My Family and Other Italians: The Salvo’s Story

Sharing thumbnail for My Family and Other Italians: The Salvo’s Story

My Family and Other Italians: The Salvo’s Story is a fitting celebration of an iconic Leeds restauran

Salvo’s was founded in 1976 and continues to delight customers from far and wide today, with a winning combination of good cheer, great service and delicious, authentic Italian cuisine.


The book brings together some of the Dammones’ best-loved recipes. Compiled by the charismatic Gip, they’re designed to encourage readers to develop their own ‘feel’ for cooking Italian – many even dispense with weights and measurements! These recipes are brought to life through stunning pictures from experienced photographer Tim Green. From shots documenting the hustle and bustle of the restaurant, to food pictures that look good enough to eat, Tim’s expertise makes the book a real feast for the eyes.


But besides the culinary tips and tricks, ‘My Family and Other Italians’ is filled with the hilarious anecdotes that make the Salvo’s story so unique. John and Gip recall the restaurant’s early days, when Italian cuisine was considered to be so exotic that Salvo took to hanging his coat over the kitchen keyhole to stop chefs peeking in and stealing his pizza dough secrets!


It’s these stories and treasured recipes that make ‘My Family and Other Italians’ such a treat. By sharing them, the Dammones have created a cookbook that all families can enjoy.
