In this second of a two episodes on Florence, we enjoy more of the exquisite artistic treasures of the city that propelled Europe out of the Middle Ages. Then we side-trip to a couple of rival cities and cultural capitals in their own right, Pisa and Lucca, where we’ll marvel at a tipsy tower, circle a city on its ramparts, and enjoy some Puccini in his hometown.

NEW SCANDINAVIAN COOKING WITH ANDREAS VIESTAD III is a rich visual tour of Scandinavian cuisine, culture and history, hosted by award-winning food journalist and cookbook author Andreas Viestad. Acting as both chef and guide, Andreas treats viewers to an eye-opening voyage through Norway’s fjords, cities and countryside, where he cooks in some remarkably offbeat — not to mention difficult — locations. Combining the elegant simplicity of Provencal and Tuscan cuisine with the ingredients of his native country, Andreas prepares dishes with a history dating back to the Vikings. This season, Andreas cooks Norwegian-style lobster in a remote lighthouse, creates garden-fresh recipes on his family farm and scales the country’s highest mountain to make a hearty cream of mushroom soup.

Rudy Maxa's World
Sun, 03/02/2014 - 11:00pm
Cape Town is a nexus of cultures in a setting so stunning, it’s called the “new California” or “Africa’s Riviera.” Where else in the world can you wake up in a cosmopolitan city, spend the afternoon with penguins, ride a funicular to the edge of a continent, and watch the sun set from a beach with a glass of local wine in hand? From the dizzying heights of the city’s iconic symbol, Table Mountain, to the rugged cliffs and wild flowers of the Cape Peninsula, this episode captures the natural wonders that surround this city where an urbane waterfront contrasts with the nearby townships where most of Cape Town’s three million residents live. This is an intimate look at a city reinventing itself as residents and government work to put the injustice of apartheid behind them.
