Our Story

Welcome to Terra Americana! My name is Julie Cecchini, I am the founder of this destination.  It is a one stop shop for creative cooking. We hope to inspire you with recipes, ingredients and ideas.  

Our story is a journey.  It evolved from a fusion of my loves for food and travel.  Starting with my two grandmothers.  Nana was an elegant Irish lady who showed me the world.  Grandma, whose real name was Rocci Valentine, was a force to be reckoned with.  That lady stole the show and one of her favorite places was the kitchen. They influenced me to gain knowledge on distant shores but remember my roots.  

I've traveled the world looking for unique and inspirational stories.  From farmers markets in Springfield and Seattle to the silk market in Shanghai I am always looking for innovations to share.
