Gennaro Contaldo on his new book Pasta Perfecto
While cooking in his magnificent outdoor kitchen, I chat with Gennaro about his brand new book Pasta Perfecto and why his home is in England but his heart will always belong to Italy.
As we chat, he cooks me (and his wonderful wife Liz) two recipes from his new book; a simple (yet delicious) lemon linguine and another easy idea with garlic, parsley, anchovies and capers.

We discuss why the old fashioned recipes are the best and why we should always cook pasta ‘al dente’.
