    My favorite part was Dan’s whispering, “She’s [Marisa] not so good at making the pasta.” Too funny!

  2. Marcia

    Mushroom hunting — I have read about growing your own on Sunset magazine blog.

    Of course, the scenery was outstanding. Maybe I can go some day.

  3. “He’s been working on this for a long time I could tell.”
    The stache says it all.
    and the fact that you can buy underwear in the open market!
    Italy sounds so intriguing!

  4. My favorite part was when they got out of the car and Dan was talking about how he would shift the gears and hit Rocco in the knees!

    I loved seeing the forest where they were hunting the wild mushrooms, too!

  5. kacie

    It was incredible to see how they go into a forest and just search for mushrooms then gently scrape off the spores to keep the process so natural! Such fun videos!

  6. Lindsay Allen

    I want to buy expensive underwear in the market πŸ™‚ But I’d rather eat that pasta! Yumo!

  7. My Favorite Part was the drive up through the mountains to get to the mushroom hunters. It was beautiful and I could almost feel the cold with the snow-topped mountains.

  8. Hillary Crump

    This is probably so random. But my favorite part was seeing the different bread in the kitchen at the restaurant. If you blinked you might of missed it…But it made want some good bread.

  9. Melissa

    Loved Sauro’s mustache haha! I just love seeing Italy! I would love to be there! Again, I would love to go cook and make fresh authentic italian food! Love it!

  10. Donna

    I liked the part in the beginning where Rocco tells the group that they can buy some underwear. Unexpected and made me laugh.

    The mushroom people and Sauro were adorable too.

    Thanks for the opportunity.

  11. I can’t believe that Rocco yelling, “Sauro!” worked! And the ‘shache, wow!
    The “Mushroom Keepers” were the most adorable couple I’ve ever seen in my life, they looked like they were right out of a fairy tale. And, I totally want to go eat at Aoristo now, what a gorgeous restaurant.

  12. Watching the chefs forage for fresh mushrooms is so funny. It’s great to see just how fresh the food is – and their meal looks delicious! My other favorite part of this is hearing their favorite part of the day πŸ™‚

  13. Oooh, my favorite part in this one was when they had to go find Saro and Rocco is just walking through the street yelling SARO! SARO!!!!

    Hey, it worked, didn’t it?

  14. Kara

    I found them looking for the mushrooms to be fascinating! So pretty, in an odd way. πŸ™‚

  15. Lisa A

    I loved the “mushroom keepers” and Rocco saying they could only be better in miniature! How awesome!

  16. I love the part where they were looking for Sauro! That was hilarious. I love Italy and can’t wait to go again πŸ™‚

  17. Pam Shank

    I first loved seeing the open air market then how much fun to gather the ingredients for your dish the way they did. Fixing a meal with others like they did would make it so special and then looking at the food…looked so good!

  18. Stacie Aho

    That looks so fun! I love when they are looking for Sauro. They’re all just yelling his name! Haha.

  19. Lynne Saltz

    My favorite part was finding the mushrooms. I never in my life ever thought about picking them from the forest floor. They come from the market in boxes right? I also loved seeing the old italian men. They all look like my grandfather in some way.

  20. Aww…. I remember when I was in Russia and we went mushroom hunting. Brings back sweet memeories. And I thought it was sooo weird?? Yet so neat.

  21. So I totally loved Sauro’s “mush”-stache. (See what I did there? LOL) And I wished the forest people were miniature, too. I am so hungry for pasta now!

  22. mandy

    sauro’s mustache was pretty amazing. i learned a lot about mushrooms, brushing off the spores is pretty cool!

  23. Lindsay

    I like how they just yelled “Saro” and it led him right to him. That chicken alfredo looked so yummy!

  24. This video had me cracking up! I was dying when Rocco was talking about Sauros mustache and how impressive it was. I like the whole video, but this part gave me a giggle πŸ™‚

  25. Okay so my favorite part of this video was when they were foraging in the Italian forest for mushrooms. How fun is that? And then they got to use those mushrooms to create a beautiful meal, that would be such an experience. In my dreams, right?

  26. Megan Dinsdale

    My favorite part was just seeing Italy. I want to go there so badly. It is absolutely gorgeous!

  27. Lindsay Allen

    I love seeing the Italian atmosphere. I’ve been wanting to go to Italy for several years so this was a sneak peek into what I will hopefully see before too long!

  28. Carrie

    I love everything about Italy….the fabulous food markets, the countryside, the food…need I say more. Italy is my dream vacation!! Love Italian food!!!!!!

  29. Ginny Fisher

    Loving the marketplace with all the fresh garden varieties, not to mention the underwear available for purchase right next to their table! Sauro really did have a remarkable mustache!

  30. “every time Dan shifted gears, he hit my kneecaps!” If you are tall, like me, you know exactly what he is talking about! That was terrific!

  31. Heather Cole

    I liked it when they were looking for Sauro, and how they were just yelling his name around. It reminds me of my family!

  32. hecowe

    I loved learning that you have to scrape spores off the mushrooms so that you can keep the mushroom patch going. How cool!

  33. Whitney

    I liked watching the cute Sauro. I lughted because he is so short compared to Rocco, but then at the end noticed he is the same height as Marissa! haha. Great giveaway!

  34. It would be amazing to go looking for wild mushrooms in Italy! I don’t even like mushrooms but just the thrill of the chase would be amazing!

  35. Another great Italian adventure for those 3! My favorite was watching Marisa and Dan making pasta or should I say trying to make the pasta. There were several other great things about the video too… like the beautiful scenery, the adorable “forest people”, and how can we forget Sauro!
    All so great! Thanks Jenny!

  36. I love Sauro! I think his “tremendous mustache” was bigger than his actual mouth! And the “cutest forest people you’ve ever met”? so funny!

  37. Lisa

    Mushroom hunting looked like so much fun! I love mushroom hunting, and they found some amazing ones.

  38. Good Morning, Jenny!
    My favorite part of this video was when Sauro came and joined everyone for dinner. He was too funny chatting everyone’s ears off in Italian. And holy cow-did that pasta ever look good?!
