From the first meatballs I rolled with my aunty Clara to the Spaghetti Vongole that I make for my own family. Gino is the author of many best selling cookbooks including Gino’s Italian Escape and Gino’s Italian Express. 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 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. 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. 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. You can also watch Gino D'Acampo in Gino In Sardinia on ITV’s This Morning from Tuesday September 6 at 10am (see our interview for more on his Sardinia trip). 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. 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].My journey as a chef is all thanks to two generations of women, who without their passion for the food that they fed their families, I would not be where I am. 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. Ah, Spaghetti vongole… We see you cook it on the beach this week, in the first part of the This Morning segment. 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.

Gino’s Italy: Like Mamma Used To Make begins with Gino re-uniting with his aunts Lina and Rita and niece Martina, and Gino’s suitably embarrassed when they pull out family photos albums full of a naked baby Gino! With over 80 recipes for the ultimate Italian classics, ranging from quick weeknight meals to classic blowouts, this is Gino's most iconic book yet. 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.

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. You visit Sardinia’s ‘Blue Zone’ – an area renowned for having the largest number of people that live to 100 years old.

To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. 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.
