"“Never let the past follow too closely...”
Leopold S Lurdan
Leopold S Lurdan, an internationally acclaimed food writer and feared
restaurant reviewer is an old school friend of Marco Bragg, a successful
celebrity chef, entrepreneur and television personality.
Lurdan is embarking upon his ‘Italian Project’, a culinary journey tracking
through the streets of Rome to the hill top towns of Piedmont, researching
his new book on the regional cucina of Italy, Lurdan On The Food And
Culinary Traditions Of Central And Northern Italy. A rambunctious critic of
the fusion movement, Lurdan detests innovation for its sake alone.
Lurdan and Bragg are seeking rapprochement after a series of increasingly
bitter exchanges in their respective newspaper columns following Lurdan’s
latest scathing review of Sol Invictus, Bragg’s widely acclaimed flagship
restaurant. The recently remarried Bragg and his young wife Tiffany
who are honeymooning in Italy have been invited to spend an indulgent
weekend at La Fortuna, Lurdan’s restored 18th century villa.
Coming together again, the friends retrace their lives from school days
through to the professional success each has enjoyed, on a weekend that
will change their lives forever..."
