Antonio Carluccio wrote 22 cookbooks over the course of his career

The hospitality world paid tribute to “Godfather of Italian cuisine” Antonio Carluccio following the news of his death on Wednesday.

Carluccio, who founded restaurant group Carluccio’s in 1999, owned restaurants in Britain, Turkey and the United Arab Emirates, and wrote 22 cookbooks over the course of his career, was known as the “godfather” of classic Italian cooking.

Neil Wickers, chief executive of Carluccio’s restaurants, told the drinks business that the chef was “a huge inspiration” with a zest for life and sense of humour which will be deeply missed by the executive board.

Jamie Oliver, who worked with Carluccio in the 1990s, shared his experiences on Instagram.

Chef Gino D’Acampo wrote on Twitter: “I’d like to dedicate tonight’s episode of ‘Italian Coastal Escape’ to my good friend Antonio @CookCarluccio.

Nigella Lawson also shared her condolences in Italian: “Riposi in pace.”
