Episodes



EP 5 – GRAGNANO

This week Gino D’Acampo returns to his native Campania – the Italian region where he grew up and where his family still live. As a chef, he is eager to visit the town of Gragnano, which is world-famous for its pasta. Gino tours this unique place, where a combination of natural elements - sea breezes, hot sunshine and mountain water – has contributed to producing outstanding pasta. Our chef visits one of the town’s historic pasta factories, where local ladies teach him the traditional skill of hand-rolling long fusilli.




EP 6 - MATERA

Gino D’Acampo’s final leg of his Italian Escape starts on the ‘heel’ of Italy’s boot, in Puglia. As a chef, Gino is always on the lookout for amazing food and is rewarded in the town of Altamura – a place that is world-famous for its historic bread. Here Gino visits a bakery, whose ancient oak-fired oven is used to cook not only the bakery’s own loaves but also the bread belonging to Altamura’s ladies. Gino cannot come to the area without shaping the town’s distinctive loaves and help unload the huge oven.



SEASON 2 EP 1 – FLORENCE

Chef Gino D’Acampo begins his second Italian Escape in beautiful Florence. In this episode, he’s on a mission to examine the food that has shaped this Renaissance city. His journey begins as he tackles the famous ‘bistecca alla Fiorentina’ – the finest, thickest, juiciest steak in Tuscany.


SEASON 2 EP 2 – VENICE

Chef Gino D’Acampo continues his Italian Escape in breathtaking Venice. His exciting adventure begins when he is summoned for an appointment with a Venetian Countess. Gino has never met a ‘Contessa’ before and although the two of them share a love of food, he remains slightly nervous about the encounter. Our chef is keen to ask the Contessa about a kind of Venetian tapas called ‘cicchetti’ – so together they take an enchanting gondola ride to discover the best finger-food in the city.
