Gino's Italian Escape: Hidden Italy
Gino D'Acampo continues his exploration of Italy as the locals know it, meeting the people who keep age-old traditions alive and admiring the beautiful scenery. Trentino-Alto Adige is a unique region bordering both Switzerland and Austria. 1,000 metres above sea level, and home to the Dolomite mountains, it resembles an Alpine paradise tucked away in Italy. Gino visits Valfloriana, where dairy and meat farmers still follow ancient methods of producing food. Here he meets dairy farmer Graziano, who shows him how to make the local soft cheese zighera della valfloria, and then uses it as his star ingredient when he whips up a quick and easy pasta dish. Gino then moves further into the mountains to learn about the local cured meat - speck.
