"In food there are memories" - Paola Bacchia
Welcome to Episode #34:
There are many layers to this conversation with Cookbook Author and Photographer Paola Bacchia. Place, identity, home, migration, culture, food, tradition, displacement, loss, family and ultimately celebration. This is an Istrian story, an Australian story and an Italian story. This episode weaves the many layers of these themes with the love of food and the threads of family and memories at the centre of Paola’s cooking.
Paola’s connection to place and the history of her family are the foundation for her new book Istria: Recipes and Stories from the Hidden Heart of Italy, Slovenia and Croatia. It is a deeply personal story and one that I am honoured to share on the podcast.
Thank you Paola.
