A Conversation with Rossella Rago, Author of “Cooking with Nonna”

The Coccia Institute was thrilled to partner for the second time this semester with Watchung Booksellers in presenting Rossella Rago.

Notable social media influencer and host of the popular web series Cooking with Nonna, Rossella Rago invites an Italian American nonna to cook with her and share traditional Italian recipes and fond memories of her childhood in Italy in each episode. She takes these recipes and also creates her own twist on iconic Italian and Italian American recipes in her cookbooks, Cooking with Nonna: Celebrate Food & Family with over 100 Classic Recipes from Italian Grandmothers; Cooking with Nonna: A Year of Italian Holidays: 130 Classic Holiday Recipes from Italian Grandmother; and her newest cookbook Cooking with Nonna: Sunday Dinners with La Famiglia. 

The event took place on Sunday, December 4th at 2pm at Watchung Booksellers and featured a lively discussion moderated by Coccia Institute Director, Mark Rotella, followed by a Q&A session with the audience and special book signing with the author herself.
