Asheville, NC – FYI network, known for producing hit series Food Porn and Tiny House Nation, among others, is releasing a brand new series: The Know it All Guide To… It’s a fast-paced, fun, fact-filled series about the world’s most popular foods that debuts on July 31. Find out what was the largest cheese ever made, or how beer is produced on the moon. The program delivers the best places to eat, and stuffs you full of great facts, hacks, and tricks for a food journey that will leave you feeling, well, stuffed.
On August 13 at 10 p.m. EST on FYI, check on The Know it All Guide To…Bread, when Asheville’s own Chef Anthony Cerrato of Strada Italiano appears on the episode, sharing the accolades of gluten-free breads.
After discovering an allergy to gluten, Cerrato went gluten free in 2011, and, in turn, caters to those with food allergies at his restaurant. Guests can opt to order all but three pastas sans gluten as well as bread, allowing a true Italian dinner experience to those with gluten intolerance. The program’s episode featuring Strada centers around Cerrato’s signature (and delicious) gluten-free bread recipe as well as his views on Italian cooking and catering to guests with gluten allergies.
“If you have a food allergy, you should be able to come into my house and get what you need,” says Cerrato. “That’s what real Italian hospitality is.”
In regards to being on the show, “It was super intense but a great experience,” he explains. “I love that I was given the opportunity to share what I know about gluten-free cooking.”
If you miss Chef Cerrato’s episode on August 14, it will be available on the website FYI.tv and the FYI app approximately 24 hours after it airs on cable.
