In teaming up for Nick Stellino's Family Kitchen, Nick Stellino
and KCTS Television are continuing a successful relationship that
began in 1994, when Stellino came to the Seattle public television
station to tape the first season of the Mediterranean cooking and
dining series, Cucina Amore. Within a year of its 1995 debut, Cucina
Amore became one of the most popular food programs on U. S. television,
and ultimately was ranked as US public television's number-one "how-to"
series (Nielsen, January 1998). In 1999, Stellino hosted the PBS
special, Nick Stellino's Dinner Party, a lively culinary tour of
three American cities produced by KCTS.
Nick Stellino's Family Kitchen airs on US public television stations.
The series is a co-production of KCTS/Seattle Public Television
and Stellino Productions.
