Full of colourful and modern recipes that evoke Italian life at its most enticing, PASSIONE is the first cookbook from Gennaro Contaldo - the man who Jamie Oliver calls his 'London Dad'. Gennaro's passion for fresh, seasonal ingredients and his love of simple food is shared here with the energy for which he is famous. Full of evocative stories from his childhood - free-diving for oysters, foraging for wild mushrooms and bunking off school to go fishing - it becomes clear that his expertise has grown out of a lifetime's passion. Beautifully illustrated with photographs from his childhood, as well as stunningly modern food photography, PASSIONE reveals the secrets of Gennaro's own basic recipes as well as some of the best-loved dishes from his restaurant - Fillet of Seabream with Honey and Vinegar, Lamb Cutlets with Mixed Herbs and Prosciutto, and Limoncello and Strawberry Ice Cream - and lets Gennaro share his inspirational interpretation of how to cook and eat Italian food.

About Gennaro Contaldo

Gennaro Contaldo began to work in the kitchens of local restaurants in Amalfi at the age of eight. In 1969, he moved to Britain where he travelled from the Midlands to Loch Lomond, training in village restaurants and studying the wild food of the area. He then worked as a chef in several London restaurants before opening his own, Passione, in London's Fitzrovia. Gennaro is currently involved with Jamie Oliver in setting up 'Jamie's Italian', a collection of nationwide restaurants. He lives in London with his partner Liz and their gorgeous twins Chloe and Olivia.
