Giorgio Locatelli

Chef & Author

Michelin-starred Giorgio Locatelli is one of Britain’s best known Italian chefs. Giorgio began his career at his family’s restaurant in Italy before coming to London. He was head chef at Zafferano, before moving to open Locanda Locatelli in 2002, where he remains chef-patron. The next year Giorgio won his Michelin star on home ground, an honour he has retained every year since. In October 2016, Giorgio was awarded the Commendatore OMRI by Italian Ambassador Terracciano for services to Italian gastronomy, the equivalent of a British knighthood. Giorgio has had a column in the Guardian and written a number of bestselling books, most recently Made In Sicily published in 2011. Giorgio has co-presented four series for BBC2 on Sicily and Italy with Andrew Graham-Dixon

‘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

‘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
