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.

  1. 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.

    1. I agree jnwall - I was so sad when I read that last night!

      1. Very sad. Glad I kept my back copies. Great recipes! Will be missed.

        1. 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.

          1. Any suggestions for other Italian food magazines?

              Unless you subsrcibe to the original Italian La Cucina. Gambero Rosso publishes a US magazine quarterly, mostly about travel wine, and food in Italy, but interesting and well-done, with some recipes.
