What’s tall, dark, handsome, entertaining and knows its way around a kitchen? The latest sensation in home cooking and entertainment, Vincenzo’s Plate!

Vincenzo’s Plate is a YouTube Cooking Show with a focus on cooking, determined to teach the world, one video recipe at a time that you don’t need to be a professional chef to impress friends, family and yourself with mouth-watering Italian recipes right out of your very own kitchen, whilst having a laugh (and a glass of vino!).

I am Vincenzo Prosperi, a 30-something-year-old Italian-born food lover and comedian. Now living in Sydney, my youtube channel launched in late 2013, and videos have collectively had millions of views already and have reached thousands of subscribers.

I created my YouTube channel with an aim to equip those interested, with the basics in Italian cooking (to start off with), teaching traditional techniques I learnt from my Nonna (Grandmother), with a few twists and turns intertwined through every recipe.

No matter what your flavour preference, there is a dish for every occasion, from a simple Spinach Frittata recipe to more difficult recipes like fresh pizza and bread dough, they are all home delivered the same way, via video recipe and in style.

The concept for Vincenzo’s Plate, was devised when friends and family alike kept pestering me for italian recipes of my dishes and although I would explain how very easy they were to recreate, few believed me and continued to dine out at Italian restaurants —some of which are an adaptation of the real thing, or as I bluntly describe, “fake Italian food”.

With high demand for more frequent recipes and recipes in a written form, the bigger picture is cooking away, with the aim to bring my flair for entertaining and home cooking into kitchens and dinner parties all over the world via my own TV series and a documentary which fuses food with the hidden treasures of Italy and a wealth of laughter along the way.

I am not pretentious or pretending to be a master of all things food, I am relatable, friendly and make Italian Food Recipes attainable and not so serious!

The Vincenzo’s Plate website and Italian Food blog dedicated to all things food and fun went live in late 2014 as a result of increasing demand from followers all over the globe for more content. The site has just had an update to ensure it remains easily accessible with a great user experience.

For Vincenzo’s Plate, Italian food is not just a passion, it’s a way of life with a load of laughter along the way.
