Cook with Gino D’Acampo at San Carlo

Are you a talented home chef with an amazing family recipe? ITV want you for their new cookery show.

Cook with Gino D’Acampo at San Carlo

There are just two days left to apply to work with Gino D’Acampo on his new TV show and put your dish on the menu at San Carlo.

Have you got a delicious family recipe and the talent to cook it to perfection? If so, you could be a part of Gino D’Acampo’s nationwide search for the best home chefs and recipes.

‘There’s No Taste Like Home’, a celebration of home cooked dishes with family heritage, will air on ITV1 this summer and Gino is calling out to North West cooks to get involved.

“Forget your fancy restaurant fare, I want to taste good, honest, home cooked food - just like Mamma used to make,” he said. “I’m looking for recipes that have never been seen in cook books. I’ll be uncovering beloved family favourites passed down the generations on scraps of paper and by word of mouth. I want to find out how the dishes have evolved over the years and hopefully uncover some amazing tales.”

Gino was inspired by his grandfather’s gnocchi al pomodoro and is convinced there are hundreds more fantastic stories and family dishes just like his out there.

The celebrity chef has travelled all over the UK for the series. In each show he’ll meet three home cooks, each boasting a treasured recipe that has been passed down through their family for generations.

Gino and the viewers will learn the secrets of these recipes and discover the fascinating family stories of how they have evolved over the generations.

In each show, Gino and the three home cooks will take over a local restaurant's lunch service. They’ll prepare, cook and serve their dishes exactly the way they've been made for years to prove to the paying customers that ‘There's No Taste Like Home.’

At the end of the show, based on taste, presentation and popularity, Gino will judge which of the three dishes will win a regular place on the restaurant's menu for a month and give you the opportunity to try them for yourselves.

There are two shows left to film – one on Tuesday 8 June in an undetermined restaurant followed by an Italian special at San Carlo on Wed 9 June. ITV is hunting for great home cooks, paying diners and willing restaurants to take part in the series right now.

To apply or for further details please call 090 11 11 33 77 or email ITV now at notastelikehome@itv.com
