Giorgio Locatelli started helping out in the family restaurant at age five. He was raised in Corgeno in northern Italy, close to the Swiss border and Milan. Almost everything his family ate and drank was produced locally. He was told by the head chef at his first real Italian restaurant job that he would never make it as a chef. His grandmother, who shared her great love of food with him, said Giorgio would have to go back and show him. And so he did. After getting suspended from cooking school because of kissing a girl on the school's steps, he went on to become a greatly admired chef. Made in Italy is a 624-page, vibrantly illustrated book full of Locatelli's recipes, insight and historical detail about Italian food. He combines food narrative with hands-on expertise of a top chef. He peppers the book with evocative stories and funny and often outspoken observations on the state of food today. This is the contemporary Italian food bible, from the acknowledged master of modern Italian cooking.

Italians love to talk about food. The aroma of a simmering ragu, the bouquet of a local wine, the memory of a past meal: Italians discuss these details as naturally as we talk about politics or sport, and at least as animatedly. In Why Italians Love to Talk about Food, Elena Kostioukovich explores the phenomenon that first struck her as a newcomer to Italy: the 'culinary code' or way of talking about food. In doing so, she captures the fierce local pride that gives Italian cuisine its remarkable diversity. To come to know Italian food is to discover the differences of taste, language and attitude that separate a Sicilian from a Puglian or a Venetian from a Sardinian. Sample Emilio Romagna's pumpkin-filled Tortelli, Tuscany's Bistecca alla Fiorentina and Lombardy's mouth-watering Torta Paradiso: each is part of a unique culinary tradition. This learned, charming and entertaining narrative is a journey through one of the world's richest and most adored food cultures. Arranged by region with vivid historical anecdotes, maps, menus and glossaries, Why Italians Love to Talk About Food is a sumptuous exploration of Italian cuisine and culture, and Italy's delicious contributions to the world.
