After 700 miles on the road, Gino finally reaches the end of his Adriatic journey. But before reaching the very tip of the heel of Italy’s boot, he stops off at the small town of Roca and cools off in the crystal clear waters.
After a short journey, he reaches Santa Maria di Leuca and and meets the priest of Puglia’s most southerly church, later cooking him a classic saffron risotto topped with balsamic chicken.
This area is famous for its enormous waterfall which cascades down from the church during public holidays. Gino gets the chance to turn the switch and release thousands of litres of water into the Adriatic below!
Finally, for the last dish of the series - and with the sea and white sandy beaches as a backdrop, Gino cooks locally caught swordfish with rosemary sautéed potatoes and tangy gremolata.
