Pictured : Gordon Ramsay Fred Sirieix and Gino D'Acampo take to the sea off Crete on  jet ski's. 

Having previously traversed America’s west coast to explore flavours of the new world, this time out Gordon, Gino and Fred travel to Greece to immerse themselves in the culinary traditions and spectacular landscapes of the old world, in the birthplace of civilisation. The taste buddies embark on an island-hopping tour, keen to learn more about the Mediterranean diet and how the country has one of the healthiest populations in the world. Gino’s right at home, declaring himself El Capitano and taking charge of their catamaran - stand by for a bumpy ride. Highlights include the boys hunting and cooking a unique species of lobster in Crete, touring the islands by tuk-tuk and jet ski, taking a mud bath in a volcanic spring in stunning Santorini, as well as chowing down on mouth-watering moussaka, and finally, tickling their taste buds with a hugely popular local speciality: the Mykonos sausage.
