Co-owner of London’s Caldesi Restaurant and Caffé Caldesi, Katie Caldesi is also the principal of the cookery school, La Cucina Caldesi, where she teaches alongside some of the biggest names in Italian cuisine, including Gennaro Contaldo, Ursula Ferrigno and Valentina Harris. Katie published the Italian Cookery Course in 2009 which was shortlisted for the Andre Simon Awards and the Guild of Food Writers Cookery Book of the Year award.

Born in Montepulciano, Tuscany, Giancarlo Caldesi’s interest in food and cooking was inspired by his mother and grandmother, who he helped in the kitchen from an early age. He went on to study hotel management and catering at schools in Perugia and Liguria before coming to England, where he worked, and ran his own restaurants.

Giancarlo and Katie went on to launch Caldesi Restaurant, a neighbourhood and destination restaurant serving simple Italian food in Marylebone Lane.

Their books exploring Sicily, Rome, Venice, and the AmalfiCoast saw them immerse themselves in the diverse food scenes and varied landscapes. These books, and their very latest title, Tuscany, are all available in your online library.
