Join Luca LIVE for a series of online events dedicated to the food of the regions of Italy. Our next destination is Calabria.

Calabria forms the toe of Italy’s boot and is a peninsula surrounded by the sea on three sides: to the east, the Ionian sea, to the west the Tyrrhenian, and to the south the Strait of Messina where mainland Italy kisses the almost mythical island of Sicily. It’s a land of heat and passion even in its food where spicy peppers meet dark red onions to create a cuisine as dramatic as its coast line.

Includes:

– Talk on the Italian region of Calabria and its food and wine

– Exclusive recipes

– Live cooking demonstration

– Q&A session

– Lifetime access to recording

This is a recording of a LIVE event which took place on 22 December 2020.

Join Luca LIVE for a series of online events dedicated to the food of the regions of Italy. Our next destination is Basilicata.

Basilicata is located in the instep of Italy’s boot and is the crossroads of southern Italy. Sometimes referred to by its ancient name of Lucania it contains the almost mythical cave city of Matera. Recently, Matera has become popular as a film destination used in, among others, The Passion of the Christ (2004) and No Time to Die (2021) but other breathtaking towns are still to discover.  

Historically, Basilicata was a poor region which adapted local ingredients to replace more expensive ones in surprising and delicious ways. We will be looking at this as well as cooking up some delicious dishes.

Includes:

– Talk on the Italian region of Basilicata and its food and wine

– Exclusive recipes

– Live cooking demonstration

This is a recording of a LIVE event which took place on 26 November 2020.

Join Luca LIVE for the first in a series of online events dedicated to the food of the regions of Italy. Our first destination is Abruzzo.

Abruzzo is suspended, like a hanging garden, between the central Apennine mountains and the Adriatic sea. To the east rises the Gran Sasso d’Italia—at 2,912m the second highest peak in Italy outside the alps—and to the west the stunning seaside of the Abruzzo coast. In the short journey from mountain to sea you will pass through some of the most picturesque villages and cities in Italy replete with artistic gems.

The cuisine of Abruzzo has its own unique flavour influenced by mountain, forest, and coastal ingredients. Some dishes are famous, others are all to discover, all washed down with the local Montepulciano d’Abruzzo wine.

Includes:

– Talk on the Italian region of Abruzzo and its food and wine

– Exclusive recipes

– Live cooking demonstration

– Cook along option

– Q&A session

– Lifetime access to recording
