Eggs in Hell! (from my YouTube channel)

Screen Shot 2018-01-23 at 12.24.25 PM

Welcome to Italian Healthy Fast Food! This classic dish, also known as Eggs in Purgatory, epitomizes Italian, simple home-cooking at its best. Traditionally it is made with leftover sugo (tomato sauce, the type you dress your pasta with), simply reheated with a little water. The eggs are cracked straight into the sauce and poached for a few minutes, until set to your liking. And if you don’t have leftover sauce, it is very easy to make your own, as you can see in my new video recipe. Why have the eggs gone from Purgatory to Hell? The addition of a LOT of chillie! Suit your taste, add as much or as little as you can handle.

DAY 2 RECIPE 5.00_02_30_02.Still004

My dear friends, it is with great excitement and little trepidation that I make this announcement: I have launched a YouTube channel dedicated to home-cooking, featuring brand new, easy recipes that cater from everyone. From Vegan cakes, to easy focaccia, gluten free cookies, sturdy sausage stews and home-made pasta! This is a major undertaking as it is entirely, 100% my own effort. I have written the content, tested the recipes, styled the set (my own kitchen!), prepped the food, washed the dishes, and broken a few glasses in the process (clumsy!) Then I hired a camera team and we shot it, at my house, while the kids were at school and baby Luna was snoozing or quietly playing in the background (sometimes you can hear her cooing too). Over 2 massive days we managed to record 10 mini episodes that I plan to release over the next weeks, with two already available on my channel.

This has been an entirely different process to the shows I have previously made with SBS and ABC. Although I was indeed a creator, writer and producer of my shows, I also had a team of expert TV professionals to guide me along the way, in a effort to create something that was entertaining and in line with the broadcasting network. I have been very lucky to be able to produce two shows like MADE IN ITALY and SILVIA’S ITALIAN TABLE, but the time seems ripe now for me to try and build my own content, in a simpler and very authentic way. This is me, in my Sydney kitchen, with no fancy lighting, equipment or elaborate make up. This is as close as it gets to being in the room with me. No bells and whistles. And no commercial breaks either!

I truly hope you enjoy the experience. Please take a moment to visit my channel and subscribe (it’s free and easy) and if you like the content, please comment and share, so we can create a nice community of like minded people. The more of you take the time to support this and subscribe, the more I am able to produce more content, so I thank you sincerely for your support.

That’s all for now, love
