Part of Big Mamma’s success in Paris, London and Lille lies in the very personal way they source their ingredients. For those that have experienced the energy in London's Gloria or Circolo Popolare - the book will be an extension of the fun and passion that you're familiar with and give you an opportunity to recreate some of their unique Mediterranean magic 'a casa'!

The reality is that latecomers and cancelled reservations represent an enormous cost for restaurants. Take La Gran Carbonara, a hugely calorific serving of pasta, which is presented in its own hollowed-out wheel of cheese; or Put a Ring on It, the restaurant’s massive Neopolitan wedding cake.And in contrast with recent successful restaurant cookbooks ( The Quality Chop House; St John), the recipes don’t translate well to a domestic kitchen. Welcome to Circolo – our sunny Sicilian trattoria in the heart of London’s lively Fitzrovia district. seven restaurants in Paris (BigLove, Pink Mamma and more), one in Lille, two in London (Gloria and Circolo Popolare), and with more to come.

Included throughout is crucial advice from the restaurant group’s chefs that teach readers how to choose a good truffle (“size is all important. The opening of Libertino, a totally crazy trattoria on rue de Paradis in Paris, on two floors, with an entrance that goes straight into the kitchen.For example, at the top of each recipe the length of time involved is listed, broken down into preparation time, cooking time, and sometimes something like resting time, or chilling time.

The idea behind these wonderful places, explain the founders in our new book, was to both make authentic Italian food, but also to recreate a place full of warmth and generosity that can be found in the small, out-of-the-way trattorias. Each of the 13 locations (nine of which are in Paris) has established itself as a success, assembling lines of people waiting to get in that wrap around the block for each meal service. What motivates us every single day is the very idea of offering each person who walks through the doors of one of our restaurants the best time of their day. The recipe on page 108 supplied by Giuseppe Cutraro asked for 250g of flour to 250ml of water this is impossible as it’s 100% hydration .The surprisingly ‘serious’ cookbook from the bat shit crazy French-owned Big Momma Group of Italian restaurants that operates a total of 10 venues in France and the UK with Gloria and Circolo Popolare in Shoreditch and Fitzrovia respectively. A fresh take on one of the world’s most adored cuisines – much-loved classics with creative twists for today's cooks. Contributing to the volume’s lighthearted feel are dishes named after pop culture figures, such as Egg Sheeran (poached eggs with cress cream), Snoop Dogg Pasta (tagliolini with rapini and anchovies), and Daft Punch (fruit punch with prosecco); a variety of witty sidebars (“This dish is perfect for impressing a date.

We would recommend a good "Pasta bomba rossa" (see recipe on page 194), it wins every time - it's made with tomato sauce (ideally datterino), and fresh basil. A few bits and pieces like cuttlefish, whole octopus and guanciale may take a bit of effort, but you should have no problems for 90 per cent of the dishes with the remainder requiring a decent fishmonger or deli.The book includes much-loved dishes from London’s legendary Gloria and Circolo Popolare, as well as from their other restaurants. It offers, among other things, our Carbonara served in a pecorino wheel, Neapolitan pizzas with Italian ingredients like San Marzano tomatoes and fresh mozzarella – and to top it off, our scandalous desserts featuring our caramelised, chocolate covered profiterole and famous zingy lemon pie, size XXL. Biography: Founded in 2015 by Victor Lugger and Tigrane Seydoux, the Big Mamma family includes (so far! No giant pepper mills in sight in their restaurants, just classic recipes tweaked and, as the kids say,’kicked up a notch’ or’taken to the next level’.
