Published by Vandenberg Edizioni in Lucca, Italy, Cook_inc. is an international periodical. Unwavering in its responsibility to create honest and engaging stories, Cook_inc. continues to push boundaries and in doing so, has crossed over into a new realm, more than a journal and collection of words and images, maturing into something of cultural significance, something other, higher; an essential must-have for epicureans and a collector’s item without an expiration date
Who we are
“Cook_inc.” as inc (lusive), inc (orporate). First launched in Lucca, Tuscany, at the foot of the Apuan Alps, in November 2011, during an era in which the death of print was predicted, Cook_inc. stared into the so-called publishing abyss, courageous in their attempt to overcome any challenges, however daunting. The very name “Cook_inc.” is a summation of their philosophy: to assimilate and incorporate new ideas related to gastronomy. Uninterested in following the easy path, they instead set out to create their own, travelling, researching, and reporting, eager to unearth the lesser-known stories while fusing such content with art, image, music and culture. More than a food journal, they remain brash enough to make predictions, set trends, and put forward a new way of thinking, dragging chefs and food from the dark, archaic well of old, and pulling them, kicking and screaming, into the fireworks of the 21st century.
