Buon appetito: A cosy weekend away with Antonio Carluccio

April 2, 2014 Hotel Deals No Comments Email Email

Emirates Wolgan Valley Resort & Spa, Australia’s luxury conservation-based resort, is joining forces with international celebrity chef Antonio Carluccio to host the culinary event of the year on 18-20 July 2014.

Antonio Carluccio (LR)Regarded as the Godfather of Italian gastronomy, the much loved and respected Italian chef is well known for the popular SBS show Two Greedy Italian Chefs, as well as his many cook books and Carluccio’s restaurant chain in London.

Antonio is also famously passionate about mushrooms and has been collecting, cooking and devising recipes for mushrooms for over 60 years. Fittingly, he will be visiting Australia this winter as patron of The Truffle Festival of the Canberra and capital region where he will be enjoying locally grown truffle.

In celebration of his patronage of The Truffle Festival, Antonio will craft a truffle-inspired Italian-influenced food and wine experience that is grounded on Wolgan Valley’s food philosophy of regional, seasonal and organic produce sourced from within 100 miles (160km).

Guests will be treated to countless gastronomic delights including a signature degustation dinner created by Antonio, a cooking demonstration, an intimate Q&A session with Antonio by the fireplace, as well as a wine tasting session with some of the region’s best winemakers.

“I will be glad to be visiting the antipodean part of the world where truffles are available and I am very much looking forward to my stay at Emirates Wolgan Valley Resort & Spa and exploring the Australian countryside,” said Antonio Carluccio.

“We are truly honoured and extremely excited to have Antonio Carluccio joining us for what will no doubt be an unforgettable weekend. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for food lovers to witness Antonio’s passion for authentic and rustic cooking in the majestic surroundings of Wolgan Valley. We anticipate that this will be a sell-out event,” said Joost Heymeijer, General Manager, Emirates Wolgan Valley Resort & Spa.
