Italian food writers?
What do Marcella Hazan, Antonio Carluccio, and Anna del Conte all have in common? All of them are native born Italians, who dedicated their lives to the promotion of Italian food in Anglo-saxon countries. Yet they remain almost completely unknown in Italy. This is particularly ironic in the case of Carluccio. He was the mentor of Gennaro Contaldo—also Italian born and unknown—who was the mentor of British-born Jamie Oliver who is a household name in Italy.
