A new TV cook makes her debut on Channel 4 next week.
Michela Chiappa is the star of ‘Simply Italian’, a brand new cookery series in homage to Italian pasta dishes, which kicks off at 8.30pm on Monday July 30.
The show will see Michaela, a Welsh-born Italian, take viewers on a crash course in how to make fresh pasta based on recipes handed down through generations of her family, who originate from the Emilia Romagna region of Northern Italy.
Filmed on location in her family home in Merthyr Tydfil, Michaela and her sisters aim to teach viewers that fresh pasta is not something to shy away from, making simple stuffed pasta dishes and homemade traditional sauces.
Starting with pasta recipes that require just a ball of dough and a rolling pin, they will also travel back to their home town of Bardi in Italy to meet experts and learn more about their national dish.
