An exquisitely designed volume of innovative restaurant dishes and old family favourites from Giorgio Locatelli, Britain's best-loved Italian chef and restaurateur.

Opening with an extensive guide to preparing antipasti and culminating in a mouth-watering selection of desserts - via soups, risotto, pasta, fish and meat dishes - Giorgio Locatelli's masterpiece is the must-have contemporary Italian food bible, seamlessly combining the historical insight of a food writer with the hands-on expertise of a top chef. Peppered with evocative anecdotes and outspoken observations on the state of modern food, Giorgio Locatelli's definitive and universally celebrated compendium is a delight to read and cook from.

MEDIA REVIEWS

`"Made in Italy" is quite simply the perfect book...Buy this and you'll never want to look at another Italian cookbook again.' Gordon Ramsay, The Times

`This book is nothing short of a masterpiece.' Nigel Slater

`I love Giorgio's book. It's full of his love of food; this is one of my favourite books.' Kate Winslet

`Packed with delicious recipes, many from his restaurant, and the reminiscences from his life, it is the ultimate gift for anyone interested in Italian food.' Telegraph

'"Made in Italy", by the flamboyant Italian chef Giorgio Locatelli, is such a fashionable combination of charming anecdotes and stories about his family that could double as recipes.' Daily Telegraph

`A compendium that should replace everything but Marcella Hazan on your Italian shelf.' Kate Colquhoun, Daily Telegraph

`Large and handsome...most of the recipes are painstaking and lucid, and the context embraces Giorgio, his family and professional life, while guiding us effortlessly through some of the riches of Italian foodstuffs.' Tom Jaine, Guardian

`This book is, like all the best Italians, good-looking and just a bit irreverent. Even so, it would be a shame to leave this one on the coffee table, rather than take it into the kitchen where it belongs.' Time Out

'Giorgio Locatelli's "Made in Italy" is a beautiful, evocative book, looking not just at traditional Italian ingredients and local recipes but also at local traditions and memories...deserves to become a classic.' Waterstone's Books Quarterly
