Cooking show fires cook over Italian delicacy

At noon every day there is a cooking challenge, La Prova del Cuoco, where two cooks prepare their dishes in an alloted space of time. The hostess converses with each as they go through the steps before the on-show cook  judges the entries. Many times a wine connoisseur appears with suggestions for appropriate wines.

Beppe Bigazzi was a regular on the show, preparing various dishes and giving cooking pointers, up until the other day when he, out of the blue, started talking about a particular Tuscan delicacy. Stewed Cat. I am sure it came as a surprise to everyone...well, certainly for the hostess!

Someone was kind enough to put up a translation so you will understand what they are saying.

The Australian covered the story here.
