Carluccio’s is a trusted restaurant chain and firm favourite for those looking for consistent, quality Italian food. Antonio Carluccio became synonymous with Italian food in the UK, affectionately known as the “Godfather of Italian Gastronomy”. Over 20 years ago, Antonio and Priscilla Carluccio, driven by a genuine passion for artisan Italian produce, began sourcing and carefully curating the very best products from the length and breadth of Italy. To this day they never use a middle man, but deal directly with specialist producers to bring us the very best of Italy and you can most certainly see the care and attention to detail taken in selecting the produce in the range.
This year, Carluccio’s Christmas collection tells the story of its unique suppliers and their dedication to their craft; from family bakeries in Veneto and Genoa, to farmers in the hills of Piemonte and clementine growers in Calabria. As well as those hero products that are a must-have at Christmas, Carluccio’s bring you its largest range of panettone to date; from the most traditional, to prosecco cream-filled and limoncello-spiked varieties and, for the first time, a gluten-free option.
We’ve had the chance to sample some of the items from The Carluccio’s Christmas collection and have to say that the panettone and limoncello cups are sublime. If you’re looking for foodie Christmas gift ideas you will have so much to choose from here. All of Carluccio’s products are available in-store from the end of October and online at www.carluccios.com.
