$1,200 for a table of ten

This November one of our favourite Federal Street celebrity chef's Sean Connolly welcomes the godfather of Italian cuisine, Commendatore Antonio Carluccio (OBE, OMRI), to his kitchen for a delicious Christmas event. 

The two chefs are set to join forces to curate a traditional Italian Christmas feast paired with specially selected wines. The exclusive lunch is followed by a question and answer session led by Sean with Antonio talking about his life and love of his native Italy’s cuisine.

Antonio Carluccio is a much respected Italian cookery writer, cook, restaurateur and food expert and has been championing Italian food for more than 50 years. Recognised as one of New Zealand’s leading chefs, Connolly brought Gusto to life from inception and talks about Carluccio being his main inspiration for the Auckland restaurant.

“I am very excited to be joining my good friend Sean for the first time at Gusto,” says Antonio Carluccio. “We both share the same philosophy of simple, authentic Italian food and passion for fresh seasonal ingredients, all of which guests will be able to experience at our luncheon.”

Tickets to A Carluccio Christmas at Gusto at the Grand are limited and are available to purchase as tables of 10, costing $1,200 ($120 per head) which includes lunch and wine pairing. 

$2 per hour to a max of $12 on weekends and a $12 flat rate for weekday evenings at The Civic car park. Find out more
