WHAT'S ON

Who better to kick off a pasta celebration at Carluccio's in Reuters Plaza than the man behind the name, Antonio Carluccio.

The bubbly culinary whizz - one half of the Two Greedy Italians with Gennaro Contaldo - will juggle the launch of La Festa Della Pasta with signing copies of his new book, Pasta: By Antonio Carluccio, on May 22.

Wharfers can brush up on their kitchen skills with a personalised copy of the cookbook, priced at £20, when the event starts at 1pm.

And while on a lunchtime immersed in Italian cuisine, a host of new pasta varieties including orzo, candeloni and pannocchie will be available to buy in the Carluccio's shop.

The pasta festival runs until July 20.
