Episode 1: The Italian Job

Summary

Gordon Ramsay, Gino D'Acampo and Fred Sirieix set off on a European adventure, organising a special ceremony in each of their home countries. They begin in Gino's homeland of Italy, where the chef's best friend is renewing his vows in four days' time.

But despite the urgency of preparing a menu, Gino insists they stop for lunch in his home town of Naples and takes them to the oldest pizzeria in town.

Review

This is like muscling in on a lads’ weekend in Italy. Gordon Ramsay, Gino D’Acampo and Fred Sirieix are driving a camper van around southern Italy, supposedly collecting ingredients for a friend’s celebratory meal. They shout, swear, drink too much limoncello, throw their hands up in despair at Gino’s appalling driving, leave bits of the van littered behind them on the road and steal each other’s underwear ... several times.

It’s a haphazard journey and not just because Gino’s got Gordon’s voice as his sat nav, which gives rise to near hysteria in that testosterone-fuelled vehicle. They nip into Naples to eat a slice of pizza, pick lemons near Sorrento, fish for octopus off Sardinia and make mozzarella in Campania. Don’t expect any recipes – just a lot of f-words because even the usually urbane Fred gets exasperated at times.

They’re clearly having a ball. Maybe you just had to be there.
