WHO ARE WE?
il mare - Calabria, Italy
Our story begins in Italia! This is where the original recipes were formed and the inspiration for our menu was born.
In the 1950s, our Nonni (Grandparents) migrated from the Puglia and Calabria regions in southern Italy to Melbourne, Australia. Their precious recipes and traditions were passed down to their own children and then down to us, the Grandkids. Now, we want to pass onto you this bellissimo food that we have been eating and have grown up with all our lives.
Our mobile food trailer, is serving the tastiest Italian street food & coffee to the Yarra Valley and Melbourne regions.
Welcome to Via Cucina.
meet the team
A family run team made up of two sisters, together sharing their passion for their Italian heritage
Ciao, I'm the owner of Via Cucina.
You will find me cooking, serving and chatting in the vintage food trailer. If i'm not doing that you might find me travelling, eating or soaking up the sunshine.
The love I have for my Italian heritage, traditions, food & coffee has proudly brought to life Via Cucina. When I saw the Via Cucina trailer, you could say 'that's amore!'.
I can't wait to share with you the food, history and love.
Hey, I’m Josie! I will be part of the Via Cucina team, making coffees, serving, cooking and second in charge.
Anyone that knows me will know that I can’t function without a coffee in hand (or 4) which shows, without a doubt my Italian heritage!
I can’t wait to meet and serve all who come to Via Cucina and share my passion for food and coffee with you (If you can see me over the bench top as I wasn’t gifted the tall gene)
