About the Author

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. 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, and Passion: Simple, Seductive Recipes for Lovers of Italian Food. He has his own YouTube food channel and is an ambassador for Citalia and Bertolli. He lives in London with his wife and two daughters.


"Proper, old-school classics to use up every scrap"----Jamie Oliver
"The Amalfi Coast is known for extra-sweet, thick-skinned lemons, and native Contaldo digs into the area's flavor in a collection as bright and cheerful as its subject ... Whether codifying the 17-day process for crafting limoncello or explaining how friends at a hometown pastry shop candy citrus peel, Contaldo evokes joy."----Publishers Weekly on Gennaro's Limoni
"With each recipe, Contaldo brings joy and dazzlement."----Publishers Weekly on Panetteria
"What a fantastic book - delicious Italian food, fast."----Jamie Oliver on Gennaro's Fast Cook Italian
"'[An] excellent cookbook ... fun to read ...This delightful cookbook will educate and inspire."----Publishers Weekly (starred review) on Gennaro's Pasta Perfecto!
"Italian master-chef Contaldo, who famously taught Jamie Oliver to cook Italian, recounts his childhood in exquisite detail, matching his recollections to the subject on point ... Artfully arranged photographs and some well-worn and much-needed tips round out what will soon be an oft-referred-to classic."----Booklist (starred review) on Passione
