Celebrity Chef Chris Cosentino travels to Italy to ride the famed Strade-Bianche and get a taste of La Dolce Vita.
This 25 minute film follows Chris as he explores Florence’s Market Centrale; shares a special meal with famed butcher, Dario Cecchini; and hangs out on and off the bike with multi-World Champion Paolo Bettini and world tour pro Daniel Oss.
Chris is on course for all the drama during the professional 2022 Strade- Bianche race and then shares his own experience riding those same white roads at the Strade-Bianche Gran Fondo, finishing at the Piazza Del Campo in Siena.
Cosentino is author of the James Beard Award nominated cookbook for a Single Subject, Offal Good: Cooking from the Heart with Guts (2017), celebrating whole-animal cooking, and 2012 cookbook Beginnings: My Way to Start a Meal. Cosentino also collaborated with Marvel and wrote Wolverine: In the Flesh.
Cosentino won season four of BRAVO’s “”Top Chef Masters,” earning more than $140,000 for The Michael J. Fox Foundation, and he is a member of Chefs Cycle, a 300-mile annual bicycle ride that raises funds and awareness in support of No Kid Hungry. An avid cyclist, Cosentino also founded CampoVelo in 2017, an annual weekend-long culinary and biking event that raises money for Chefs Cycle.
