Flash History

Cookucina is all these things.  A six-part digital video series presented by two vivacious and attractive 40-something (and a bit!) women – Cookucina is a simple bi-lingual celebration of regional Italian food and the all-natural ingredients grown in the lush countryside in the foothills of the Sibillini Mountains.

  1. Hello…just watched episode 1 and I’m hooked. We have a little place in Loro Piceno and visit Sarnano regularly ( at least to visit Andrea who deals with our internet connection when we are in Italy) .Looking forward to watching the other programmes ( purchased on Amazon) and learning abut the local cuisine in Le Marche …and yes, I will buy the book.

    • Hi Mary, Thank you so much for your kind comments – it means a lot. You are the first to find us online (or at least the first we know about!) I wonder, where did you actually find the series (it’s on three platforms)? It would be really great if you could post a review on whichever platform it was, as that will help others to find it.

      Do you mind if I let Tam have details of your website? She is looking to start a photography site and could do with some inspiration!

      Non sono mai andato in Sicilia, ma spero andare presto. Dov’e la vostra casa?

      Many thanks

    • Thank you for your reply Stephen! Because I am obsessed with Italy and cooking, I found your Cookucina Series through searching ‘Cook’ on my Apple TV then TV Shows. It came up under PBS and I bought the series through iTunes. It’s wonderful and then I started googling and found your blog and website but FB was not up to date. Then I realized there was an earthquake in the town! Please start your next series ‘Cookucina Travels to….’

      We have a home in Ispica, Sicily which is the Provincia Di Ragusa near Modica and Noto…old old Baroque Towns with delicious food and sweets.
      If you ever decide to bring your series to southeastern Sicily you have my kitchen!

      I am an artist and own a card and gift company primarily for Pet Lovers. Yes please do show Tam and if you have any questions I’m here ….being in business for 35 years comes with much experience! I’m positive she has some incredible photographs of Italy and Cooking!
      Grazie,
      Mary

      • Thank you for all that info Mary. I shall look up Ispica. You are right, we did suffer from the recent earthquake. in fact there were more than one – the first was in August, but the biggest were in October. Or house needs repairing but is still standing. Much of the local agricultural economy has been hit though. The road to recovery for this region will be long and hard. i hope that Cookucina will raise awareness of the region and help in some small way. Tam has been writing a blog about the situation post-terremoto, if you are interested. It’s on WordPress (land of the Forgotten Earthquakes), or at https://medium.com/@tamsen
        best wishes
        Stephen
