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 4
 
Tonight Gino is on the ancient island of Elba, famous for Napoleon, but also in Italy, for its honey and its iron production.
 
Gino meets an octogenarian who is known as the ‘bee whisperer’ who creates award winning honey, he visits the now disused mines to experience Italy’s past and no trip to Elba is complete without a visit to Napoleon’s house.
 
Gino’s experiences are the inspiration for a melt in your mouth honey chicken dish and an easy-peasy risotto cooked on a beach made of iron!
