  • Cover Reveal: Made at Home by Giorgio Locatelli


    From Tuscan tomato and bread soup to monkfish stew, simple spaghettis or lemon and pistachio polenta cake, Made at Home is a colourful collection of the food that Giorgio Locatelli loves to prepare for family and friends.

    With recipes that reflect the places he calls home, from Northern Italy to North London or the holiday house he and his wife Plaxy have found in Puglia, Made at Home is a celebration of favourite vegetables combined in vibrant salads or fresh seasonal stews, along with generous fish and meat dishes and cakes to share. Early every evening, Giorgio’s ‘other family’, the chefs and front of house staff at his restaurant, Locanda Locatelli, sit down together to eat, and Giorgio reveals the recipes for their best-loved meals, the Tuesday ‘Italian’ Burger and the Saturday Pizza.

    Giorgio Locatelli is also a judge on BBC Two’s brand new competitive food show The Big Family Cooking Showdown, alongside chef  Rosemary Shrager. They will judge and crown the nation’s best family of cooks. The show will be presented by Great British Bake Off winner Nadiya Hussain and TV presenter Zoe Ball.

    Made At Home is out on the 7th September and you can pre-order it now.

      April 25

      Nigel SlaterI need something to quell my avocado-toast habit. That moment when I take an avocado, skin, stone and smash it, stir in a little olive oil, coriander and salt, then slather it on toasted sourdough. Nothing wrong with that, other than the regularity with which it replaces lunch or even dinner.

      I need something less soft and green, something with a heart, soul and balls. So today, I toast a thin slice of sourdough over which I pour olive oil, then add ‘nduja, the spreadable, spiced Italian sausage available from supermarkets and Italian grocery shops. Put it back under the grill, I then calm its chilli heat down with a thick slice of soft, chalky white goat’s curd.

A paper manufacturer succeeded in producing a completely biodegradable paper from this organic by-product.
