“When you have good ingredients, you don’t have to worry about cooking. They do the work for you.” – Lucia, 85


Inspired by the hugely popular YouTube channel of the same name, Pasta Grannies: The Official Cookbook is a wonderful collection of time-perfected Italian recipes from the people who have spent a lifetime cooking for love, not a living: Italian grandmothers. Featuring over 80 easy and accessible recipes from all over Italy, you will be transported into the very heart of the Italian home to learn how to make great-tasting Italian food. Pasta styles range from pici – a type of hand-rolled spaghetti that is simple to make – to lumachelle della duchessa – tiny, ridged, cinnamon-scented tubes that take patience and dexterity.


More than just a compendium of dishes, Pasta Grannies: The Official Cookbook tells the extraordinary stories of these ordinary women and shows you that with the right know how, truly authentic Italian cooking is simple, beautiful and entirely achievable.
