In the 25 years since Alisa Barry founded her award-winning artisan food company, Oprah has twice named Bella Cucina one of her Favorite Things. Barry remains owner and CEO, but her business card reads “creative director” because creating is what energizes her. She is at once entrepreneurial, expressive, and adventurous.
Bella Cucina's previous brick-and-mortar location shuttered in 2013, but just in time for the holidays, the Atlanta-based brand of Italian spreads and sauces is back at the Shops Buckhead Atlanta.
When I met Alisa Barry 18 years ago, she was launching her Italian-inspired pantry products business, Bella Cucina, and my family had just started making annual summer treks to the Ligurian coast—where we now own a second home. Needless to say, we Italophiles bonded immediately.
