World Grandmothers and Their Traditional Dishes

Our grandmothers are the world's best cooks, hands down. On a recent trip around the world, Italian artist and photographer Gabriele Galimberti sought out to capture the beauty of the world's grandmothers along side their traditional dishes and the ingredients that make them. The results were a set of beautiful and heart-warming photos that are culturally rich and delicious!
