Guy and Hunter kicked off their family vacation in Athens, where the father-son duo learned how to eat like Grecians. This week, the two cruise through Italy on their vespas, and learn how to make the essential Italian dessert: gelato.
“Of all the countries to visit, I think Italy is the most important,” Guy says, explaining it’s where his entire family originated.
It’s in Rome where the two Fieris learn how to make fig and banana gelato, which is a chilled Italian delicacy. Gelato is churned at a slower rate and served at a slightly warmer temperature than ice cream, making its texture silkier and smoother.
Guy and Hunter leave the sweets behind and head to Venice via gondola to check out the seafood markets for a big family reunion dinner. Guy decides to make some surf and turf for his cousins, as Hunter meets many of them for the first time.
No trip to Italy is complete without trying branzino, a popular silver-skinned fish sea bass. Guy stuffs his branzino with lemons and veggies, and garnishes with parsley. The Fieri’s Italian feast isn’t complete without plates of spaghetti and clams, a recipe which originates in Naples. Typically in North America, spaghetti is served with red sauce and loads of meatballs on top, but in Italy, the rule is it has to be white.
Take a trip to Italy like Guy and Hunter, and eat like an Italian with this inspired menu.
