Eat the Street masterclass brings taste of Italy to Lismore

Wednesday, 28 February

Foodies are invited to learn the culinary secrets of an Italian cooking heavyweight at two special Eat the Street masterclasses with guest chef Luca Ciano.

Luca is internationally acclaimed for his cuisine and has produced his own signature product range of pasta sauces and olive oils as well as the cookbook Luca’s Seasonal Journey.

His two masterclasses on Saturday, 10 March invite people to enjoy three courses of cooking and eating plus a signed cookbook to take home. But hurry, there are only eight places in each masterclass.

“For foodies and people who love spending time cooking at home or for loved ones, this is an event not to be missed,” City Centre Manager Jason Mumford said.

“Luca is an inspirational cook with a great passion for food that comes from his Italian roots. Spending time with him cooking, eating, laughing and learning is like taking a holiday amongst the olive groves and orchards of Italy. His love of food is infectious and you will leave sated, satisfied and totally inspired.”

Born and raised in the Italian culinary capital of Milan, Luca inherited his passion for food from his Nonna at the age of eight and was always destined to become a chef.

Luca’s list of career achievements includes the famous two Michelin-starred restaurant ‘Il Luogo di Aimo e Nadia’ in Milan, as well as international roles at London’s Millennium Gloucester Hotel and Relais & Chateaux in Bermuda. In his adopted homeland of Australia, he has been at the helm of Sheraton on the Park, The Westin in Sydney and the Cypress Lakes Resort in the Hunter Valley.

In 2001/2002, he took part in the Salon Culinaire International de Londres Competition where he was awarded a medal for Senior Pasta Class, and a merit award in the Master Chef Grand Prix. A number of his signature dishes from his London roles have been published in Chefs of Distinction.

Recently, Luca was awarded the ‘Les Toques Blances D’Honneur’ honorary professional career award in Italy by the APCI (Professional Italian Chef Association).

Luca currently consults for restaurants, hotels, magazines and Italian brands in Australia and around the world, and has appeared on Channel 7’s The Morning Show, Studio 10 and on ABC, 2GB Radio and TVSN.

There are two masterclasses with Luca Ciano during the Eat the Street festival on Saturday, 10 March – 1.30pm-3pm and 4pm-5.30pm. Tickets are $90 per person and include three courses and a signed copy of Luca’s Seasonal Journey cookbook.
