Italy’s Greatest Gastronomic Treasure
Gino Campagna was born in Italy. Gino is a native of Parma, in a region that Forbes magazine describes as “Italy’s Greatest Gastronomic Treasure”. Parma is where the famous cheese, Parmigiano-Reggiano, is made, and ditto for everyone’s favorite deluxe ham, Prosciutto di Parma. It is also home to two of Europe’s largest food producers, agri-giant Parmalat and Barilla, the pasta and sauce king.
Italians pride themselves in making sure that their children receive only the best when it comes to food. It’s easy to see why fighting for better cafeteria food in the USA, thanks to Gino’s mom, is in his DNA.
Gino’s Kitchen, a series of interstitials aimed at teaching kids a creative and engaging attitude towards food aired on Disney channel for a year and became a revolutionary show way ahead of its time.
From that moment Chef Gino’s career started to grow on two parallel tracks: Live events/Classes/Education. In a time where celebrity chefs, stay-at-home parents, failed caterers all jumped on the bandwagon of kids and food, Chef Gino is proud of being first and foremost a teacher with a long successful career in early education.
