Italian Food Net is an online cooking resource that is packed with some very delicious recipes, but with this site, not only do you get the great recipe, but you get cooking demonstrations, too. Most of the videos last anywhere betwen 4-6 minutes long, some shorter, and teach you some basic as well as some not so basic recipes.

There are three chefs who demonstrate various recipes: first and second course dishes, antipasti, desserts, breads and more. The demonstrations will leave your mouth watering as these chefs serve up some great meals. The videos are in Italian, but many of them have subtitles. Even so, the Italian used is standard, the chefs speak well, and even if you're not completely fluent, you shouldn't have any trouble following their instructions. With the help of a good dictionary and some study, it won't take you long at all to get through these recipes. Plus, it's a great way to practice your Italian and your listening skills while learning how to serve up some authentic Italian dishes at the same time!

Buon appetito!
