Gennaro Contaldo


Our latest guest on Grilling is a larger than life Italian, who has been a key player in bringing his native cuisine to British shores over recent decades. Born and raised on the Amalfi coast, Gennaro Contaldo started helping out in restaurants as a young boy, before moving to the UK in the late 60s. Initially, he worked in a fish and chip shop and then various London restaurants - including Antonio Carluccio’s restaurant on Neal Street. It was there he met Jamie Oliver, his protege, famously teaching him everything he knows about Italian cooking. Here we find out about chasing chickens, his loathing of bad British carbonara, foraging for mushrooms, and his profoundly significant relationships with Antonio and Jamie.

S02E03: Chatting with Gennaro Contaldo about Italian food, Jamie Oliver, and the late, great Antonio Carluccio

The FoodTribe Podcast

The legendary Gennaro Contaldo almost doesn't need an introduction. He's one of the UK's most loved chefs, he's widely known as the man who taught Jamie Oliver all he knows about Italian cooking, he spent time entertaining us with the late, great Antonio Carluccio on 'Two Greedy Italians', and he's written a dozen best-selling Italian cookbooks, covering everything from pasta through to slow cooking. He (virtually) stopped by for a chat about all of the above, his love of cheese – and gave his very strong opinions on pineapple on pizza and cream in Carbonara.
