December 10, 2014; Atlanta, GA; – Contemporary Living Network, Inc. (CLN) announces the addition of children’s cooking show “Piccolo Chef” to its growing library of lifestyle programming. Hosted by Tina Fanelli Moraccini, episodes of the educational show will be available soon for streaming on

“Piccolo Chef” is based on the successful Los Angeles-area children’s cooking school of the same name, where children are taught the importance of healthy eating and time spent in the kitchen with others. Episodes of “Piccolo Chef” bring viewers to the source of their ingredients, from a fishery to a farmers market, or even in your backyard. At the Piccolo Chef kitchen, Tina showcases ingredients in easy to follow recipes that encourage children to experience new textures and flavors, using real kitchen tools and cooking techniques, sometimes alongside celebrities such as Debi Derryberry (voice of Jimmy Neutron) and Pizza World Champion Fabio Ferrari.

Tina added, “What we have found is that when the children take an interest in cooking, they tend to make healthier choices. The younger they start, the better, as these wise choices stay with them. Our role is to encourage them, enable them, and to promote this curiosity and interest.”

Walter Biscardi, Jr., President and Executive Producer of CLN, said “We’re very excited to be bringing a great show like “Piccolo Chef” to our viewers. I’ve had a long working relationship with Tina, having worked on post-production for the original series back in 2010. Piccolo Chef is a fantastic concept and when the opportunity arose to bring the series to CLN, it was a no brainer. We’re very proud of having Piccolo Chef as a part of our network.”

Before co-founding the Piccolo Chef cooking school with business partner Lilian Palmieri, Tina spent twelve years at the Istituto Italiano di Cultura in Los Angeles where she organized countless events which underscored authentic Italian culture. She’s currently involved in a new Italian food experience for the American culinary audience.  Tina is also the co-author of “The Piccolo Chef Cookbook: Healthy Cooking With Your Kids.”
