Once again, this very talented Italian photographer takes us on yet another exploration - his latest photo series Delicatessen With Love, featuring grandmothers from 58 different countries with their signature dishes.

  1. Nice!

    Visit unec at the university of Nigeria

  2. Such fancy plates! I make faces on the boy's plates; with their food. Then hubby laughs at me.

  3. All of them are so good looking but I bet my Hubs would choose the Bison under the midnight sun

  4. What a great idea because nobody cooks like grandma!

  5. I loved the photo of Carmina Fernandez, 73 years old. Wow! that is one young-looking Grandmother!!! A cool idea for a photo essay. I would have liked to see the one of the children with their fav toys. Grand #3 walks around all day, toting his small tractor. He seems to do it without thinking--it is an extension of his arm:)
    Have a good weekend, Veronica.

  6. This is such a sweet idea. Now I want to take a picture of my grandma with her chicken matzoh ball soup, or stuffed cabbage.

  7. I love this! Clicking over to check out more - thanks for sharing!

  8. truly awesome, and I really loved that one with the kids too it was great!

  9. that is so cool. i wish i had thought to do that before my grandmothers were no longer cooking...
    my Nana - I would do with her "senator russel dish"
