Pasta Grannies: The Secrets of Italy’s Best Home Cooks

By Violet Bennison

Even if you're not planning to spend the weekend cooking, there's something deeply comforting about paging through this book of our favorite Italian nonnas.  Patience, perseverance, and spirit come to mind—inspiring ideas for a challenging time.

On the other hand, all that mixing, rolling, stretching, and shaping might be the perfect workout to try on this second weekend of quarantine.  Enlist your homebound child, partner, or roommate and get cooking!  

Our bookseller and resident cooking show aficionado, Tim, says "This amazing cookbook features pasta recipes from Bennison's popular YouTube channel. You'll not only discover how to make different pastas from scratch, but also learn about the grandmothers behind the recipes and the regions from which they come."
