Interview with Gilles, Cucina Corsa founder
With almost 5000 users/months spread into 94 countries, the Cucina Corsa App launched by Gilles has already won its challenge : Make people discovery the Corsican gastronomy with an App that contains recipes and places where people can buy Corsican products. Before its 1st birthday, the Cucina Corsa creator share with Andemu his feedback over the past year.
What is Cucina Corsa ?
Cucina Corsa is the application that gives you access to a wide range of corsican recipes. The app gives you info about corsican products, advices you how to cook these recipes, and hosts a section “close to” that allows to find out the closest corsican makers and shops.
This project is born from a feedback : It did not exist any applications of this type before. The purpose is to deliver an easy and free access to Corsican gastronomy. The App is dedicated to those who want to learn more about Corsican food. It is nice to have recipes, but it is so much better if you have informations about products and how to find them!
Why this name ?
Cucina Corsa means Cuisine Corse in Corsican language. This name remains the Cucina Corsa association created 25 years ago by Guy Bartoli, Vincent Tabarani and Marcel Euvrard, 3 people created this association in order to promote Corsican gastronomy and products from island to everyone. I did not have time to contact them but a partnership to link their activites with the Application could be a nice thing.
