International celebrity chef Antonio Carluccio to visit the Market

Antonio4Next month we’re getting a very special visitor at the Market. None other than international celebrity chef, Antonio Carluccio. In town in July as the patron of The Canberra & Capital Region Truffle Festival, Antonio will join Minister Andrew Barr with a live cooking demonstration at the Market on 26 July.

With the official title of Commendatore Antonio Carluccio, the Italian equivalent of a British knighthood, and having received an OBE from Britain in 2006 for his services to the catering industry, Antonio is a much loved and respected Italian cookery writer, chef, restaurateur and food expert.

He is well loved in Australia for his SBS show ‘Two Greedy Italians’ and has also been a guest on Masterchef Australia. Antonio will tour the Market on 26 July, and will also do a book signing following his cooking demonstration with the Minister.
