Traditional Italian Cooking in the Electronic Age - Ciao Italia's new Web site

Wow! That's all I can say about the new Web site rolled out by Ciao Italia with Mary Ann Esposito.

Looking for a recipe for one of Mary Ann's traditional and authentic Italian dishes? Click the electronic recipe file and browse by category - very easy navigation. Many of the recipes have video in addition to the text recipe.

Missed an episode? Want to see one again? Or maybe you've just discovered Ciao Italia and want to catch up on previous shows? There are 18 - yes, eighteen - seasons of episodes online.

Ciao Italia with Mary Ann Esposito is the longest running cooking show on television. WSBE Rhode Island PBS is proud to co-produce the series, and to be the location of Mary Ann's Ciao Italia cucina (kitchen) every summer. Each year for two weeks in June,  the crew rolls in from New Hampshire to tape a new season of shows. I'll tell you, those are the two most aromatic weeks of the year at the station!
