Next Episode of Extra Virgin is
On Extra Virgin, actress Debi Mazar and her Italian husband, Gabriele Corcos, invite you into their home as they share their tremendous passion for Tuscan food and for each other.
One of Debi's favorite places to go in Florence is the 400-year-old Pharmacy at the Santa Maria Novella. Part museum, part store selling traditional and modern elixirs, oils, soaps and perfumes, Debi has been going here for years. She and Gabriele decide to spend the day showing the girls all of the different ways that the herbs from their land can be used to make fun beauty treatments and delicious food. Debi will give Robert and the girls a "spa day" in their kitchen, then Gabriele will cook a dinner using recipes that highlight the same local Tuscan herbs.
Tuscany is full of wild game; deer, rabbit, pheasant and, of course, boar. The animals have had a major influence on the traditional food of the region and it's a constant topic of conversation. One of Gabriele's friends runs a Tuscan safari -- a trip through the wilderness that gives visitors an up close look at some of that Tuscan wildlife -- so today, he's taking Debi and the girls on safari. Then for dinner, they'll cook some delicious recipes that feature the most celebrated local wild game, the mighty boar.
There is a bocce ball court on Gabriele's property that nonna Lola used to play all the time, but since Gabriele moved to the states the court has fallen apart. Now, he wants to repair it and bring it back to its former glory. When it's ready, he'll get the whole family out there, including nonna Lola, for a big feast and inaugural bocce ball tournament to officially open the court again. Of course, all of the food for the feast will be favorite recipes of nonna Lola. And for an added treat, Gabriele will take the whole family to the medieval town of Colle di Val d'Elsa to learn how to make Lola's favorite cookies, Ricciarelli's, and bring a bunch back for the party.
