Hey guys I’m going to keep this snappy as my head is pounding (currently trying to beat two bugs that are going head to head with one another: a bad cold and a tummy bug-thanks kids for so generously passing on your germs)… and it’s also a very sad day as the legend Antonio Carluccio whom I was lucky enough to collaborate with over the years, passed away this morning.

Antonio taught me the importance of simple ingredients and flavoursome rustic Italian food. It was a privilege to have seen and filmed with him last at his 80th birthday party. You can read about it HERE.

I’ve added this archive post to the linky this week as a way to celebrate this great culinary master’s life and I will be writing a tribute soon.

I’ve also added a pea pasta recipe I went live with today. Before even hearing of Antonio’s death, I thought of him as I wrote it and how much he taught me.

Please, as always, link up your glorious posts and videos and share the love.

It’s an honour and privilege to open up my blog to showcase your work and I really appreciate you choosing to join the party,

Much love,

    I’m so sad to hear the news about Antiono Carluccio. My heart goes out to his family. I’m lucky, the past couple of germs our toddler dragged home from nursery, were generously shared with her daddy. Even though I don’t know what’s worse, being ill, or Mark having manflu x

    It’s so sad that Antonio has died, he always seemed like such a kind and cheerful man. I was listening to an interview with him on R4 yesterday and he was talking about his childhood and how his mother was his inspiration. Hope you feel better soon Vicki!
