We had the pleasure of tasting Luca & Bosco Ice Cream earlier this month at the Harlem Helps Benefit in Ginny’s Supper Club.  With a unique flavor palate, Harlem- based Luca & Bosco Ice Cream has been captivating New Yorkers since its inception in 2012. We were able to catch up with Ruthie and Catherine, the founders of Luca & Bosco, to learn more about their sweet business.

On Wednesday night, the Harlem community and beyond joined together to raise up our neighbors who had suffered the terrible explosion at E 116th and Park Ave. weeks ago. Through ticket sales, raffles, and auctions, we were able to raise over $50,000 to support the efforts of the American Red Cross of Greater New York in aiding the survivors. And those who could not give money gave their time, effort, and goodwill, all of which made the benefit a truly a night to remember.

“For so long Harlem had just been an idea to me, found in books and music when growing up in Sweden and then working in France. It was Langston Hughes and Miles Davis, the Apollo and the Y, and Malcolm X sitting in a dark corner of Small’s Paradise. It was the center of black culture, the center of cool, a place so remote to me in Europe that I could hardly imagine it. Now I was here, feeling it.”

African, Restaurant Week, Red Rooster Harlem, recipes

Culture and food go hand in hand, and it has always played a major role in the way people eat. Food brings people together and once cultures cross, more and more people want to know and learn about, not only the food, but the people and things that make the food special. New York City is the home of diversity and it’s only natural to want to embrace culture and food when here. Everyday when you enter the doors of Red Rooster Harlem, you never know what cultures you will find. One day you maybe having lunch next to a born and bred New Yorker, and when you come back for dinner you may dine next to someone from Australia. This is whats so great about culture, you learn something everyday. Read More
