La Cucina Italiana -- RIP
I am sorry to learn that the USA version of the magazine La Cucina Italiana has folded. The current issue -- January 2014 -- is to be the last one.
Frankly, this does not come as a surprise.
My wife and I receive the Italian version for many years.
3 years ago we gifted our son in California a subscription. That could not be done via the Italian publisher, but through an American distributor.
Of the 3 years subscription my son received only 5 copies. He also received a bill payment request after the first issue was received, even though it was paid in full.
Not a good track record.
Just read this in the issue we received the other day. I always enjoyed the photography but felt the recipes were not well written at all. Not really sad to see it go; my husband is the one who kept renewing the subscription.
