Generations of World-Class Cuisine with Marco Pierre White & Luciano Pierre White #11
Play • 33 min

For most, this week’s guest on It Runs In The Family truly needs no introduction. Marco Pierre White - the first Brit and youngest chef to be awarded the full 3 stars from Michelin - has since exceeded the desire for their praise, focusing his efforts on tailoring top class food and atmosphere in his restaurants (and suggesting that Michelin stick to tyres).

Having his eyes set on the trade himself, his son Luciano recently opened Luccio’s in Dorchester, having learned from the best - his father, and fellow 3-star restaurateur Pierre Koffmann. 

In this revealing discussion we hear the pride that Marco takes in seeing Luciano forge his own brand, the tough love that moulded his own exceptional standards, and how to teach lessons that can only be taught through struggle.

This episode covers:

  • Marco’s intriguing transition from dreams of being a gamekeeper towards food and hospitality
  • How a fear of failure has consistently driven Marco’s strides for success
  • The way that Marco has taught Luciano to stay creative through a need to struggle
  • Investing in the young, and cultivating good talent
  • Luciano’s ability to build his own brand, away from his father’s
