Antonio Carluccio, celebrity chef and restaurateur, dies at 80
One of my favourite TV chefs RIP
Shame. I quite like his eateries too.
I really enjoy making his bolognese sauce with the 50/50 beef and pork mince.
Mrs OS loved watching his cookery programmes. Bought her one of his recipe books two years ago , and she promptly put a stone and a half on me..
Remember watching him make that he learnt to do it for hundreds of people at once as a cook in the Italian Navy.
Bet he didn't say
Solo una salsiccia!
Two greedy Italians are now down to one.
I liked his sense of humour.
He was a great cook and seemed to be a sound bloke as well. Those often don't go together, so it's a bit sad to hear of his passing.
Try his pasta alla carretierre. Simple, but lush.
He will be missed. I bet his mate Genarro is heartbroken, poor soul.
Lovely man - 4 of us were eating in one of his restaurants and he came over sat down with us. He talked us through each course; ingredients, preparation, interesting recommendations and telling funny anecdotes about pretty much everything. RIP.
Sad to hear, a big character but with a passing relationship with the "black dog" I seem to recall?
I seem to recall a particularly horrendous suicide attempt a few years ago. I believe he tried to stab himself to death.
Very sad as he seemed like a genuinely warm man.

Shame, I enjoyed his programmes.
I read some of a book he wrote or extracts and he tried to kill himself a fair few times i think . Sad to hear he has passed , watching his programmes made me think of the pleasures in life of a good simple meal. Him and Genaro were funny as hell to watch as well.
I did like his chain, even if it became a generic torwards the end
I can't read a recipe that mentions olive oil without thinking of him insisting that it be "good olive oil."
