Malaika’s Team Pick:
The award for the cutest thing on the internet right now (besides pictures of my dogs on Facebook) goes to Flavorewire‘s Fascinating Photos of the World’s Grandmas and their Delicious Home-Cooked Meals. Italian photographer Gabriele Galimberti carried out my dream job before I even managed to dream it: he travelled around the world visiting cute grandmas and asked them to make him their favourite foods. He took lots of pictures (both of cute grandmas and of good food) and compiled them in his collection, Delicatessen with Love. The meals he was served range from caterpillars in tomato sauce to ravioli – all cooked lovingly by cute grandmas. I know I’ve mentioned how cute the grandmas are, but you guys, I can’t help it! The grandmas are just that cute as they smile proudly next to their food. The cure for any bad day is a good dose of grandma and food pictures. Even if you’re having a fantastic day, I suggest you check out Galimberti’s collection to stock up on warm, soup-in-your-belly type feelings. You never know when you’re going to need them.
If you’re feeling ambitious, adventurous, or just hungry, you can even make a dish or two yourself! Just visit Galimberti’s website, where he posts pictures, recipes, and encourages you to “Eat, Eat, Eat!!!” There’s something special about a grandmother’s food. I don’t know how I would’ve survived my teenage years without my Oma’s chicken pot pie. How about you? Do you have a favourite dish from your grandmother? Have you called her to tell her you love her? You should. She might just invite you over to “Eat, Eat, Eat!!!”
