We've seen the 'Hire a Hubby' business around but how about 'Hire a Nonna'? Right? Right! Trust us, this book will make you wish you had a live-in Italian grandmother, or, as a secondary (and probably more achievable) option that you channel a bit of that Nonna action yourself.
Our love for the handmade doesn't just extend to textiles, so Pasta Grannies had us all inspired to whip up 'Pasqualina and Maria's Tagliatelle with Tomato and Anchovy Sauce' followed by 'Tonina's Garganelli Pasta with Gypsy Sauce'! Mmmm, lucky we're hungry...
This book tugged at our heartstrings in all the right ways - a celebration of tradition and the wisdom of age, presented and designed with all the love, care and thought its pages convey.
“When you have good ingredients, you don’t have to worry about cooking. They do the work for you.” – Lucia, 85
Inspired by the hugely popular YouTube channel of the same name, Pasta Grannies is a wonderful collection of time-perfected Italian recipes from the people who have spent a lifetime cooking for love, not a living: Italian grandmothers.
Featuring over 70 easy and accessible recipes from all over Italy, you will be transported into the very heart of the Italian home to learn how to make great-tasting Italian food. Pasta styles range from pici – a type of hand-rolled spaghetti that is simple to make – to lumachelle della duchessa – tiny, ridged, cinnamon-scented tubes that take patience and dexterity.
More than just a compendium of dishes, Pasta Grannies tells the extraordinary stories of these ordinary women and shows you that with the right know how, truly authentic Italian cooking is simple, beautiful and entirely achievable.
