Antonio Carluccio RIP 19.04.1937-08.11.2017

I briefly met Antonio Carluccio to take his portrait, when he was promoting the eating of edible wild mushrooms, something he was very passionate about. I have been picking wild mushrooms since a small boy with my Polish family and friends, so its something i also appreciated. I got him to pose up with my favourite mushrooms, the apricot-aroma’d chanterelles He was a huge influence on food culture in the UK,
