Owner Jody Scaravella attributes the inspiration for this unique concept to his own grandma. “Both my parents were hard workers, seldom home. De facto the head of the household in our family was my mother’s mom, Nonna Domenica…. She is the one who passed down to us her culture with, at its very heart, her culinary traditions,” he writes on restaurant’s website.

“Growing up I realized that my grandmother had been the repository of our family culture and identity. And I found out that, like her, millions of grandmothers all over the world pass down their heritage to their grandchildren,” he adds. This inspired him to open an eatery with this heartwarming concept. Initially, though, it featured only Italian recipes provided by grandmoms from various regions of the country, but since July 2016 he started inviting grandmas from the world over.

In 2011, he also extended the concept to other culinary cultures and began working on the creation of the virtual book “Nonnas of the World” and crowdsourced recipes. “My vision it’s this book to become the most extensive collection of grandmothers’ recipes, their particular Dialect, and memories, a testament to culinary culture of common people from all over the world,” the website adds.
