoured by superchef Massimo Bottura and Fortnum and Mason’s boss Ewan Ventors, and the lentils loved by Giorgio Locatelli. We think you’ll find stories that will break your heart (find out more here).

As Sacla’ is our very first podcast sponsor, I asked their man, celebrity chef Aldo Zilli, to join me to record the show over lunch at Fumo in St Martin’s Lane.


Meanwhile, food writer Simon Parkes, who has researched everything you could ever wish to know about basil, gave me the lowdown on this king of herbs. Get your first sniff this week, then settle down for a fascinating tour through the history of this plucky little plant next week on delicious. Podcast: Extra Portions.
