Who is Caterina Trucco?
“Cooking, baking and eating are my passions. I grew up near Milan, in northern Italy, where every day my mom cooks each meal following the Italian culinary tradition and the recipes that she learnt from her mom and her grandma. When I moved to California a few years ago I decided to follow my passion and to spread my culinary tradition teaching Italian cuisine in the adult centers and opening Sugo. Sugo is my, and my friend and business partner Gisella, food business. We are located in San Jose and we cook lasagna, pasta, meatballs and all the most traditional and authentic Italian dishes. We love preparing everything from scratch (pasta and all the sauces) following our family recipes and our Italian taste.”
