Event description
The creator of the Pasta Grannies YouTube channel brings the stories and recipes of Italian grandmothers to Portobello.

About this Event

Pasta Grannies is a gorgeous collection of time-perfected Italian recipes from the people who have spent a lifetime cooking for love, not a living: Italian grandmothers. More than just a compendium of dishes, the book tells the extraordinary stories of these ordinary women and shows you that with the right know-how, truly authentic Italian cooking is simple, beautiful and entirely achievable.

Vicky Bennison is the creator of the Pasta Grannies YouTube channel which has amassed over 400,000 subscribers and 170k on Instagram. She started the channel to help these remarkable women pass down their skills and knowledge for future generations, as she saw an essential need to keep their traditions alive.

Vicky will be in conversation discussing the Pasta Grannies journey, followed by a short cooking demonstration with the chance to try the pasta at the end. The discussion will be chaired by Ailidh Forlan, author of Street Food Scotland and the blogger behind Plate Expectations.

Accessibility information:

The bookshop is wheelchair accessible, with a portable ramp for the front step. Events are seated and speakers use microphones. If you have any further access requirements or any questions, please get in touch and we will be happy to help in any way we can.
