Massimo Bottura Book Signing And Cooking Demonstration

On Saturday 8th November from 2:00pm, distinguished Italian chef, Massimo Bottura, will be visiting Harrods in the Cookshop on the Second Floor to sign copies of his new book, Never Trust a Skinny Italian Chef, and to demonstrate one of the book’s delicious recipes.

Described as the “Jimi Hendrix of Italian chefs”, Massimo Bottura is the chef patron at Osteria Francescana, a three-Michelin star restaurant in Modena, Italy. Never Trust a Skinny Italian Chef is Massimo's first book and is filled with mouth-watering recipes, inspirations and techniques.

“I am an Italian chef. If you know anything about Italy, you’ll know that Italy is a country where three things can’t be tampered with – football, the Pope and your grandmother’s recipes. Well, unfortunately, I like tampering. That’s what we do at my restaurant, Osteria Francescana, we tamper with the Italian kitchen,” says Massimo Bottura.
