Buona pasqua and happy easter to you all. hope you’ve had a lovely day full of long lunches and family time. here are a few snaps from sicily where we were treated to lunch by chef carmelo chiaramonte, his mother margherita and his gorgeous daughter carla. everyone helped making the cavati con verdura della primavera as we snacked on fried cheese and homemade bread. photos @oliviawilliamson_ for @pastagrannies

‘raviole’ are a cigar shaped gnocchi from piemonte. made by two domenica’s (swipe right to see them) and one of them added tomino cheese to the dough 😋.

Beautiful ladies in beautiful outfits. this is maria and pepina from sardinia with their ‘su succu’ an unusual saffron and cheese tagliolini based on a mutton stock with sun dried tomatoes and woody herbs. watch their video to see how it’s prepared - layered up with handfuls of fresh cheese and grated pecorino.

I’ve finished the text for the book. woo hoo! it’s now a process of polishing and making it look beautiful. (photo from back in march on the first of two shoots in london, dishing up a lasagna on set😊).

Cresc’tajat - a lovely pasta made using leftover polenta from the urbino area (though we think it’s so yummy you should make up a batch of polenta especially). we filmed anna faggi make this nearly a year ago and her recipe will be in the book...

New episode! maria stars again, this time making a popular pasta called strichetti or farfalle. served with peas and prosciutto, this is a popular combo for little ones. check out her video and find the recipe on our youtube channel now.

Maria proudly showing us her beautifully yellow sfoglia. that’s what good eggs do for a dough...

Three perfect tortellini sitting snugly on a spoon. these ones were made by cristina and filled with spallotto, mortadella and prosciutto crudo.

Our most recent episode features ines making a lasagna verde with a rich meat ragu with pork, pancetta and beef and a creamy béchamel - a dish that’s very typical of emilia romagna. ines lives near cesena and when she was young she used to get up at 4am to cycle to fields 40 kilometres away and cook the farm labourers' lunch.
