Bake yourself a sweet bite of Italy, every day!


Giuseppe Dell'Anno

Whipping up an admirable array of cakes, cookies and pastries on the 2021 series of The Great British Bake Off – impressing the judges so much he was crowned the winner.

“I don’t usually get cravings for sweet bakes,” the 46-year-old admits. Instead, he’s all about the savoury treats. “Very few things give me as much pleasure as the smell of baked savoury goods, like a warm loaf of bread, or some warm focaccia. Baked focaccia, that to me is heaven on a plate.”

The Italian baker – who is now based in Cheltenham – has written two cookbooks, dedicating the books to bakes of his homeland. 
Many of the recipes in the books are ones Giuseppe ate growing up, made for him by his father. “My dad was a professional chef and baker by passion. He’s always done it with a passion – for him, it’s never been work.

Join Giuseppe today at the festival and discover food from Italy, his treasured recipes.
