Episode Info

Antonio Carluccio and Gennaro Contaldo return for more culinary investigations into Italian culture. Gennaro and Antonio look at the modern Italian man and ask if there is still a place in Italy for macho men. They start in the rugged mountain villages of the Lazio where men still tend their flocks, provide for the family and prove their worth by demonstrating how much they can eat. But in Rome, they find a different story. With women here increasingly taking control, they struggle to find what in their fathers' day would be considered real men, and instead are given light-weight meals and encouraged to spend time in the gym. They only discover 'real' men when they visit a prison. The truth is that the majority of men are adapting to a more modern way of thinking and the good news is they are cooking.
