The latest season of “Storyteller in the Kitchen” marks Nick Sellino’s 31st anniversary on public television. Nick Stellino’s path to his successful career as a television chef and cookbook author began in Italy, where he grew up in a family of accomplished cooks who shared their knowledge and love of cooking with him.
Nick was born and raised in Palermo, a city rich in culture, music, and culinary tradition. Life there was good, and he was surrounded by family. But from early childhood, Nick dreamed of moving to America. In 1975, at the age of 17, he achieved that goal. The move was a dream come true wrapped in a series of challenges, but Nick had always loved America, and a good challenge. By the late 1980s, he had built a successful career as a stockbroker.
