Grandmas Dishes From Around the World

Grandmas Dishes From Around the World

Is it possible to leave grandma’s house hungry? I don’t think anyone was ever able to. This statement doubtless applies to any country. Prove needed?  Gabriele Galimberti’s project “Delicatessen with love” took him around the world to discover the endless love and care of grandmothers in different continents. The idea came from his own granny, who wondered what Gabriele is going to eat while travelling. Galimberti decided to try the world cuisine through a grandson’s hunger. As a result of his journey he brought to the world a book of grannies recipes based on love, exotic ingredients and taste of traditions.
