The narrating for each area was OK, but could've been more in depth. The focus is definitely on food, but instead of giving the viewer an all-around feel for the local cuisine, this DVD concentrates only on a few recipes from local restaurants, which you cannot replicate, because most of the ingredients are hard to find in the US.
The quality is very low, blurry, and the composition is almost amateur-like. It looks a bit outdated, the music is the same old, lousy Italian stereo-typical mandolin that plays throughout the documentary.
OK, fine, the price is what it is so you can't expect a Ken Burns film shoot, but I just think this product doesn't do my country justice!! I would suggest to save your money and watch better shows on the Travel Channel or the Food Network.

4.0 out of 5 stars Northern Italy and Tuscany January 9, 2007
The scenery was magnificent. I did not like the female narrator. She did not pronounce the Italian correctly and that annoyed me. Overall, I loved seeing different Northern Italian cities.

5.0 out of 5 stars Learn to cook. February 3, 2007
Excellent demonstrations and recipes.

Most involve layers of vegtables and meat cooked together.

The narrator is so so, but does get the point across.

The landscapes are beautiful.

4.0 out of 5 stars 60% Commentary, 40% Cooking February 25, 2008
By JWyn

We find the "Flavors" DVDs in general are 60% commentary on locale/history and site seeing, 40% actual cooking. This one is no different. The site seeing parts are interesting as is the cuisine. As others may have mentioned the video quality of the cooking spots does seem amateur.
