cooking with nonna

Rossella Rago is the host of the popular web cooking show Cooking With Nonna www.cookingwithnonna.com. On the show, Rossella invites an Italian-American nonna to cook with her, sharing traditional Italian recipes and fond memories of childhoods in Italy. Rossella has traveled the country and performed cooking demonstrations in many cities across the United States with local nonne as her partners.
 
In 2010, Rossella, together with her mother and her Nonna Romana, participated in the "Italiano Battle" episode of the Food Network's 24 Hour Restaurant Battle; Team Nonna won.
Rossella spent her childhood in the kitchen with her maternal Nonna Romana, learning the long legacy of recipes from Puglia passed down through the generations for centuries. Launching Cooking with Nonna has allowed Rossella to expand her culinary expertise to much of the rest of Italy.
 
In March 2017, Rossella will publish her first cookbook: Cooking with Nonna: Celebrate Food and Family with Over 100 Classic Recipes from Italian Grandmothers. The book is now available for Pre-Orders on the Cooking with Nonna website.
