Part recipes, part guide to life, Pasta Grannies is a book about cooking for love, for the people you love. Featuring more than 70 recipes from grandmothers located all over Italy, this book not only shares the stories of each woman who contributed a recipe, but gives insight into how the culture of food and dining in Italy is hinged on family and connection. Let these women share their insights and wisdom about life, while they also teach you how to roll pici and stir the sauce. Heaven. Pasta Grannies is the name of a popular YouTube channel, and now cookbook, produced by Vicky Bennison. An author of several food and travel recipe books and guidebooks, Bennison came up with the idea to get cooking advice and wisdom from the women who had been doing it for decades: Italian grandmothers. The result was an uplifting and joyful set of online videos that transformed into this cookbook.
