Antonio is one of Italy's great food ambassadors. He has written thirteen bestselling books, including Complete Italian Food, Complete Mushroom Book and Italia and has also made numerous television programmes - the latest being Carluccio and The Leopard. With Priscilla Carluccio he ran the Neal Street Restaurant in London's Covent Garden and spent 10 years developing the hugely successful Carluccio's Caffes.

More About the Author

In 1958, at the age of 21, Antonio Carluccio began to cook simple pasta suppers for himself and his flat-mate on a two-ring stove in Vienna. Now, known for his gentle manner, gruff voice and his wild crop of white hair, Antonio is regarded as the Godfather of Italian gastronomy.

Being born on the Amalfi Coast in the South and raised in the wooded North-West has given Antonio a rare and privileged breadth of culinary knowledge. It was here, in Piedmont, at the age of seven, that Antonio started his life-long past-time of hunting and collecting mushrooms and funghi with his father.

After time spent living in Germany, Antonio moved to London in 1975 and while learning English, traded as a wine merchant of Italian wines. His hobby of studying and collecting wild mushrooms continued to flourish as he found many varieties growing in the English countryside close to London, almost completely undiscovered.

Antonio took over the Neal Street Restaurant in Covent Garden in 1981, which traded for 26 years. In 1991 Antonio opened a deli next to the restaurant and in 1998 started the first Carluccio's Caffè in Market Place, London. After ten years developing the Carluccio's caffè business Antonio is no longer a director but continues to work with the Carluccio's team on menu development and chef training whilst also concentrating on new projects.

In 1983 Antonio made his first appearance on BBC 2 talking about Mediterranean food and at the same time was asked to write his first book, An Invitation to Italian Cooking. Subsequently he has written many books, published worldwide and made numerous television programmes. In 1998, Antonio was awarded the Commendatore OMRI by the President of Italy for services to Italian gastronomy, the equivalent of a British knighthood. In 2007 he was awarded an honorary OBE.

4.0 out of 5 stars Spinach Balls 24 Sept. 2010
Format:Hardcover
I have several of Carluccio's recipe books, all of which provide inspiration for terrific, tasty meals. The menu that Carluccio created for his eponymous cafes is still the family favourite over other Italian style cafe chains. How wonderful that this recipe collection includes some of those cafe favourites most notably the pasta with courgettes and spinach balls, Penne Giardiniera. Having attempted this dish on my own I can't wait to try the proper recipe. The slight, inevitable, overlap with other books by Carluccio is all that stops me giving the book 5*.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent read 2 Dec. 2009
By Daisy
Format:Hardcover
I recently purchased Antonio Carluccio's Simple Cooking and was very, very impressed by this lovely book. All the recipes work, none of them are fiddly or require expensive ingredients and every one I have tried so far has been absolutely delicious. This is a great introduction to simple Italian food and a book that will be getting a lot of use in our kitchen.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent easy-to-use cookbook 13 Jan. 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
If you enjoy italian food but hav'n't got a lot of experience of its preparation this is the book for you. The reipes are wide-ranging and clearly set-out and following them is like having Antonio at your elbow. I have used this collection of recipes nearly every week since I bought it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Carluccio's simple cooking 18 May 2010
Format:Hardcover
This is the first Carluccio book I have bought but having seen him many times on television and been impressed with his recipes I decided to try it. As the title says it is simple cooking but still strong on flavour, all the receipes I have tried, so far, have been easy to execute and turned out well. I would recommend this to people who want quick but good italian food.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic 1 Dec. 2013
By Ollie
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
If you don't have any Italian cook books or any cook books by Carluccio then this one could be for you, it is a little smaller than A4 size but has plenty of solid recipes in it. My own issue is that 'The Collection' by Antonio Carluccio has nearly all of these recipes and more so if it was up to me I would get 'The Collection'
