From an obituary in The Economist…

Carluccio the brand had come to obscure the man. The glossy stores were too far removed from handling and making things. They were too far from the woods and the joys of gathering, but that was the life that was true to him. The motto he chose was in natura veritas. In Nature lay his truth

Antonio Carluccio died on November 8th

The obituary in the Economist is frequently a piece of art – better than the best editorial in most other news organisations. I live reading them 🙂

P.S.: Carluccio’s on St John’s Wood high street was also our first frequently visited Italian place, in our first year in the UK 🙂
