Born in Torre del Greco, Naples, in Southern Italy, Gino D’Acampo inherited his grandfather Giovanni’s love and passion for cooking. After studying and learning his culinary skills at the Luigi De Medici catering college, at the age of 18 Gino moved to London, England.

Gino started his television career at the age of 24, giving him over 21 years of experience presenting and participating in many prime-time TV shows. Gino also has two prime-time television shows in his home country for Discovery Italia. With cheeky wit and exceptional talent in the kitchen, Gino regularly appears on ITV’s This Morning, as well as having his own show Gino’s Italian Escape, where for the past 7 years, he’s been traveling around Italy in search of authentic Italian recipes.
