“With each passing generation we lose a part of our Italian culture. We must pass our traditions to our children, we must teach them to make homemade pasta and to cook with love, for our families. To be proud of their nationality and to keep the traditions and memories alive … Take time for Sunday dinner with your family, make food like your grandma did. Tell your children stories, they will be proud to be Italian too … It’s the simplest things that bring the greatest pleasures in life. It’s all about love, food and respect. We show our love through the food we make.”
