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.

Best Vietnamese Cookbook & Recipes - Buyer's Guide & Reviews - 2018


FamilyNano

I was lucky to travel through Vietnam when I lived in Thailand. The landscape and architecture were breathtaking, the people were welcoming and friendly, and the food was incredible. Vietnamese food is less familiar to Western palettes, but it is a rich and varied cuisine we should all get more familiar with. In the tropical South, the cuisine is similar to that of Thailand, inspired by the abundant tropical fruits and flavours of the Mekong Delta. In the North, the food is influenced by its proximity to China with lots of stir-fry and noodle dishes. The French colonial history also

Bánh Xèo – Savory Vietnamese Crêpes

by Huy @ HungryHuy.com

Bánh xèo seems to be designed to be eaten as a family. The batter, filling ingredients, and veggies aren’t complicated to prepare, but they don’t make sense to be bought or made to be eaten by yourself. You don’t just buy 1/4 pound of pork, 8 shrimps, or buy 1/4 head of lettuce. You kind […]

Gosh, it’s been over 21 years of being together and cooking together. When we think of the numbers, it seems like long ago but then again it doesn’t.

For Your Chicken And Dumplings, Here is What Goes!

by Sabrina @ FamilyNano

When talking about comfort food, chicken and dumplings top the list of what you should expect.

Don’t Miss Out on Escargots Any More

by Sabrina @ FamilyNano

In some countries around the world, snails are avoided or are seen as animals which cannot be eaten, when they think of snails, they think of them more as pets or just creatures that move around but never as food! This belief is rather alien to the Catalans for example who feast on snails as a part of their known and practiced eating tradition. So what this means is that these escargots might not be as bad as people make them look. Don’t be grossed out just yet, after all; they are molluscs as well so if you can eat

Vegetarian Smashed Cauliflower and Roasted Asparagus Sandwich

by Todd & Diane @ White On Rice Couple

Back in my restaurant days, for the longest time the restaurant had made its mark serving just two meals a day. Breakfast and lunch.  It was perfect for a vegetarian place since so many dishes for those two meals can naturally be vegetarian and no one thinks twice.
