About the Author

Antonio Carluccio is one of Italy's great food ambassadors. He has written fourteen bestselling books for Quadrille, including Complete Italian Food, Complete Mushroom Book, Italia and Simple Cooking and has also made numerous television programmes. He ran the Neal Street Restaurant in London's Covent Garden and spent 10 years developing the hugely successful Carluccio's Caffes. In 1998 Antonio was appointed Commendatore, the equivalent of a British knighthood, for his knowledge, enthusiasm and lifetime's service to the Italian food industry, and in 2007 he received an O.B.E. Gennaro Contaldo is a highly respected chef in London as well as a renowned personality in his own right. He is widely known as the Italian legend who taught Jamie Oliver all he knows about Italian cooking. Born in Minori on the Amalfi Coast, Gennaro's quintessentially Italian spirit and positive nature has made him a TV favourite, regularly appearing on BBC's Saturday Kitchen. He has written five cookbooks - of which Passione was awarded Best Italian Cookbook at the World Gourmand Awards in 2004 - and has worked in some of London's most popular restaurants.

I bought this book after visiting Milan and eating the most fabulous food and thinking the Italian food that I cook is just NOT Italian.
I now own both greedy Italian books and have cooked really lovely food, the recipes are simple and yet reliable and as with all things Italian there is something splendid in their simplicity. I have never enjoyed cooking more. When you buy these books you will ever buy another jar/ pot of pasta sauce again.
Buon appetito

Worth it for the Bolognese recipe alone. Their characters really come across in the book and there's some wonderful recipes. Simple, elegant classic Italian food.

In my opinion Gennaro Contaldo provided one of the funniest moments in TV cooking show history when he ate Jamie Oliver's deliberately over-peppery mince pie during his Jamie at Home Christmas special a couple of years ago and his always loud, enthusiastic, opinionated and ever-so-Italian nature always guarantees his every TV appearance is entertaining. Coupled with the godfather of Italian cooking in Britain, Antonio Carluccio - who would be my pick for the ideal crazy Italian grandfather every time - and to say I was excited about news of their collaboration for a new book and TV show was an understatement (pretty sure I actually squealed when Antonio replied to my tweet asking if it was true).

I got my hands on a copy of the book before the TV series started and with Italian high up on my favourite foods list, I was already salivating after the first few pages. This not just a book of pasta and pizza recipes - in fact there is only one pizza recipe and it's for `the true Neapolitan pizza'; it is a cookbook full of genuine Italian recipes, of every regional origin, with a variety of classics as well as more modern influences. The book is organised by course, with introductions about the regional and historic origins of each, and every recipe is labelled as either Contaldo's or Carluccio's. There are also informative notes on some of the recipes - for instance did you know that tomatoes didn't come to Italy until the 1500s? I had no idea!

This is by far one of my favorite recipe books. Beautiful illustrations that will make your mouth water, delectable recipes for even novice cooks, and wonderfully written from the perspective of 2 of the most authentic and respected Italian chefs- Gennaro Contaldo and Antonio Carluccio. It would be the perfect gift for anyone with a passion for Italian food!
