For 50 years Antonio Carluccio has brought genuine, local and delicious Italian food and wine to the UK, through his restaurants and TV appearances. Known for his gentle manner, gruff voice and his wild crop of white hair, Antonio, the Godfather of Italian gastronomy joins the corporate circuit for keynote speaking, after dinner speaking or teambuilding workshops.

Born in Salerno in Italy, Antonio’s father was the railway station master, and Antonio spent much of his childhood hunting for food, where his passion for mushrooms was nurtured in the hills around his home. He joined the Navy and then worked as a correspondent for La Stampa in Turin and then with Olivetti. His move to Vienna, bestowed the young adventurer with an intimate knowledge of café culture, and when he moved to Germany he became a wine merchant, which was the job that brought him to London.

He took over the Neal Street Restaurant in Covent Garden in 1981, and spent 26 years building its reputation for exquisite food and refined service, as well as opening a deli next door. In 1998 the first Carluccio's Caffè opened and soon became a luxury high street chain, making its founder a household name.

Giving up his directorship, Antonio still works with the team on chef training and menu development.

Antonio was not only spreading the word about his brand, but also making TV appearances and writing books, starting with An Invitation to Italian Cooking, which became the first of twelve books, published and sold extensively all over the world.

His 12-part series for BBC2 about Italy and its food brought his face and personality to the Carlucciuo’s brand.
Antonio is the perfect host for corporate cookery teambuilding events and as a keynote speaker. He is an excellent and humorous anecdotal after dinner speaker.
