“When I would come home, my grandfather Cesare would say, ‘you have no idea what I’ve brought you!’ For me, those words rang like a gift: dinner-time was approaching. Before cooking, my grandfather would put on a white apron and select the ingredients: he would turn on the burners and suddenly the kitchen would be filled with the scent of cooking, and everyone would start getting hungry”.
Our guide Germano, who today lives in the enchanting capital, Rome, in a splendid apartment in the shadow of the famous St. Peter’s Basilica, tells us about himself in this way.
He pleasantly recalls his first steps in the kitchen when he would help his mother in the kitchen at a young age. “Christmas, Easter, each event was celebrated around our dining table and, like every Italian family, we would talk about food while we ate”.
