Biba Caggiano is a cookbook author, teacher, head chef at her namesake, Biba Restaurant, and host of the TV show, Biba’s Italian Kitchen. In this slide show, she walks you through the steps of making a classic Italian dish, tortellini en brodo: tender tortellini stuffed with meat and cheese. Biba learned the dish by watching her mother, and now her whole family helps her prepare it for Christmas and New Year’s Eve.

Watch the slide show to learn how to make fresh pasta, cut it, fill it, and shape it into crowns. You’ll also learn to make Biba’s aromatic meat filling and deeply flavored broth the tortellini are traditionally cooked and served in.

Not too many people know the history of the chicken pitcher. I have one as I lived in La Maddelena for 3 years and miss it terribly and especially the food!! I will keep watching for your posts and videos.

Thank you very much.

Best regards,
