About Pasta Grannies
It all started when...
I was doing some research on a book about Italian food (for someone else) when I noticed cooking skills were no longer being passed onto the younger generations.
Everyone thinks their Nonna's cooking is the best. But what will Nonna be cooking in 20 years time? Italian women (and men) these days are far too busy to spend time in the kitchen.
Of course pasta making isn't going to die out, but it increasingly is a commercial activity - for chefs, pasta shops and factories - rather an a domestic one.
So I thought I'd celebrate these women and their skills by filming them.
If you know of any women (or men - but it's much more unusual) who'd be happy to feature in a Pasta Grannies episode, please get in touch!
