About this deal

It has 246 pages of recipes, family pictures of Gino and his family/ up-bring and each recipe comes with a big colorful picture. I visit Procida [an island in the Bay of Naples] which I enjoyed as I grew up near the ocean, so I love anything to do with the sea.

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. Gino’s Italy: Like Mamma Used to Make was commissioned for ITV by Nicola Lloyd, Factual Entertainment commissioner and Sue Murphy, Head of Factual Entertainment. You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. 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.Headed by Joint Creative Directors David Harrison and Helen Cooke, Betty TV has a rich heritage of producing popular factual formats which tell incredible stories with diverse characters. Gino is the author of many best selling cookbooks including Gino’s Italian Escape and Gino’s Italian Express. 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. My favourite things are Sardinian Pecorino cheese or Sardinian Panadas, which is pastry stuffed with mince or vegetables. 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.

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. From the first meatballs I rolled with my aunty Clara to the Spaghetti Vongole that I make for my own family. 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].

In this new series he’ll reveal his tastiest family recipes, learn new dishes and meet some incredible Mammas. In a personal food odyssey, Gino will be travelling the length and breadth of Italy to encounter local dishes . The dessert section is a bit small and a bit too fancy for me but there are lots of nice recipes in different categories. Waited for four months to get it, got it this week gave it as a gift to my husband, who loves to cook and has already enjoyed three amazing dinners! 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.
