The eldest of five and first-born son, Chef Neil Fusco grew up on a small farm in southern Italy. 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. If his food wasn’t harvested from his family farm in southern Italy, it came from neighbors, friends, or local market, which only grew his appreciation for nature and of Italy. Eventually, Chef Neil and his family immigrated to New York, where he 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 while building bonds around the kitchen table, the same way harvesting tomatoes built a bond between his own family. With each jar of Cucina Antica® sauce, you can bring the true, homemade taste of Italy to your home.
