Hosted by award-winning Australian chef, restaurateur and cookbook author Pete Evans, MOVEABLE FEAST WITH FINE COOKING takes viewers on a culinary journey, combing flavorful ingredients, top chefs and beautiful locations for the ultimate dining experience. In season five, Pete offers a unique culinary experience with an overseas trip to Italy and France. He visits the towns of Bologna, Parma, Modena and Turin, where he tastes the local prosciuttos, cheeses, and vinegars from the region. He also tours a medieval castle and the farm estate of Antica Corte Pallavicina, home to chef Massimo Spigaroli, one of Italy's top salumi producers and the great-grandson of a farmer who cured hams for opera great Giuseppe Verdi. Then it's over to France where Pete and his team travel from the salt flats near Arles, up through Provence and Dijon to Paris. Along the way, he stops at Château d'Ancy-le-Franc, a lavish Renaissance palace which houses one of the largest collections of mural paintings from the 16th and 17th centuries. Back in the U.S., Pete heads to the West coast and travels north from San Luis Obispo to Carmel, California and continues up through to Washington state to experience the wines and the bountiful produce that the area has to offer. Afterwards, it's off to Santa Fe and Taos, New Mexico for an authentic taste of the Southwest.
