Antonio Carluccio OBE, OMRI

Italian Chef, Restaurateur, Writer & TV Presenter

Antonio Carluccio OBE, OMRI has been the face of Italian cooking in the UK for over 40 years. Regularly on our TV screens, Antonio has been at the forefront and a key driving force in converting the British pallet into a more Mediterranean one through his many cook books and of course the Carluccio restaurant chain. He is credited for training and inspiring many celebrity chefs and is now seen as the godfather of Italian cooking and a national treasure. This has earned him both an OBE in the UK and a Commendatore OMRI for services to Italian gastronomy, the equivalent of a British knighthood.

"Antonio is one of Italy's great food ambassadors"
