In the penultimate episode of Gino’s Italian Coastal Escape, airing on Wednesday 13 December on ITV, Gino reveals the rugged and wild region that is Calabria. Its landscape is as breathtaking as the powerhouse ingredients it produces and this week it’s about fire and spice, with eye watering chillies, a new wonder salami, and then an Italian ingredient that is as English as they come. Join Gino as he explores this vast region by train, taking in the coast and the mountains, and creates two dishes in honour of this wild region.
In this eight-part series Gino is exploring the Mediterranean coast, from the glittering elegance of its cliff-top towns, to its mountainous rustic villages. He’ll be immersing himself in the rugged, wild islands, traveling along dramatic coastal roads, and across the sea, to reveal the best-kept secrets of this coast.
Gino’s Italian Coastal Escape Episode 7 (of 8) airs Wednesday 13 December 2017 from 8.00pm-8.30pm on ITV.
