From Scratch arrives on Netflix on Friday, Oct. 21. It’s a heartfelt show that tells the love story between an American woman and a Sicilian chef. If this sounds like something you’d enjoy watching, you absolutely must know who’s in the cast.
From Scratch is an upcoming Netflix original series created by Attica Locke and Tembi Locke. It’s a television adaptation of Tembi’s memoir From Scratch: A Memoir of Love, Sicily and Finding Home. The story follows a woman named Amy who meets and falls in love with a chef named Lino while studying abroad in Italy. As they build a life together in the United States, they face unforeseen challenges, including cultural differences, Lino’s struggle to adjust to living in another country, and Lino’s cancer diagnosis. With the couple’s future threatened, the two very different families must come together to make it through these challenging times.
The romantic drama series boasts an incredible cast, and we’re excited to share with you who you can expect to see in the show!
