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.
