RIP Antonio Carluccio
 
I liked him. Have a couple of his books and always enjoyed him on the telly, particularly the recent one with his childish compatriot.

A true great, very sad.

RIP.

I read somewhere he managed to stab himself in the chest - not sure whether deliberate or not, but blimey...

Biggineagle 08-11-2017 08:43 PM

Shame. I liked him. A joy to watch.

Wait, what...

You're saying that's how he died ? :eek:

Sh!t no, sorry. This was a few years ago I think.

Wolfnipplechips 08-11-2017 08:47 PM

Ah ok then.

Nothing to see here.

:o

Shouldn't laugh....

Really liked him. Enjoyed watching him whenever he was on the box.

Went to the Neal Street place a couple of times in the early days with clients and he was always there meeting and greeting. Even today I think the quality of food in the restaurant chain is consistent and really good value. Good bloke.

For anyone who enjoys cooking, this is particularly sad news. I loved 'Two Greedy Italians' that he did with Gennaro Contaldo.

RIP big fella.

V.Meldrew 09-11-2017 07:51 AM

I liked him as well
RIP Commendatore(he had Italian knighthood, equivalent of OBE/Sir)

Same I went there couple of times before all the telly stuff and he always stopped and had a chat about whatever it was we were eating. Really passionate and a lovely bloke.

RIP

I met him in a work-related capacity years ago. He just happened to be at the same venue, but introduced himself to the chef I was working with and was friendly and encouraging.

He seemed to be a nice guy and respected by the other professionals.

Very sad he suffered from depression from the loss of his brother - peace be with you Antonio - great cook books and loved the tour of Italy series

Owngoal 09-11-2017 09:37 AM

Has it even been mentioned on the BBC news? He was one of the pillars of bringing real Italian food beyond pizza and spag bol to the UK. Great guy and will be missed

Just checked online
The celebrity chef Antonio Carluccio has died aged 80 after a fall at his home in London yesterday morning.

Usually leads to blood clot and heart attack or stroke

A lovely fella, he once cooked for me in his Fulham house. I seem to remember being shown a tree in his back garden which he claimed to be a banana tree. I've yet to work out whether he was pulling my leg or not.

Some years ago, I used to have breakfast at Carluccios in Upper Street Islington. One morning, they were playing Italian opera in the background. Carluccio and his wife walked in, and he said hello to me. He seemed relaxed and happy and came across as a good man.

You never disappoint me, Chiswick. Thanks mate.

No doubt Aldershot will be along in a minute with his own Carluccio tale. Something like how he burnt his mouth on a beef cannelloni in the back of Carluccio's Maserati in Salerno or somesuch.
