Rocco DiSpirito's Now Eat This! Italy: Episode 4, Pollo al Forno (Video)

Posted Jun 24th 2013 01:37 PMUpdated Jun 24th 2013 03:36 PM



A typical must-do list for travelers to Italy runs as long as the Appian Way. You must see the Vatican. You must commune with David and the diners at The Last Supper. You must go back in time to 79 A.D. in Pompeii. You must wander around Venice until you get lost. A list can go on and on and on.

Italy offers so many significant things to do, though, that unless you've got a year or two, it's hard to actually do everything. Yet one thing makes on everyone's list: You must eat in Italy. For sustenance, of course, but also because Italy's cuisine is among the most celebrated in the world.

Among those who have eaten their way through Italy is New York Times best selling author and celebrity chef Rocco DiSpirito. In Now Eat This! Italy, a new video series for AOL, DiSpirito travels to Italy to learn how to make great Italian food in the shadow of real Italian mothers. The twist? He wants to make great Italian food that won't expand your waistline.

This week DiSpirito takes to the kitchen with mama Carmela Vacca to prepare Pollo al Forno, an oven-roasted chicken dish.
