Chef Neil Fusco grew up on a small farm in southern Italy, where hard work was part of everyday life. Every morning, he and his family rose with the sun and followed their mother on the mile-long trek to the family's tomato fields. The earth and its fruit were their livelihood, so they cared for it with the same attention to which you might care for a dear family member.
Eventually, the Fusco family immigrated to New York, where Chef Neil began working in the food industry, first as a restaurant owner and chef and then as the founder of Cucina Antica. In building Cucina Antica Foods, Corp., Chef Neil's goal has been to offer a quality product that families can feel good about sharing around the kitchen table. That's why, we value cooking and sharing a homemade meal with your family to make lifelong traditions and memories.
"In my memories of early childhood, it was those moments of sharing around our worn, crowded table - often loud with my father's stories and my sisters' laughter. We learned to cherish the earth because we cherished those moments together, and ultimately because we cherished each other."
