The acclaimed food-writer died last week at the age of 65.

Tullio was well-known as the Irish Independent’s food critic, and for his appearances on “The Restaurant”, which aired on RTÉ, before moving to TV3 this year.

His regular appearances on Seán Moncrieff’s afternoon show on Newstalk were extremely popular with listeners.
