Is this a cookbook? It is but the recipes are at the back of the book. Instead you get the story behind each dish created by this exceptional chef. The stories are incredibly interesting and reveal the thought process that goes behind to create memorable dishes. Unless you are a professional cook you might not replicate all recipes but you will certainly be inspired.

My cheffy choice, from one of the most original and highly-rated chefs in the world. Massimo's infectious passion comes across on the pages, even if you're unlikely to cook much from this
