SAVING TRADITIONS AND SHARING SKILLS, ONE GRANNY AT A TIME!

"When you have good ingredients, you don't have to worry about cooking. They do the work for you." – Lucia, 85

Learn how to make pasta like Italian nonnas do. Inspired by the hugely popular YouTube channel of the same name, Pasta Grannies is a wonderful collection of time-perfected Italian pasta recipes from the people who have spent a lifetime cooking for love, not a living: Italian grandmothers.

For a nonna, love is putting food on the table, and pasta is the perfect vehicle to make precious ingredients go further. Featuring 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.

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, every nonna has her own special recipe. Pasta Grannies brings together the huge diversity of these authentic dishes and also celebrates the expertise, life and extraordinary stories of the amazing women behind them.

Vicky Bennison spent many years working in international development in places like Siberia, South Africa, and Turkmenistan.

The next decent meal was always on her mind and so she began writing about her culinary adventure, from mushroom hunting with the Russian mafia to cooking zebra stew near Lake Turkana in Kenya!

She is the author of The Taste of a Place, and co-wrote Seasonal Spanish Food with José Pizarro.
