Alessandro's Italian Food Challenge

Anyone else watch Alessandro's Italian Food Challenge? Big city chef Alessandro Borghese goes to various regional areas to learn how to make local specialities. He shows up in town and finds a housewife to stay with for a few days (and flirt with) as she teaches him how to make a particular dish. He makes a modernised version and they invite a small group for dinner.

It's rather contrived, but good fun and has given me a few ideas. Today they were making stuffed eggplant. Coated them in egg white before cooking - to, which supposedly keeps them from splitting.

It's almost never bad to feed someone.

If we're thinking of the same thing, it's called "L'ost" in Italy. I've watched it a few times, but only found the part where they explain the recipes interesting. He's got a ton of shows though and only recently started another cooking show.
