Grandma Sends Her Love

  • SumoMe

In Her Kitchen brings you closer to home! Gabriele Galimberti scoured the world to photograph grandmothers in their kitchens. What’s even more lovely about this is that each grandma is pictured with a dish close to their heart. The wandering grandson has now created a gorgeous book filled with yummy recipes, delicious dishes and portraits of darling women who are chefs in their own right!

Gabriele Galimberti pays homage to all the grandmothers in the world and to their love for good cooking, starting from his own grandma Marisa who, before the departure for his tour around the world by couchsurfing, took care to prepare her renowned ravioli. She was not so concerned about the possible risks or mishaps her grandson might face in his adventurous travelling worldwide, but her major worry was, “what will he eat?”. That is because only at home you can eat well and healthily. – In Her Kitchen
