Rescuing our southern Italian immigrant food culture and recipes from extinction
Mangia! Mangia! is born from the urgency to record our migrant Italian family’s unwritten recipes and food traditions before our food-wise elders pass away. To ignore this responsibility is to actively contribute to the death of a rich food culture which is distinct from the mother country's and possesses its own energy and identity. God forbid a world without homemade salami, tomato passata and preserves, and to die for pasta sauces! So it's Mangia! Mangia! to the cultural rescue.
