About the Author
Gennaro Contaldo was born in Minori on the Amalfi coast. He came to Britian in the late 60s and worked in several restaurants around the country and London. He then moved to London, where he worked as a chef in a number of restaurants before opening the award-winning Passione. He came to public attention as the chef who inspired Jamie Oliver when they worked together at Antonio Carluccio's restaurant. In spring 2011 he presented Two Greedy Italians on BBC2, and a second series will be aired in spring 2012. Gennaro lives in north-east London with his partner Liz and their nine-year-old twin girls Olivia and Chloe.

I will detail the typical chapter using the Pizze chapter as an example. This begins with a couple of pages of introduction, followed by quick tips, and then the recipe for pizza dough. This is followed by several classic pizza and calzone recipes - beautifully illustrated and concisely-worded. At this point I should say that, in my view, this book is that very rare beast, a cookbook of great value to the beginner as well as the seasoned baker. Oven temperatures are always listed for fan and conventional ovens - so at least you have consistent information to calibrate for the nature of your own oven.Read more ›
My large baking collection features numerous books on breads and baking, including several editions of the seminal “The Italian Baker” by Carol Field, my staple “Artisan Bread in 5,” Crumb: A Baking Book, Honey & Co The Baking Book, and the new Breaking Breads: A New World of Israeli Baking--Flatbreads, Stuffed Breads, Challahs, Cookies, and the Legendary Chocolate Babka, and I’m pleased to report that “Gennaro’s Italian Bakery” now holds a spot of honor as well.
Gennaro Contaldo, Italian chef and restauranteur who mentored Jamie Oliver, grew up surrounded by a family of bakers, from spending hours in his uncle’s bakery to waking up to his mother’s home baking. As a baker at The Neal Street Restaurant, he was responsible for making the bread, focaccia, torte salate, pastry and seasonal bakes. As he mentioned in the foreword, bread and baked goods mean tradition, and you’ll find various bakes from across Italy and in honor of various seasons and holidays.Read more ›
