Italian Cooking With Silvia Cianci
Italian & Mediterranean Cooking At Its Best!
One of the great undiscovered talents in the cooking world, Italian born Silvia Cianci, is getting ready to spread her wings. She has had several opportunities to show her talents publicly by placing high within several cooking competitions. She won the 2009 People's Choice Award in the St. Louis Kargill Taste of Elegance pork cooking competition, and was one of three finalists, out of 16,000 submissions, in the 2010 5th Annual Cavit Gourmet Pizza Classic competition hosted by Bon Appetite in New York. Now, she is taking on her latest venture by sharing her Italian & Mediterranean cooking skills and knowledge across social networks and the internet.
Abruzzo born and bred, from her hometown of Lanciano, Silvia began her cooking education at a very young age - cooking with her Nona (grandmother) in the kitchen after grade school. Then, as she grew older and her parents began traveling more and more, she found herself enamored by all of the different flavors and dishes that she was exposed to in other regions of Italy, as well as within other countries in the Mediterranean. She continued exploring these flavor profile intricacies and similarities into adulthood, where she finally began looking at cooking as a profession instead of just as a passion. She cooked in the kitchens of Italy, and then migrated here to the U.S. at the age of 27. The United States began to expand Silvia's education to include American cuisine as well as other cooking methodologies and techniques which are popular here in the U.S.
Silvia continues to educate herself and to grow professionally by studying the writings and methodologies of some of the top chefs in the industry, as well as traveling back to Italy each and every year to keep herself in touch with her roots within Italian cuisine. Now, she begins a new venture that will take her even further and will allow the rest of America, and possibly the world, to come with her.

Cooking is a Passion!
Cooking is an art form, there is no doubt about it. However, unlike painting or sculpture, with enough study, practice, and effort, everyone can learn how to do it well. I'm not saying that all of you can be amazing Chef's. However, I'm saying that all of you can become talented cooks - you just have to reach your full potential.
Just like any other art form, cooking requires passion. If you don't love to cook, or at least enjoy learning new things, then you will not enjoy doing it. However, as any golfer can tell you, sometimes it takes that one perfect execution to begin fueling a desire to come back. It is that one success that begins to fire up a passion inside of you, and sometimes achieving that success is the most difficult step.
So, I have now taken it upon myself to not only help you to achieve that very first cooking success, but to continue doing so again and again. I will show you how to cook a specific dish with each video, or how to conduct one cooking preparatory task properly. This will allow you to learn cooking techniques properly, and to build your cooking knowledge until you can rely upon your own cooking instincts. I was born with it, and now will share it with you!
