Transforming himself from the boy who cleaned the Pizza ovens in Naples, to a TV Celebrity Chef with infectious enthusiasm for his native cuisine, Gino D’Acampo is one of the nation’s most loved culinary personalities. Inheriting his passion for food from his grandfather, Gino trained at the Luigi de Medici Catering College before developing his skills throughout the kitchens of Europe.
Gino moved to England and took on Head Chef assignments at Pane Viso and The Orchard in Belsize Park, as well as joining a major Italian food company as Development Chef and developing meals with Tesco for their ‘finest range’. Gino has now moved into importing and exporting ingredients with his firm Bontà Italia.
Gino’s business empire led to him gaining television appearances, his first being on Great Food Live on UKTV Food. Gino now appears regularly as a celebrity chef on This Morning as well as fronting his shows, including Gino’s Italian Escape on ITV.
Gino was crowned King of the Jungle on the hit ITV show I’m a Celebrity… Get Me out of Here in 2009. The show proved Gino’s popularity amongst the British audience and showed Gino’s natural charm, humour and cheeky attitude. A publisher of multiple books as well as a celebrity chef, Gino’s advice and knowledge is a common feature in the kitchens of households across the nation, with his delicious recipes making many budding cooks proud of their creations every time.
