Announcement    I come from a traditional Italian family from Sorrento, a small town near Naples; my father always worked in the restaurant business and by the time I was born my Mom was a full-time mom, so grew up in a house always filled with the flavors and aromas from southern Italian dishes and that fueled my passion for cooking.

Italians take great pride in their traditions and their cuisine is no exception. Mealtimes are an integral part of our daily routine and a special time to share with family and friends.

From my father & mother, I learned not only how to cook and enjoy cooking, but most important how to spend and enjoy family time together while cooking and eating.

When my kids and I moved to the United States in Jan 2011, we started to experience the differences between Italian and American food. Traditional Italian dishes are prepared from scratch with fresh and natural ingredients and are a big part of why true Italian dishes are so flavorful and nutritious, so we were surprised that the supermarkets here were so large and full of prepared foods so is not need to spend all day cooking and easier to pull out a frozen dinner than to make one from scratch with fresh ingredients.

Life here is pretty busy with tight schedules but we try to hold to our traditions and in every chance we get we like to gather and spent time cooking, eating and enjoying with family and friends. One person cuts the tomatoes, another boils the water for the pasta, and others will set the table, when the meal is ready we sit down to eat and visit and it can last a long time as we stay at the table after everyone have finished eating to talk about the day, plans for the next day or even playing a game of cards.

Other thing we noticed was that the products labeled as “Italian” had not really an authentic Italian flavor. At first, it was difficult for me to adjust to American foods and flavors and the quick mealtimes but I always have enjoyed trying new flavors and creating new dishes so it was a great opportunity for me to try new things, however my kids did not always like them and often heard how much they missed the food and flavors from Italy, and sometimes when I had some fresh basil they quickly asked for some to smell it because it would make them feel like they were back home and sometimes I would even find them randomly holding a basil leaf at home which it broke my heart.

My family is my life, and I will always do whatever is necessary to keep them happy, so this is how A&A Alta Cucina was born, as a way to capture the essence of Italian flavors and aromas with fresh and local ingredients that would allow my kids to transport their senses back to Italy and also as a way to share and give this experience to my new American friends.

I hope that through my products I am able to make you experience from the comfort of your home this too: enjoy the authentic aromas and flavors of the Italian cuisine

How my passion became my inspiration

I founded A&A Alta Cucina Italia 6 years ago when I arrived at the United States from Italy, as a way to share my passion for cooking and the authentic flavors and aromas, that comes from an Italian home’s kitchen, with my new friends so they could discover and enjoy them also in the comfort of their home easily.

A&A Alta Cucina’s vision goes beyond just the product - we want our consumers to be able to enjoy an outstanding Italian culinary experience and that they remember them and return to us every time they are longing for an authentic Italian culinary experience, and my purpose is to offer this in the easy, delightful and healthiest way so they can experience this at home.

Since the beginning until now, we have made them in small batches, using only the finest 100% natural local ingredients to ensure the best flavor and quality, hand bottling and responsibly hand packing them with care and in earth friendly materials with in-house designed labels.
