San Vincenzo

Eating in the Sun Episode 7 of 10

Celebrity MasterChef winner Nadia Sawalha is sent on a dramatic, colourful and tasty culinary journey through some of the best restaurants in Europe and beyond, by some of the best chefs in the UK.

Each week, Nadia is challenged to recreate a famous chef's most memorable holiday meal in the very same restaurant in which they originally ate it. She has just two days to slot into a working kitchen, learn the recipes and source the ingredients before then having to serve the meal to her mystery challenger. The twist? She doesn't know who she is cooking for until they eventually walk through the restaurant door.

Nadia is challenged by one of the UK's leading culinary lights to work in a small Italian kitchen in Tuscany, alongside a chef widely considered to be one of the best - and most temperamental - in Italy, Fulvio Pierangeli.

It is a truly Tuscan menu, as Nadia tries to master some of the greatest ravioli in Italy, cook wild boar fillet to perfection, and make a fabulously tasty spiced figs and ice-cream dessert.

Will the greatest chef in Italy take to Nadia or will he hate her? Who is the mystery challenger? And will it be fireworks and fisticuffs at dawn as she tries to cook up his most memorable holiday meal of a lifetime?
