Giorgio Locatelli was born into a family that ran a Michelin-starred restaurant in Corgeno, Italy. He worked in Italy and Switzerland and moved to London 21 years ago to work for Anton Edelmann at The Savoy hotel. Four years later, he went to Paris to work at Restaurant Laurent and La Tour d’Argent, returning to head up the kitchen at Olivo, where he served up rustic Italian food for three years. Spotted by restaurateur Claudio Pulze, he then opened Zafferano and scooped a Michelin star in 1999. In 2002, he opened Locanda Locatelli and secured a Michelin star the following year. In addition to TV appearances on Pure Italian (UKTV Food) and Tony and Giorgio (BBC), he has written two books, his most recent, Made in Italy.
