Made at Home by Giorgio Locatelli

Lovereading view...

Giorgio Locatelli has another family beside his much-loved wife and children, his work family at his restaurant Locanda Locatelli and there are many recipes here cherished as traditions for their afternoon meals together alongside favourites enjoyed at home in Puglia and London. If you love Italian food, you will take to Made at Home, the reminiscences enhancing the recipes making for both enjoyment and anticipation at all those new dishes to be created. It’s good food too – it won’t involve every pan, pot and utensil you possess and you won’t be left wondering what some of the ingredients are either. The subtitle says it all – The food I cook for the people I love. ~ Sue Baker
