During my last trip to Italy, I had a chance to record an unusual episode featuring Chiara, my grandmother, who just turned 94. She doesn’t have a blog, but nonetheless she has lots to say 🙂 The topic is very serious, life during World War II, but her stories are fascinating and a very important testimony.
Join me as I ask grandma about the times before, during and after the war (naturally, with a special focus on food and cooking) and learn why in wartime it’s “better to be a farmer!”
Since the recording is in Italian and in northern Italian dialect, for the first time on Thoughts on the Table, the episode has been voiced over. I would like to thank Candace Beisel, my wife, for giving grandma her English voice.
