Everyone loves meals their “nonnas” (grandmothers) make. In this month’s Read Before Eating podcast, Valerie Smaldone speaks with the man behind the popular Enoteca Maria on Staten Island, New York, where each day different nonnas prepare meals that are specific to their region of Italy. Jody Scaravella brings the stories to life in the book NONNA’S HOUSE: Cooking and Reminiscing with the Italian Grandmothers of Enoteca Maria. Valerie also chats with a couple of the authentic nonnas who preside over the kitchen at the restaurant.
