Le Cucchiare, Alessandra and Betty, are two friends who share a passion and desire for cooking and good eating, and for sharing these experiences with all others who are equally enthusiastic.
Le Cucchiare combine decades of experience: Betty in the catering and restaurant, specializing in the traditional cooking of Salento, and Alessandra in the creation of gourmet chocolate delicacies. Alessandra, who is well travelled, also has experience in public relations, event planning and the hospitality industry.
From their lives and combined life experiences came their concept of casual ‘non-cookery”. Le Cucchiare love to share their homemade dishes and recipes with new friends who want to enjoy their gracious hospitality, an unforgettable day full of traditional cuisine…and the pleasure of tasting these dishes prepared in a setting like a traditional place like farmhouse, elegant villa or even a modest Salentian home with Nona cooking in her kitchen. Le Cucchiare provide simple recipes that people, when back in their own homes, can prepare for their familiy and friends while sharing their wonderful memories of the kind people, good food and amazing hospitality of Southern Italy.
