Before we filmed 96 year old pierina we thought crescia sfogliata was going to be a type of flatbread. how wrong we were. it’s a strudel and i have no idea if 100 years ago (or more) someone in pontile came back from a visit to austria with the recipe, or it was an indigenous invention in this remote little hamlet. either way, pierina’s skill is extraordinary. you can watch the full video over on youtube #pastagrannies #pasta #strudel #cresciasfogliata #marchefood

So i fell off my perch when an email from instagram popped up last summer. the upshot was an expedition to basilicata to film nonne with portrait (not landscape) framing. and very soon.. like today.. their video will be on their igtv channel. one of the nonne featured is beautiful lucia, seen here with another lucia - her neighbour and friend for 60 years. they are making raschiatelli - the local name for cavatelli. thank you @instagram for collaboration! #pastagrannies #instagram #raschiatelli #cavatelli

How to skin a tomato. antonia uses a serrated knife to scrape the tomato skin - without blanching it first. i also love the cicadas in the background. throwback to august and our trip to basilicata. #pastagrannies #sanmarzanotomatoes #basilicatafood #cookingfromscratch

Dina and her maccheroncini. she used ‘farina granito’ which is soft wheat flour-around 10% protein - ground to resemble ‘semola rimacinata’ (finely ground durum flour). she says it’s used in areas which doesn’t grow durum wheat and i have come across it primarily in the fermo and ascoli piceno provinces of central italy. anyone know anything more? #pastagrannies #pasta #maccheroncini #italianfood

the advantage of making giant tortelli con la coda is you can more easily see how fernanda crimps one. #pastagrannies #pasta #tortelliconlacoda #italianfood

Lucia making sagne. the condimento is mint flecked breadcrumb cheesy dumplings cooked in tomato passata. it’s called sciuscella and should be a thing - it’s double carb heaven. it was what lucia used to feed the farm workers. #pastagrannies #handmadepasta #sagne #igtv #ontheroad #italianfood

Doing a bunk and going out for sunday lunch but back to this for supper, glorious spinach and ricotta ravioli with sage butter, which sounds wise, i think. sterling pasta recipe from @jamieoliver #jamiecooksitaly and this is a perfect sunday evening belly hug of a dish. #jamieoliver #italianfood #freshpasta #fromabove #hautecuisines #thefeedfeed #foodblogfeed #foodfluffer #thecookfeed #foodwriter#flatlaystyle #aseasonalshift #hyggelife #her_dark_materials #loveitaly #foodandflatlay #jamiesitalian #pastagrannies #gloobyfood #eater #heresmyfood #lifeandthyme #eattheworld
