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 3
 
Tonight Gino reveals the hidden Tuscany with its beaches and traditional cowboys. Not one to shy away from a challenge, Gino saddles up and joins the cowboys to learn their centuries old traditions, before hosting a beach BBQ blowout. 
 
Gino’s next stop is in the region of Lazio via an ancient Roman highway before stopping off at the home of every Italian’s favourite olive, Gaeta. Here he learns how to make this little town’s signature street food before cooking up a feast on the shores of the picturesque town.
