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

There’s more to Tuscany than Chianti as Gino reveals a very different side of this much visited region, one that is steeped in medieval heritage and its linked culinary customs. Women are very much at the heart of this, and he meets the successors as well as the creators of these cherished traditions and hopes to learn some of these lessons himself. Gino finishes his day cooking up a delicious steak Fiorentina.
