Gennaro Contaldo

Italy is a diverse and captivating country, home to some of world's most impressive historic sites, stunning scenery and delicious cuisine. So who better to show you around than our favourite Italian chef and Citalia brand ambassador, Gennaro Contaldo.

Born on the Amalfi Coast, Italy was Gennaro's home for 20 years before he moved to England in 1969, and despite living in the UK for many years, Gennaro has lost none of his passion for his homeland.

A familiar face on British television, Gennaro has appeared on programmes such as Saturday Kitchen, Two Greedy Italians and many of his protégé, Jamie Oliver's cookery shows. Since November 2014, we've been working with him to bring you his recommendations, first-hand knowledge and love for all things Italy.

Read articles written by Gennaro, sharing his knowledge to help make your next holiday to Italy as authentic and memorable as possible, and watch him at home in his kitchen, cooking some of Italy's most delicious regional dishes in a series of video recipes just for us.

We hope you enjoy exploring the best that Italy has to offer with Gennaro and the team here at Citalia.
