We are really excited about it. First of all we've created a whole new look. If you've been here before, you'll find that the site is more comprehensive with new features. Browse around, check out videos, recipes and photos from our series, and get information on the places and people you've seen in the shows. We hope you'll bookmark it and use it as a resource for recipes, kitchen tips and even as help planning your trip to Italy.
We now have a message board, so you can post comments and suggestions. As well, we've had emails from all around the world asking us about a soundtrack. Now I'm proud to say we have one available featuring some of the great artists who you've heard on the show for the first three seasons. You can also sample the site.
I want to thank our great team behind the redesign who really put their hearts into it. Rutendo Sabeta, Mary Pat O'Meara and Leah Herrera, who put in countless hours working on the design, the style and coding. Karen Gordon, who works with me on the text. To my wife and partner in this endeavor, Nina Rocco, thanks, as always for your great advice, and your encouragement and support on this project. The last word goes to our incredible editor Lucas K. Labrecque who for the last 3 years kept encouraging us to take on a redesign. Mille Grazie to all.
