David Rocco’s Dolce India is a follow up to the internationally successful David Rocco’s Dolce Vita and David Rocco’s Amalfi Getaway. The series takes its star chef to India, where David will be a fish-out-of-water in a land he’s never visited. World-renowned for his Italian culinary skills, David embarks on a quest to challenge himself – and those daring enough to taste his fusion creations – by melding ingredients and techniques from his beloved Italy with those he’s never experienced before.
Each episode presents an Indian theme; an ingredient, a dish, or a regional way of cooking. Having been shown how to prepare a challenging dish, David then takes over a kitchen to prepare an “Indi-talian” fusion dish. Stuffed naan meets panzerotti/calzone, or perhaps an Indian-style risotto incorporating the local cheese ‘paneer’ and peas – a spin on both the Indian classic dish Mattar Paneer and the Italian Risi e Bisi.
With his reputation at stake and the potential for immediate failure in every episode, the obstacles David must overcome are greater than he’s ever faced.
