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. Making pizza with Nonna Flora, rolling meatballs with my aunty Clara, and stirring simmering pots of ragu in Mamma’s kitchen was wonderful. It has 246 pages of recipes, family pictures of Gino and his family/ up-bring and each recipe comes with a big colorful picture. The dessert section is a bit small and a bit too fancy for me but there are lots of nice recipes in different categories.

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.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. Cooking for Phillip [Schofield] and Holly [Willoughby] is one of my favourite things to do and I consider them friends. After training at the Luigi de Medici Catering college, Gino came to work in London and was soon discovered as a TV talent. 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. 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.

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. 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. Gino’s Italy: Like Mamma Used To Make is a six-part series that starts on ITV on Sunday September 4 at 7. 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. 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.Gino helps his Aunt Lina to prepare his favourite pasta dish and it quickly becomes clear who is the true boss of the kitchen! To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average.

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]. 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. The six-part series sees Gino travel from Naples to Bologna, learning to cool local dishes from families and their matriarchs.

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. Helen Cooke, Joint Creative Director of Betty TV added, “It’s a pleasure to be working with Gino as he cooks for his toughest crowd yet – some of Italy’s feistiest female cooks.

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 the point of having family – so they can share the most embarrassing stories of you around the table! Gino is the author of many best selling cookbooks including Gino’s Italian Escape and Gino’s Italian Express.
