Sunday spaghetti is a treasured tradition. This custom—a shared meal every Sunday—is one of the strongest threads binding our family together. Nonna Giovanna was a beloved member of the DiBlasi family, but she was also part of a passing age – an age in which the family unit was sustained and protected through shared culture, food and history. And so, Nonna to Nana was born out of the realisation that if left undocumented, Nonna Giovanna’s recipes would be lost. Working to preserve her beloved Nonna’s traditions, it didn’t take long before the project grew. Eager to maintain the traditions and histories of a fast disappearing generation of matriarchs, numerous grandchildren enthusiastically recommended their grandmothers for inclusion in the project.

Created by Melbourne photographer Jessie DiBlasi, Nonna to Nana is documentary series that explores the seamless connection between love and nourishment. Fifteen Australian grandmothers from diverse cultural backgrounds invite you into their homes to share stories and recipes from their kitchens. Much more than ingredients and method – these images, portraits and stories honour the dedication and legacy of these women and while the kitchens and cuisines are different, the love and teaching remains the same.

Exhibited images have been selected from the recently released documentary cookbook, Nonna to Nana: Stories of Food and Family. Written and published as a collaboration between sisters, Jessie + Jacqueline DiBlasi.
