IN THE KITCHEN WITH STEFANO FAITAis back for a third season of all-new recipes, guests and fun this fall. Each afternoon, Stefano welcomes viewers and a LIVE studio audience to his big open kitchen to enjoy easy-to-make recipes in a cooking school setting. He prepares two or more delicious dishes in each episode and, along the way, offers answers to common cooking questions, gives loads of ingredient substitutions and teaches simple techniques, inspiring Canadians to get ‘in the kitchen’ and get cooking!
Stefano inspires viewers with his passion for making food from scratch with fresh, simple ingredients. He shares his special rustic recipes inspired by his family’s rich food history and encourages viewers to get ‘in the kitchen’ to enjoy food with friends and family. The TV show showcases Stefano at his best — interacting with audience members and teaching cooking techniques and methods in an informal, cooking-school-like atmosphere.
Stefano credits his mother for teaching him everything he knows about cooking. As a young boy, Stefano would sit on the counter and watch as his Mom, Elena, a well-known food personality in Québec, would prepare traditional Italian family favourites. He is a life-long resident of Montreal’s little Italy, where his family’s renowned kitchenwares store, Quincaillerie Dante, opened in 1956. Dante quickly became an institution, famous for its eclectic mix of cooking tools and hunting supplies. His family also operates the Mezza Luna Cooking School on the same block as the store, where customers learn about food preparation and interact with Stefano, his Mom and other food personalities in an intimate environment.
More than anything, Stefano wants Canadians from coast-to-coast to get IN THE KITCHEN and have some fun!
A busy man, Stefano Faita will be opening an all-new restaurant venture, Impasto, at the end of June 2013. Located in Montreal, at 48 Dante St. in the locale that last housed Trattoria Casa Mia.
In celebration of summer, here are two of his special rustic recipes inspired by his family’s rich food history…
