Pietro Demaio is a Melbourne GP with a passion for his Italian heritage and the traditional preserving recipes from his homeland. Pietro's parents emigrated from Calabria to Australia with a 'heart full of traditions, stories, recipes and skills' to help them settle into their new home. Pietro loved the traditional preserved foods his parents made and shared, but outside of the family home, these old preserving skills were being lost and pushed aside to make way for more modern techniques.
