Once Upon a Time… TLN Rome based correspondent Kylie Flavell abandoned a successful career in Australia to go in search of the Italian 'Dolce Vita'. While in Italy, Kylie stumbled upon Patrick’s cooking blog from England and was curious to know more. Like her, he was a dreamer and left a high-powered job in law to focus on his love of cooking. She wrote Patrick an email asking him to go on a whirlwind romp through Italy. Patrick thought she was crazy but packed his bags for a trip to Rome in late 2011. They hit it off and now spend their time cooking, laughing and travelling together.
TLN joins the adventure that Patrick and Kylie take as they search to understand the heart of Italian people and their food. Their challenge in each episode is to prepare a homemade meal for the locals using what they've learned, tasted and stolen – all in a day!
