No need to get into a vegetative state this Christmas listeners! Why? Well because:

The godfather of pasta, Antonio Carluccio, will be at Swindon’s Designer Outlet next Friday (16.12.16), where he will be signing copies of his new cookbook Vegetables (as well as his other collections) and sharing some hints and tips on how to give your Christmas veg a festive Italian twist.

So chop chop!

A bit about Mr Carluccio:

From Antonio Carluccio’s website: ‘Commendatore Antonio Carluccio is an OBE, OMRI and a much loved and respected Italian cookery writer, cook, restaurateur and food expert. He was raised in the rural North West of Italy; this gave 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 fungi with his father.’

About his new book ‘Antonio Carluccio’s Vegetables’:

‘Antonio describes in loving detail how to buy and prepare 100 different varieties of vegetable, from leaves and roots to pods, seeds and shoots, and from squashes, pulses and grains to herbs, spices, nuts and mushrooms.

Although vegetables are at the very heart of his recipes, Antonio also shows us how to complement them with meat and fish.

Recipes showcase the versatility of vegetables through vibrant salads, tarts, pasta, soups and stews, risotto, dips, jams and pickles as well as cakes, biscuits and ice cream.’
