Meet Plaxy Exton, wife of none other than Italian Michelin-starred chef and restaurateur Giorgio.
Lately (September of 2022), the Italian culinary was taking himself to The MasterChef to sort the best of the best celeb cooks in the Chef’s Table challenge. And with these episodes of chef Giorgio almost upon us, let’s look at who his wife Plaxy Exton is.
Meet Plaxy Exton, Chef Giorgio Locatelli Wife
Chef Georgio has been married to his wife Plaxy Exton for more than 20 years.
They met in 1989 and were engaged by 1992. Then, finally the year 1995 saw them exchange wedding vows as well.
Together for nearly 30 years together, Giorgio and Plaxy have been unable to resist the distance. Plaxy in the course of an interview for Il Corriere confessed that the first two seasons of MasterChef have turned their lives upside down. In her native language, she said, between sets and the matches Giorgio is required to be away from home for like five months every year. Him in Milan and she in London, they often feel miserable, she said back in December 2021.
Giorgio, also in several interviews, defined Plaxy as the pillar of the family and the one who helped him in all of his most important decisions.
As of 2022, Giorgio and Plaxy were also working together at Locanda Locatelli, their restaurant located in London. So, when Giorgio has no other commitments, he is working and living in the United Kingdom with his wife.
Do Chef Giorgio Locatelli And Plaxy Exton Have Any Kids?
Yes. Chef Giorgio and his wife also have parental roles to play. The couple lives with their kids Margherita, also known as Dita, and Jack, Plaxy’s son from a previous relationship, in their home in Camden, north London.
Before getting married to Giorgio, Plaxy had ended a relationship from which her son Jack was born (reportedly in 1990). Luckily, Giorgio was immediately very good to Jack and even started calling himself the young man’s dad.
As for Margherita, she came into their parents’ lives likely in 1997 as reportedly she was 18 by April 2015. Margherita, it is said, suffers from food intolerances and runs the risk of an anaphylactic crisis. On holiday in the south of France when she was a baby, she ate some smoked salmon and went into anaphylactic shock. Thereafter, her parents went on to record that she was apparently allergic to 600 different things.
Back in 2015, when The Guardian covered her story as to how the Locatelli family was dealing with her life-threatening condition, she was in her first year of university, and seemed pretty much at ease with her condition and was despite everything determined to get on with her life. She said had she not been born into this family and any other family she would not still be alive.
Also, while Jack went to Northern Film School, Leeds Metropolitan University, and Acland Burghley School, Margherita studied at the University of Bristol and Camden School for Girls.
