Nonna PaolaNonna Paola lives in Milano. She’s retired and occasionally cooks for fun for weddings. We met her in Brooklyn through her son, who’s a freelancer journalist for Italian media. He and his wife just had their first baby, so we got to thinking that meant all Paola’s cooking tricks were now officially italian grandmother cooking tricks. That’s when we got really excited. Lucky for all of us she was kind enough to take some time away from the baby to share a few easy home recipes that can be done in half hour.
