In an Italian American family, every dish tells a story.
For two young Italian American bloggers, the stories of so many of their family dishes have become wildly popular with readers worldwide.
In this week’s episode, we’re discussing how our Italian American foodways have helped our guests Kate Famiglietti of The Two Bananas and Maria Del Russo of Sunday Sauce to connect to past generations and inspire future ones!
Both women share stories of how their grandparents’ recipes encouraged them to begin their journeys into Italian food culture. From backgrounds photographing the human eye and writing a sex and relationship advice column, these two passionate Italians share the fascinating backgrounds and careers that brought them to these projects and explain how recreating a cherished family recipe is a trial-and-error process that takes time and patience… but the dividends pay off in more ways than one.
We also discuss how our food culture helps connect us to our ancestral towns, why recipes vary from region to region, and what recipe modifications mean to how our foods tell a greater story.
Join us for an episode that’ll leave you hungry for more!
