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 7 - Calabria
 
Tonight Gino reveals the rugged and wild region that is Calabria. Its landscape is as breathtaking as the powerhouse ingredients it produces and this week it’s about fire and spice, with eye watering chillies, a new wonder salami, and then an Italian ingredient that is as English as they come. Join Gino as he explores this vast region by train, taking in the coast and the mountains, and creates two dishes in honour of this wild region.
