The special climate and fertile soil make this one of the world leaders in producing food served at the top restaurants catering for royals and celebrities.
Famous for its outstanding cured meats, here Gino discovers an ancient cellar packed with the king of cured meats – culatello. These prized, refined hams hang like bats from the cellar roof, and there's one there reserved especially for Prince Charles!
The area is also home to Parmesan cheese, and after buying a wedge, Gino knocks up a dish of fried aubergine, juicy tomato and soft mozzarella, topped with basil and olive oil. Bellisimo!
