Benvenuti Nella Nostra Famiglia!

Welcome to the DaTerra Cucina family!
We’re excited to bring our passion for cooking into your kitchen.

The Center of a Family is the Kitchen

Our kitchen is the heart of our home. We have a passion for preparing recipes and tasty dishes we’ve collected on our travels around the world.

Coming from generations of restaurateurs, my husband, Nathan, and I had a healthy head start in the culinary world. Our background gave us a deep understanding of the value of food and culture and became an integral part of educating our kids. We wanted to share our interest in the world and international cuisines, as well as the joy of cooking great food and celebrating it with others.

Our Family History

As our young family grew, we began to broaden our horizons and explore new cuisines by traveling and tasting. By the age of six months, our kids had passports, becoming citizens of the world and accompanying us on our food tours, tasting the wonderful flavors of the beautiful places we were lucky to visit on vacations. But a week here and there during spring break or summer vacations wasn’t fully satisfying our lust for adventure. We longed to genuinely and thoroughly explore what the world had to offer. What better way to do so than by setting off on a culinary backpacking adventure around the world? So, that’s exactly what we did.

In 2013 we sold our home and all our worldly belongings, packed our backpacks, and set off on a round-the-world trip for a whole year. Our boys, aged 6 and 10, were to be ‘worldschooled’ as we traveled, and we knew they’d get plenty of education on this momentous journey!

Eating Our Way Around the World

While visiting Italy, one particular kitchen product really impressed us and set an idea in motion. We encountered Italian ceramic non-stick cookware that gave us the inspiration for an entirely new venture--designing a cookware line of our own.

The following years were spent designing and developing our first product, the DaTerra Cucina pans, for American kitchens--including our own. We aimed to preserve the gorgeous look of the Italian ceramic cookware but also create a sturdy pan that would hold up under daily use. Over the next two years, the Vesuvio line was born.

Since then, we’ve been expanding our selection with more cookware highlights from around the globe. From our impressive wooden cooking and serving utensils that are hand-crafted in Tunisia with richly-grained Mediterranean olive wood to our Eisenrose knives made from German steel and finished with a beautiful natural rosewood handle, we’re proud of our cookware, and we hope you enjoy using it as much as we do.
