Series overview
 
Gino D’Acampo is back in his homeland of Italy, and in this eight-part series he is exploring the Mediterranean coast, from the glittering elegance of its cliff-top towns, to its mountainous rustic villages. He’ll be immersing himself in the rugged, wild islands, traveling along dramatic coastal roads, and across the sea, to reveal the best-kept secrets of this coast.
 
Along the way, of course, he’ll be serving up plenty of mouth watering authentic food.
 
Gino says: “I'm exploring the places that I think reveal the very best of the Italian west coast and its cuisine, from the Tuscan coast in the north, the middle stretch studded with show-stopping Sorrento and Capri, and right down to the southern tip of the boot and the Aeolian Islands.”
 
Episode 2
 
Continuing his culinary odyssey along the Mediterranean coast, tonight Gino sails to the no 1 island to visit in Italy - beautiful Capri - to sample the Dolce Vita, meeting the man who made his name photographing the iconic first lady, Jackie Kennedy.
 
While there, he also unearths the origins of Italy’s most famous digestivo.
 
Back on the mainland, Gino goes in search of a unique little ingredient that packs a punch in the culinary world, and creates two show-stopping dishes along the way.
