Gino D'Acampo visits Piedmont in Gino's Italian Escape
Airing on UK TV and Freesat Monday 21st November is the last episode of Italian chef Gino D'Acampo’s Gino's Italian Escape’. He’ll be visiting our beautiful region of Piedmont, Italy.
ITV says this:
The Northern region of Piedmont borders France and Switzerland and sits at the foot of the Alps. It’s known for sophisticated cuisine and wines such as Barolo. But it's also home to the biggest truffle festival in the town of Alba too. Gino meets one man who's job is to hunt for truffles with his trusty four-legged friend, and sees if he can sniff any out himself.
Piemonte is also one of the three regions that the Po Valley straddles, which is at the heart of the Italian rice production. Gino tries his hand at rice harvesting and cooks in the plains of the Po Valley a meal that celebrates this region.
