Two Greedy Italians: Carluccio and Contaldo's Return to Italy. Antonio Carluccio and Gennaro Contaldo


While “Two Greedy Italians” might seem to be an insult, but the attention-grabbing phrase is also the name of a BBC television series that has brought Antonio Carluccio and Gennaro Contaldo fame and fortune in the the UK.  Not content with TV success,  the two greedy guys have brought their unique friendship to the page with a culinary travel book.

Antonio and Gennaro had yet to meet when they both decided to leave Italy for the UK decades ago.  When the two Italians met in Britain they soon became friends and started working together as experts in Italian cuisine. More than 30 years after their friendship began, the duo took a trip back to their native country to rediscover the ingredients, tastes, traditions and stories of the shared culinary heritage that first brought them together in a foreign country.  The more than 100 recipes range from classic dishes to contemporary cuisine, but all of them showcase the attention to quality and simplicity that define Italian food and make the people who eat it so greedy for more.
