Not French Italian!

Sadly Antonio Carluccio OBE has passed away this morning. For those who have been fortunate enough to have eaten at his restaurant, he was one of the warmest, most welcoming chefs/people I have ever met, a wonderful host.

Re: Not French Italian!

I never ate at his restaurant, though I did eat at other Italian places in Soho in my youth. always a good welcome, and ambiance.
Recently , on visits to the UK, we've eaten at an Italian place  somewhere off the M4, and had the same kind of welcome and friendly chat. The host/cook came to the UK as a child just after WW2, married an english girl (from Newcastle!) and started a restaurant business. Very good food too.
