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 5 - Salerno and Paestum
 
Tonight, Gino is in Italy’s food basket, Salerno and the home of one of its food heroes… water buffalo Mozzarella.
 
Gino has to get his hands dirty before he can claim this world-class cheese by massaging the majestic beasts. He also takes a trip to the ancient ruins in Paestum and learns how to make handmade fusilli pasta the traditional way, up in the beautiful mountains that overlook the sea.
