Who’s Luca?

Who’s Luca?

 

 

Luca’s Italy is about real Italian food and culture. Not the food which is served in Italian restaurants around the world, but that which is eaten by Italians in Italy: the real deal. Luca Marchiori was born in Italy to an Italian father and British mother and was brought up astride both cultures. So he’s the perfect guide to introduce you to and explain the culture of his homeland.

As an adult, he lived Switzerland, and France, before returning to his native Italy. Although based in the Tuscan village of Caprese Michelangelo, he currently divides his time between Venice, Rome, Tuscany, and the UK.

Luca has written for, among others,Tuscanycious! , the offical website of the Tuscan Tourist Board, and Great Italian Chefs. He can currently be seen on Netflix’s Somebody Feed Phil, talking about the great love of his life, Venice.

Interesting post – thankyou. I think Tiramisu was actually “invented” in the late 50s – but certainly in Treviso as you state. I had always assumed it was a much older recipe.

Thank you John and thanks for following. I always thought it was the 1960s, but recent research shows (as outlined in the article I linked to) shows that it didn’t appear on the menu at Le Beccherie until 1972, which surprised me.

Hi Luca – OK, perhaps I should go to Treviso to investigate at Le Beccherie! Reading the article I get the impression that the dish was served earlier then the 70’s but that the formal “registration” of the exact formulation of the recipe was only done in 1971/1972. After nearly 40 years in Italy I decided I should really learn how to make it – however I have to admit that the recipe I make has a couple of minor variations compared to the classic recipe.
