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. 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]. About a year ago, I bought a Harley-Davidson Fat Boy special edition and I love it – especially when I take Rocco for a ride in the morning by the sea and get fresh croissants and an espresso. Is it true you’ve also invited a film crew for ITV’s This Morning into ‘Villa D’Acampo’ in Sardinia, where you live for half the year?

The six-part series sees Gino travel from Naples to Bologna, learning to cool local dishes from families and their matriarchs. Cooking for Phillip [Schofield] and Holly [Willoughby] is one of my favourite things to do and I consider them friends. 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.After training at the Luigi de Medici Catering college, Gino came to work in London and was soon discovered as a TV talent.

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.I'm currently TV Content Director on What's On TV, TV Times, TV and Satellite Week magazines plus Whattowatch. The 6×30 series from Betty TV celebrates the women who have fed Italy and shaped the country’s cuisine through the ages. It will always be the most special dish in the world to me because it’s the last dish that my mother cooked for me before she passed away. 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. Starting in his place of birth, Torre Del Greco in Napoli, where he learnt to cook in the kitchens of his Nonna Flora and Mamma Alba, Gino is going back to his roots to celebrate all the women whose kitchens have fuelled Italy through their incredible food.

The series will be accompanied by a standalone cookbook, Gino’s Italy: Like Mamma Used to Make, published by Bloomsbury.

The dessert section is a bit small and a bit too fancy for me but there are lots of nice recipes in different categories. My journey as a chef is all thanks to two generations of women and this series is about honouring them as well as exploring Italy and local dishes from other families and their matriarchs along the way.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.

Gino is the author of many best selling cookbooks including Gino’s Italian Escape and Gino’s Italian Express. In a personal food odyssey, Gino will be travelling the length and breadth of Italy to encounter local dishes from families and their matriarchs along the way. It has 246 pages of recipes, family pictures of Gino and his family/ up-bring and each recipe comes with a big colorful picture. 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.

The series producer and director is Naveed Chowdhary-Flatt with executive producers Helen Cooke and David Harrison for Betty TV. People have this idea that in every Italian family there are secret recipes that get passed down the generations. We don’t share your credit card details with third-party sellers, and we don’t sell your information to others. 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.
