In kitchens all across Italy, grandmothers or nonne are cooking up traditional fresh pasta dishes for their families, just as their mothers and grandmothers have done before them for generations. For a nonna, love is putting food on the table, and pasta is the perfect vehicle to make precious ingredients go further.

While on a research trip in Italy, Vicky Bennison notices these cooking skills were no longer being passed onto the younger generations. This compelled her to set up the hugely successful YouTube channel Pasta Grannies, and this book is the outcome of over five years of filming and interviewing.

From the cheese-and-butter-drenched gnocchi of the mountainous north to the homegrown tomato-based sauces served with knobbly and twisted pasta of the sun-soaked south, 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 stories of the amazing women behind them.
