Cooking outside the Colosseum in Rome, a visit to the Amalfi coast and Alberobello in Puglia all wonderful experiences.
Gino is remembering just what Italy has in terms of food and cooking and says it is time for us in the UK to get real. Time to see what real Italian cooking is, not our version of what we think or are told it is. We know what Gino means, when he asks us to get really into authentic Italian cooking – when we visit Italy we experience it for ourselves.

Gino was born in Torre del Greco, Naples, in southern Italy, and has inherited his grandfather’s love of cooking. He studied at the Luigi de Medici Catering College.
We all know Gino from TV, most particularly the spicy show with Melanie Sykes in Let’s Do Lunch with Gino and Mel, and as a resident chef on ITV’s This Morning.
