Brian Boitano's Italian Adventure

By: Cooking Channel

World Figure Skating Hall of Famer Brian Boitano has medals for reaching new heights (Google clips of his signature jump, the Tano Triple). In that spirit, he's vaulting up to the beautiful hilly town of of Favale di Malvaro, Italy -- where his family originated -- to search for his culinary roots. His plan is to learn the secrets of what makes northern Italian cuisine so amazing and use them, along with local ingredients, to put his spin on some simple Italian recipes like Bruschetta, Testaroli with Basil Pesto, Gnocchi with Roasted Tomato Sauce, Grilled Steak with Porcini Mushroom Sauce, Peach Tiramisu, Sauteed Swiss Chard with Pine Nuts and Pancetta, Shrimp Scampi with Chickpea Mash and Trofie with Basil Cream Sauce.  Then he'll show you how to bring it all home on his new special Brian Boitano's Italian Adventure premiering tonight at 8pm ET. This info will be far more serviceable then knowing who won Best Song Written for Visual Media.

Watch Brian Boitano's Italian Adventure Sunday, January 26, at 8pm ET.
