Radicchioblog is going to be an interactive space where we can exchange ideas with our members, readers, and friends. We want to create an area where everything is discussed, somewhat like sitting around a table with friends over good food and wine. We chose Radicchio as a name because it is a quintessentially Italian vegetable which can be found in certain regions of the country, specifically the Veneto.
Radicchio is beautiful and brings color and life to any garden where it grows or dish where it is served. It conveys something exotic and special while it is at the same time familiar. Radicchio, therefore, is a symbol to us of all things Italian, an ancient and vegetable which offers hours of pleasure in a variety of ways. We hope this blog will provide the same.
Radicchioblog is a blog by Alta Cucina, an epicurean society for those who want to explore, share, and celebrate premium Italian cuisine and wines. Altacucina has recently launched an online store and opened an event space on 38th street and Madison Avenue in Manhattan.
