Antonio Carluccio pleased the crowds last month

Late last month, we were lucky enough to get a visit from international celebrity chef, Antonio Carluccio. And he didn’t disappoint. He joined Minister Andrew Barr with a live cooking demonstration, market tour and book signing on Saturday 26 July. And just what did he think of the Market? Chef Carluccio said in his interview with The Canberra Times that our Market “is very fresh and very genuine.”

An estimated 300 plus people turned up to see his early morning cooking demonstration and we were thrilled with the response. Antonio Carluccio also said that at the Market “there is a very good choice of food. (you are) Lucky to have a good market.”

And yes, we are! We thank the organisers of The Truffle Festival of the Canberra and Capital Region for bringing Antonio Carluccio to Canberra as the patron of this year’s event.
