About this deal

In the clip below, Gino is in his hometown of Torre Del Greco and is reunited with some of the women who helped to raise him and inspired him to cook. We don’t share your credit card details with third-party sellers, and we don’t sell your information to others. With recipes including Pasta all Genovese, Steak Fiorentine and Tortellini Gino will have his work cut out to keep up with the women running the kitchens which he visits. In this new series he’ll reveal his tastiest family recipes, learn new dishes and meet some incredible Mammas. But then it’s time to get busy, and Gino takes on the role of sous chef as his aunts take control of the kitchen and rustle up his favourite dish, Pasta alla Genovese.

In the UK, one [of my children] is at school, one’s at work, one is away, and it’s difficult to spend uninterrupted quality time together. Recent and current series include multi-award-winning The Undateables for Channel 4; Wheeler Dealers: Dream Car for Discovery and Jimmy Doherty’s Dream Builds on Wheels for Discovery Quest; Joey Essex: Grief and Me for BBC Three; Magnolia’s Emmy-nominated For the Love of Kitchens, and forthcoming Canard co-production Fred’s Last Resort for E4.Biography: Born into a large family in Napoli, Gino's love of cooking developed from a young age when he was taught to cook by his mother and, at the age of 11, started working at his grandfather's restaurant. Helen Cooke, Joint Creative Director of Betty TV added, “It’s a pleasure to be working with Gino as he cooks for his toughest crowd yet – some of Italy’s feistiest female cooks. The dessert section is a bit small and a bit too fancy for me but there are lots of nice recipes in different categories. The six-part series sees Gino travel from Naples to Bologna, learning to cool local dishes from families and their matriarchs.

Known for his authentic recipes and cheeky personality, and with a string of restaurants across the country to his name, Gino has risen through the ranks to become Britain's best-loved Italian chef. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average.

Gino is the author of many best selling cookbooks including Gino’s Italian Escape and Gino’s Italian Express. People have this idea that in every Italian family there are secret recipes that get passed down the generations. Celebrating the amazing women in all these families, Gino D'Acampo delivers 80 delicious Italian recipes inspired by the women in his life in his new book Gino's Italy. You visit Sardinia’s ‘Blue Zone’ – an area renowned for having the largest number of people that live to 100 years old. That’s why I try to have a good work-life balance and work for six months and then take six months off and go on holiday.

It's widely thought that recipes in Italian families are passed from generation to generation and it's absolutely true - much to the envy of the rest of us. Because it’s one of the only places where my family is all together [Gino and his wife, Jessica, share three children together, sons Luciano and Rocco and daughter Mia]. I'm a huge fan of television so I really have found the perfect job, as I've been writing about TV shows, films and interviewing major television, film and sports stars for over 25 years. Gino said, “From learning to make pizza at the fingertips of my Nonna Flora, to stirring simmering pots of ragu in my mamma’s kitchen. That’s the point of having family – so they can share the most embarrassing stories of you around the table!Drawing on the wisdom of his late mother, his fifteen bossy aunties, and a whole nation of home-cooking nonnas, Gino shares the secrets to making the very best version of much-loved Italian classics. In this personal food odyssey, Gino will be travelling the length and breadth of Italy from Naples, Florence and Bologna to encounter local dishes from families and their matriarchs along the way.

Nicola said: “This show will see Gino immersed in the culture that fired his passion for cooking and invite viewers to join him as he celebrates the women who nurture and continue the traditions that make Italian food the centre of family life with all the warmth, humour and wisdom that brings.

I grow fruit and veg in my Villa and they’re the first things I eat whenever I arrive – that and spaghetti with fresh clams. The series producer and director is Naveed Chowdhary-Flatt with executive producers Helen Cooke and David Harrison for Betty TV. He kicks off in Gino’s birthplace, Torre del Greco, where a Gino was taught to cook by his late Nonna Flora and Mamma Alba.
