Gennaro Contaldo

ISBN 9781566560276 • hardback • $30.00

A NEW BOOK FROM THE ITALIAN LEGEND WHO TAUGHT JAMIE OLIVER ALL HE KNOWS ABOUT ITALIAN COOKING

Born just feet away from the sea on Italy’s stunning Amalfi coast, chef, food writer, TV personality, and restaurateur Gennaro Contaldo learned from his parents how to seek out wild food—free-diving for oysters, foraging for wild mushrooms, and missing school to go fishing. This adventurous spirit lived on throughout Gennaro’s career in food and was what went on to inspire Jamie Oliver to call Gennaro his “London dad.” It was summed up here in this first, glorious collection of his favorite Italian recipes.

This cookbook features photographs from Gennaro’s childhood, alongside stunning food and travel photography. Over 100 recipes, and delightful personal recollections, share the secrets of Gennaro’s love affair with Italian food and will inspire cooks of all abilities to taste the true flavors of the Italian coastline. Buon appetito!

Gennaro Contaldo is widely known as the Italian legend who taught Jamie Oliver all he knows about Italian cooking, as well as a renowned personality in his own right. Born in Minori on the Amalfi Coast, Gennaro’s quintessentially Italian spirit and positive nature has made him a TV favorite. He regularly appears on Saturday Kitchen and more recently his own TV series, “Two Greedy Italians” on PBS. In 1999 he opened his own restaurant, Passione, in Charlotte Street, London, which was awarded Best Italian restaurant in 2005. Gennaro is currently involved in the Jamie Oliver restaurant chain, Jamie’s Italian, where he creates dishes and trains chefs nationwide and abroad. He is the author of many cookbooks, including the highly-acclaimed Panetteria: Genarro’s Italian Bakery. He also has his own YouTube food channel and is an ambassador for Citalia and Bertolli. He lives in London with his wife and two daughters.
