About the Author
Rossella Rago is the host of the popular web TV series Cooking with Nonna (www.cookingwithnonna.com). For each episode of the show, Rossella invites an Italian-American nonna to cook with her and share traditional Italian recipes and fond memories of her childhood in Italy. Rossella, a graduate of St. John’s University, has traveled the country and performed cooking demonstrations in numerous cities across the United States with local nonne as her partners.
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. Launching Cooking with Nonna TV has allowed Rossella to expand her culinary expertise to much of the rest of Italy too. Rossella, together with her mother and her Nonna Romana, won the “Italiano Battle” episode of the Food Network's 24 Hour Restaurant Battle in 2010. She is the author of Cooking with Nonna and Cooking with Nonna: A Year of Italian Holidays (Race Point Publishing, 2017 and 2018). Rossella lives in Brooklyn, New York.
