A Tavola! This is how sisters Nadia Carinelli and Sara Marghella were called to the table by their mother when dinner was ready. Translated, it means “at the table.” Growing up in Edmonton’s tight-knit Italian community, the sisters were immersed in preparing beautiful dishes to serve every day with their Nonna, and eventually they perfected the art of entertaining. This journey led them to honour their late grandmother Rosaria Franco, (née Spinelli), by writing a cookbook called Nonna Said, sharing stories, memories and a collection of recipes passed from generation to generation. Along with the recently released cookbook, the sisters have specially curated pizza and pasta-making kits filled with goodies for cooking from scratch. Purchase the kits with the cookbook to learn how to create recipes just like Nonna did. Kits and cookbooks available online (www.atavola.com) and you can also find the cookbooks at The Italian Centre.
