Dinner at Nonna's

We captured this moment with the intention of sharing pieces of it throughout recipes here and there, but then realized that it’s beautiful on it’s own. This is what a typical evening with my nonna looks like, and oh how I wish it wasn’t just once a year. When you’re in the moment it feels like you’ve captured everything, but then when I watch it back I wish the camera never stopped.

Nonna has appeared on Laura in the Kitchen several times, here are some of her recipes:

  4. I couldโ€™ve watched hours of this type of footage! I also loved hearing you speak Italian – so mesmerizing! Would love to see more of this in the future ๐Ÿ˜Š

  5. Laura, yesterday was 21 years since my Nanny Angel passed and this video brought me so much comfort. From the moment my mom was pregnant and told her, my nan was giddy with excitement to teach me how to bake… however she passed before I turned 2, so that unfortunately didnโ€™t get to happen. Cherish these memories – I wish I had memories like this to cherish. Sending so much love from a Little Rock called Newfoundland, Canada.

  6. The cutest thing is when Mia drops her grape while putting it into her mouth and make an irritated pouty face.. As well as when your Nonna gives a big smile at the end of the video towards the camera while showing off her cooked dish. JUST love it

  7. Absolutely loved this. Brought tears to my eyes. My Nonna passed away when I was just two years old. I am so great full for the home videos that my dad took of her cooking and being with us. Beautiful family, God bless ๐Ÿ’œ

  8. Wow, don't know how I started crying when I saw Nonna start stirring her pot. I couldn't help but think " … this lady with tried-and-true pots … these pots weren't anything fancy, no showy pots, no name-brand, just LOVE poured into those pots … " Love, a warm smile, and laughter. Laura, thank you, thank you for letting us enjoy a true Italian family with authentic Italian cooks! We all need a Nonna in our kitchen! **reaches for tissue**

  9. Mediterranean cooking at it's best, just love this, warms my heart. I grew up with a Polish Grandmother, the things she would make. A simple kitchen, stove half gas half wood burning and no island. Most of my girlfriends were Italian so I got a taste of that as well. They all had a fully equiped kitchen in the basement and one on the main level for serving. Thank you so much for sharing. Went on a Little Italy food tour in Boston years ago. They stuffed pasta like rigatoni with meat and then cooked it in sauce or gravy or maybe broth. Do you know what this is, so delicious. Really enjoyed watching and that beautiful smile at the end!

  10. This melts my heart, such beautiful footage. Reminds me of when my Nonna was alive. You can leave out the music, I would love to hear your Nonna speaking in Italian.

  11. I love Italy and Italian food.My niece and nephew are Italian – their dad is Italian and they were born there – and so love the connection.I just came back from Puglia recently (not where they live) and loved it.
