This Morning chef Gino D’Acampo has more to be mad about than salad cream in ragù

TV chef Gino D’Acampo is short two London restaurants, as his My Restaurant brand shuts down in both Camden and Euston Station; the latter will be replaced by a Starbucks. Parent company Individual Restaurants Company says the decision reflects a focus on “regional opportunities.” The chef, now best known for his slot on This Morning with presenters Holly Willoughby and Philip Schofield, recently went viral after a 2018 clip of him, an Italian, getting mad at food resurfaced. Former pop star Rochelle Humes told D’Acampo how she frequently eats spaghetti “bolognese” with salad cream, sending him into a spiral of Italian expletives, castigation, and gesti. This decision may have a similar effect, although his three pasta bars, all called My Pasta Bar, endure in the City. [Propel]
