Discover the excellences of Lazio with Giancarlo Caldesi at Welcome Italia 2018.
We are waiting for you all at the Royal Horticultural Halls (October 5th at 4 pm) to enjoy his cooking show.
As a businessman he is the owner of the Caldesi Group of Restaurants and Cookery Schools with restaurants in London’s Marylebone and culinary mecca, Bray, in Berkshire. A passionate chef Giancarlo can often be found cooking at the restaurants and entertaining diners with his stories behind the Italian regional dishes he creates.
His live work includes a number of UK and International food festivals such as Masterchef Live, Foodies Festivals, Good Food and Wine Shows and Taste Italia where he entertains audiences with his lively yet informative cookery demonstrations.
With his wife Katie he has written several cookery books about Italian regional cousine, such as ‘Rome: Centuries in an Italian Kitchen’. In this book the duo present their interpretations of classic dishes, like Katie’s Cacio e Pepe (spicy cheese and pepper pasta), alongside family favourites like Spigola in Saltimbocca (seabass with parma ham and sage leaves). Collaborating with Rome’s best chefs, they share modern Italian recipes like Sorbetto di Peperone, a fiery hot chilli sorbet that reflect the heat and colour of this bustling city. This is an impressive, fresh look at Rome s cuisine.
He also is a regular contributor to articles for National newspapers and food magazines with a specialism on the food of Tuscany, where he was born.
In 2010 Giancarlo was awarded the ‘Ordine Della Stella Della Solidarieta Italiana’ (The Order of Italian Solidarity) by the Italian government, one of the highest honors an Italian chef can receive.
