This week Gino reaches the town of Alberobello with its cone-shaped Trulli houses. Here he gets a lesson in making the local pasta, orecchiette, which means ‘little ears’ due to its shape.
Next he heads to the city of Lecce, which is known as the 'Florence of the South' thanks to its stunning baroque architecture. Gino finds out about two local traditions; cartapesta and the Pizzica dance. There's also a surprise in store for him!
Leaving Lecce, the chef returns to the dramatic coast to create a chicken skewers dish with a sticky marinade and a healthy bean and fennel salad.
