The Italian celebrity chef will host a cooking masterclass at the Melbourne Food and Wine Festival

A crowd favourite during 2009’s Melbourne Food and Wine Festival, Carlo Cracco is back for 2017. Chef-owner of Milan’s Ristorante Cracco, and judge on MasterChef Italia, Cracco is considered a pioneer of progressive Italian cooking.

Cracco will host a master class on traditional Italian cuisine "reinvented" on April 1.

His dishes all have origins in tradition but have been reinvented and modernised, playing on contrasts of textures, flavours and colours. Cracco has trained under both French and Italian masters, including Alain Ducasse, Lucas Carton and Gualtiero Marchesi, whose restaurant was the first in Italy to be awarded three Michelin stars.

His restaurant Ristorante Cracco has two Michelin stars and has been on the World’s 50 Best List three times since 2007.
