Working my way through some of the snaps I took of Maria to see if any could make the grade for the upcoming FT article (I think they’ll be sending their own photographer 😀)Here she is showing one of her perfect cappelletti. The Faenza version has a mixture of cheeses as a filling. #pastagrannies #cappelletti #italianfood

Our new IGTV is up! Watch Antonia make this ‘tagliaredd cu cic’r’ - lovely thin tagliolini with fresh tomatoes from her garden, chickpeas cooked with bay, and basil the size of spinach leaves! A super simple but delicious dish from Basilicata. It has us dreaming of summer.

This week’s episode comes from New York where we met Dora, originally from Puglia, who makes pasta every day at her son’s restaurant @itrullinyc. Here she’s making orecchiette with meatballs - some for the customers, some for a big family gathering on Sunday. What a lucky bunch!

Quintina’s gnocchetti with tomato, chickpeas and plenty of parmigiano. Simple, warming goodness.

78 year old Silvana and her finished tortelli di Mugello. The filling is riced potato to which she has added a small amount of tomato sauce including garlic and parsley. It turned the mash pink. She dressed them with a wild boar ragu which had simmered for 3 hours. #doublecarbheaven #pastagrannies #ontheroad #tortellidimugello

Giuseppa (Peppa for short) is 92 and still making pici pasta - she only stopped making them for the village sagra last year (which is where her hat comes from). #pastagrannies #ontheroad #pici

Return visit to Maria - this time she made stricchetti with peas and prosciutto. With an FT journalist as audience cos Pasta Grannies is going to appear in the Weekend Magazine. Woo boo! PS Maria is saying you have got to squeeze the stricchetti (farfalle) tight or else they’ll open up in cooking. #pastagrannies #ontheroad #stricchetti #italianfood #emiliaromagna

Rina’s episode is now live and she’s making orecchioni filled with cheese and chard and dressed with butter and sage. We loved watching her sealing them with her fork and telling off anyone who tried to help!

The gorgeous Giuseppa who, at 96 years old, still makes these lovely macarrones de ungia - a Sardinian speciality which are little knobbly versions of malloreddus. If you haven’t already, go and watch her episode. She was such a character and so tiny that she had to stand on a step to reach the table properly.
