Delicatessen With Love – Portraits of Grandmothers With Their Best Recipes

Before Gabriele Galimberti set off on an around-the-world photography tour, he ate dinner with his grandma and savored her best dish, ravioli. She wasn’t so worried about his journey or the risks he was taking, besides one detail: “What will you eat?” His grandma always knew how to feed him well.

Never quite forgetting his grandma’s ravioli as he traveled the world, Grabriele grew curious about what grandmothers cooked in the countries he visited. Staying with families, he persuaded the grandmothers to cook their best food, appealing to their natural care and pride in their recipes. That meant moose steak in Alaska, caterpillars in Malawi, ferociously hot curry in India, and shark soup in the Philippines. He came back with a book of detailed recipes and many exotic culinary experiences, made with love.

Next to the portrait of each cook, his website also posts an easy-to-follow recipe for each dish, so you can try it at home–if you can find all the ingredients.

Check out more photos from Gabriele’s trip on his website.
