Bruno My Story

By Bruno Tonioli

  • Hardback
  • £20.00

The eagerly anticipated and highly entertaining memoirs of Strictly Come Dancing's most popular judge.

Bruno Tonioli is the unmistakably flamboyant Italian who has entertained Strictly Come Dancing's countless fans for very nearly a decade. Bruno lights up every episode of the smash UK show - as well as Dancing in the Stars in the USA - with his high-energy, warm and deliciously humourous critiques of the celebrity contestants. For the very first time, fans can now read all about this highly engaging and life-affirming man who has rapidly established himself as a British national treasure.

Born to staunchly working class parents and raised in a very conservative Catholic village in northern Italy, Tonioli knew from the age of 8 that he was not constructed like many of the other boys he played with. Forced to train for a "proper job" as a bank clerk, Bruno was eventually to find a way to express his creative abilities and ended up a dancer and then a renowned choreographer, arriving in Britain in the early 1980s. His career took off and he found himself immersed in the buzz and hedonism of the vibrant 80s scene, rubbing shoulders with the great and the good from the worlds of theatre, music and film. Wonderfully rich and colourful stories from this era abound.

For Bruno, the last decade has - of course - been very largely about the Strictly phenomenon, and his memoirs do not disappoint in taking fans behind the scenes to witness for themselves the magical ingredients of one of the most popular shows on TV. The book will delight with its warmth, depth and wonderful sense of joie de vivre.

Biographical Notes

Bruno Tonioli was born in Ferrara in northern Italy in 1955. He begun his professional career as a dancer and came to London as a leading member of the Paris-based company La Grande Eugene before joining the Lyndsay Kemp Company. He has worked extensively in film, theatre and TV - and also in the music business, choreographing videos, stage shows and tours for many artists including Tina Turner, Sting, Elton John, the Rolling Stones, Freddy Mercury, Boy George and Duran Duran. His TV credits include Not the Nine O'Clock News, Absolutely Fabulous, French & Saunders, The Brit Awards, Top of the Pops and The Royal Variety Show. Since 2004, Bruno has been a judge on BBC1's smash show Strictly Come Dancing; since 2005 he has also been a judge on ABC's equally successful show Dancing With the Stars in the USA. He lives in London and Los Angeles.

My Kind of Food

John Torode
Authors:
John Torode

My Kind of Food is a very personal book from John Torode, full of the food that he loves to cook and eat, recipes that he makes away from the cameras and professional kitchens. In John's words:'My world as I know it started with my Nanna's roasting tin, a chicken and a wooden spoon. The food she cooked was always simple, but delicious. Her cauliflower cheese was awesome, her caramel slice wonderful and I am still searching for a recipe to make her apple tea cake. So life started simply for me. Since then I have cooked in professional kitchens, run my own restaurants and done a lot of telly. Some of you may have eaten in my restaurants, some may have seen me on MasterChef, but I guess that not many of you know what I really cook for myself and my friends and family. This book is about how I cook at home and the chapters reflect me and the things in life I love - how I eat and how I cook. At its heart, it is simple, but it's definitely also influenced by my years in restaurant kitchens. I don't tend to define my food by type or style. I guess you could say that these are my real favourites - a behind-the-scenes look at my own kitchen!' BRUNCH TO LUNCH The Aussie in me is all about eating through the morning. My perfect day starts slowly - if breakfast is the meal of kings, then brunch is the food of emperors. FOR THE FAMILY Although I am a professional cook, I have a number of dishes that I rely on at home. They are all tried-and-tested, some are posh, some are simple, but all are favourites. IN A RUSH I cook every day, but sometimes it needs to be quick and easy. But there's no reason why a quick meal should not be tasty. STORES AND LEFTOVERS Great food is created from necessity. Open your cupboards and look for the potential in your fridge. For many a minefield, but for me a gold mine. These are the recipes I know well from being a boy and watching in wonder what could be made with a bit of this and a bit of that. Not complicated just delicious.ALL OUTSIDE Well, I am an Aussie. Some of the best food in the world is cooked outside, where having fun is as important as cooking. AND TO FINISH I love a good dessert. A proper steaming pudding with thick custard or real ice cream. It's all about being a kid and not caring about sugar and spice. Cakes and tarts and pies and lots of them.
