Summary of project:

Nonna to Nana explores the connection between love and nourishment. Fifteen grandmothers with diverse cultural backgrounds invite you into their homes to share stories and recipes from their kitchens; their memories and traditions passed down to you. The Nonna to Nana project is more than ingredients and method. It documents homes, families and personal craft. It honours 15 beautiful women and their simple but important legacies: to nurture and sustain future generations.”
