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.
