Vietnamese Dishes To Cook

Pastilla (using leftovers)

by Caroline's Cooking @ Caroline's Cooking

Pastilla is a classic Moroccan pie and what a pie it is – packed with aromatically spiced meat, crisp pastry and a touch of sweet. And with my tweaks, it’s a great use of leftovers, too. This recipe may not be posted at quite the right time for Thanksgiving leftovers, but that’s because I didn’t...

Coconut & coffee gluten free scones

by Caroline's Cooking @ Caroline's Cooking

Sometimes recipe ideas are based on things I have in the house, sometimes they are ideas to meet a theme from some of the groups I participate in. Then other times, they come from somewhere else entirely. While these coconut and coffee gluten free scones are being shared today as part of a coffee-themed Sunday...

Smoked salmon bruschetta

by Caroline's Cooking @ Caroline's Cooking

So, Burns Night is coming in a couple days, so it seemed only fair to keep on a bit of a Scottish theme food-wise (OK I know the raspberry shortbread was more Valentine’s-themed, but shortbread is originally Scottish after all). I know I shared oatcakes and smoked haddock pate as potential canapés, but I wanted...

Persian walnut cookies (Nan-e gerdui)

We’ve had a few snowy days recently and it’s the sort of weather that makes me want to bake. Not that I don’t like snow, but it has been a bit too cold to have the kids (and me) out for too long. And our kitchen gets so cold, having the oven on helps warm...

Pan Seared Black Cod with Miso Butter and All-Clad d3 Armor Fish Pan Giveaway!

Eating a filet of fish without skin is like eating a skinless lechon or porchetta. It’s a travesty to miss out on the crispy skin and one we simply refuse to do. But it’s also a travesty to have the skin break and stick when cooking.  Which is why we love to prepare our fish […]

Cheesecake is my husband Michael’s favorite dessert.

by Caroline's Cooking @ Caroline's Cooking

They talk about the luck of the Irish, but apparently it doesn’t transfer to the Scots. Instead, a Scots word numpty is appropriate as I was making these. Basically it means idiot or fool, which is exactly what I thought to myself as I tried to take these green baked potato donuts out of the...

Squash and eggplant lasagna

Carrot, zucchini and cheddar soda bread rolls

by Caroline's Cooking @ Caroline's Cooking

One way in which a typical Christmas meal in the UK differs from a US Thanksgiving is that it is much less common to have some form of bread with your British Christmas meal. We tend to be content with putting the bread into the stuffings and if you were in my house, you’d have...

Banana baked cheesecake with peanut butter swirls (that’s healthy too!)

We Could Watch These Italian Nonnas Make Pasta All Day

We Could Watch These Italian Nonnas Make Pasta All Day

by Valerio Farris @ Food52

Every Thursday afternoon, Vicky Bennison gifts the internet when she uploads a video to her Youtube account Pasta Grannies. Each installment documents an Italian nonna, or grandma, rolling and kneading, pressing dough into familiar, and sometimes unfamiliar, shapes. They stretch out serpents of semolina for cutting into cavatelli or pleat squares into tortelloni, an edible origami plump with filling. Bennison has dubbed these women the Pasta Grannies.

Her videos are, in essence, an archival project. They capture a practice on its way out, declining due to an increasing, almost total, reliance on industrial means of production. These are skills that, for centuries, have been the stuff of generational inheritance. Until now, that is: In many cases, the women she records are the last living possessors of a certain pasta finesse.

Bennison was researching a book on Italian food when the idea struck her. “I felt there was space in the food firmament to celebrate old ladies who cook out of love for their family. Everyone says their grandmother’s cooking is the best, but we never see them,” she said over email. She splits her time between Le Marche (on the Adriatic side of Italy’s boot) and London.

She finds most of the pasta grannies by word of mouth, a glutinous whisper network that, for her, is all about who you know. “I work with a woman called Livia de Giovanni who I call my Granny Finder; it really takes an Italian to persuade very shy, elderly women to cook for us. It’s a case of 'Oh well, if you’re a friend of my daughter, I guess it’s okay’ kind of thing.'”

Because of the project’s historical bent, Bennison is often working with an agenda. She identifies a specific type of pasta—Sardinian filindeu or scarpinocc from Lombardy—and sets her sight on a woman who can bring it to life. The videos are simple, but informative. They often take place in a homekitchen; the women toggle between concentration and levity, they dip fingers into bubbling sauces and smile as they present their final dishes. In one video, Mariella, from Rome, prepares gnocchi with a Roman pork short rib sauce. She grasps the bowl, her finished dish, and beams into the camera: “Your gnocchi are ready. I hope you will enjoy them.” I don’t see why not.

I always find it fascinating both how the general foods can vary but especially the ‘special’ dishes made for festivals and holidays in different places around the world.

Hot cross buns
