Gino’s Italy: Like Mamma Used To Make

Series overview

Gino D’Acampo returns to his motherland to learn more from the Mammas of Italy for this brand new six-part ITV series.

In a personal food odyssey, Gino will be travelling the length and breadth of Italy from Naples to Arezzo and Bologna, to encounter local dishes from families and their matriarchs along the way.

The series celebrates the women who have fed Italy and shaped the country’s cuisine through the ages. Starting in his place of birth where he learnt to cook in the kitchens of his Nonna Flora and Mamma Alba, Gino is going back to his roots to celebrate all the women whose kitchens have fuelled Italy through their incredible food.

With recipes including Pasta al Genovese, Steak Fiorentine and Aubergine Parmigiana, Gino will have his work cut out to keep up with the women running the kitchens which he visits.

Episode 3

Procida is a hidden gem of an island that Gino cannot wait to explore – dwarfed by its neighbouring islands of Capri and Ischia, this tiny island has a big reputation when it comes to food. In this episode, Gino will meet the two women who are at the top of their game on this mellow island, making waves, changing the culinary landscape, and leaving Gino in awe of their achievements. He concludes his time here by cooking up Trofie Pasta with lemon pesto and prawns.
