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 8 - Aeolian islands
 
Often featured on bucket lists, The Aeolian Islands is the final destination on Gino’s epic coastal journey.
 
Tonight he visits the two contrasting islands of Salina and Panarea to find out what they contribute the the italian kitchen, and it turns out, quite a lot.
 
Join Gino as he finds out what keeps Robert Di Niro coming back to these islands, and has a watery encounter with a creature of the deep.
