WE’RE ROMANA AND GEORGINA ,
A GRANDMOTHER AND
Over 60 years ago, Nonna made her way from Calabria to the UK at the age of 21, to find a better life for her Mother and Sisters. Nonna worked for the NHS when she arrived and it was there, at the hospital, that she met my Nonno Agostino, who had recently immigrated from Sicily. They married within 6 months and were together for 58 years.
Growing up in a Southern Italian household exposed me to so many authentic Italian dishes and getting to spend time with Nonna in the kitchen and learn her way of cooking, feels nothing short of a blessing. So, in 2018, we decided to share our love for cooking together with others by hosting a bi-monthly supper club in my home.
With our Spring/Summer supper clubs unable to go ahead at the start of 2020, we took our menu to the road by operating at local Farmers Markets and running a delivery service that offered freshly made pasta and a selection of our favourite dishes, straight to your door for you to enjoy at home. From our kitchen, to yours.
It’s this journey that has bought us to where we are now. Spring 2021 see’s the opening of an Italian Delicatessen that focuses on two things; a selection of some of the best produce Italy has to offer and a range of authentic dishes inspired by Nonna. A place for us to continue expanding our offering and a permanent home for our Supper Clubs.
