Cucina. Tradizione. Famiglia.

Benvenuto alla cucina di Luca!

The Italian culinary tradition is as rich as it is vast. Luca is working to bring gems from the past to life.

For those living outside of the bel paese, it’s easy to forget that what we now know as Italy was once a collection of individual regions, each with their own unique culture, language, and tradition.

As Italy unified and became one of the culinary centers of the world, it was only natural that some standout dishes became the most famous. Spaghetti with Meatballs. Deep dish pizza. Ravioli. Etc.

But along the way, many incredible foods and recipes fell by the wayside.

Luca’s goal is to create recipe books that revive forgotten, culturally important recipes for food enthusiasts to enjoy all over again. The recipes in his books may challenge your skill in the kitchen or stretch your tastebuds.

Dive in and enjoy la vera cucina italiana.
