Celebrity chef Gino D'Acampo proved a big hit - especially with women of all ages - as he returned to Maidenhead.
The jovial Italian signed copies of his latest book called La Dolce Diet at The Italian Shop in Denmark Street on Saturday.
Fans were queuing out the door to meet him, have their book signed, get a kiss and a photo.
He said: "It is fantastic to come back here, if I had my way I would be here every month."
The Sardo family have owned the business since the 1960s. They worked with Gino when he first arrived in the UK.
Managing director Rosario Sardo said: "Gino does so much work supporting us as a family and it is always good to have him here."
Fan Claudia Balague said she had all Gino's books and 'he was just wonderful' to meet.
Trainee chef Samuel Lambourne, 17, said he likes all of Gino's recipes.
