Cooking with Culture, held at Vecchia Pizzeria in Hoover, will receive statewide and national exposure with a feature on Simply Southern TV. The cooking classes were co-founded and are led by Chef Benard Tamburello, an American Italian, and Giuliana Russo-Skinner, an Italian American.
The show will premiere locally on WBMA-TV 33/40 in Birmingham on Sunday, July 3, at 6:30 a.m. and will be rebroadcast on national cable network RFD-TV the following Wednesday at 3 p.m. Central time.
“Thanks to Cooking with Culture, I can now make pizza from scratch, and I also know the story behind one of my favorite foods,” said Simply Southern TV reporter Melissa Bowman. “The classes are fun with easy-to-follow instructions and offer an added benefit of lessons in Italian history and traditions.”
Simply Southern TV is a 30-minute show that celebrates Alabama’s farmers, gardeners, makers, rural communities and one-of-a-kind destinations. Episodes are also available on the show’s website at www.SimplySouthernTV.net.
