The Fearless Kitchen 47: Antonio Carluccio – Food & Wine Festival, Melbourne
Antonio Carluccio, OBE, OMRI, the Godfather of Italian cuisine, chef, restaurateur and food expert, flew from the UK to Melbourne for the Food and Wine Festival, where I had the pleasure to meet this most loved and respected cookery writer and champion of Italian gastronomy.
Antonio was just shy of his 80th birthday relaxed and clearly chuffed to be in Melbourne and the centre of attention at the World’s Longest Lunch where 1722 people are seated to enjoy a meal he orchestrated. The entire festival was an amazing feat of organisation and passion, but this lunch was truly unique and super special. To have the opportunity to share this with my listeners and for you to hear the buzz and inspirational words from Antonio is a gift, I am proud to give.
You can pre-order my cookbook – publishing date is July 2017.
