If grandmothers around the world had a rallying cry, it would probably sound something like “You need to eat!”

Photographer Gabriele Galimberti’s grandmother said something similar to him before one of his many globetrotting work trips. To ensure he had at least one good meal, she prepared for him a dish of ravioli before he departed on one of his adventures.  

“In that occasion I said to my grandma ‘You know, Grandma, there are many other grandmas around the world and most of them are really good cooks,” Galimberti wrote via email. “I’m going to meet them and ask them to cook for me so I can show you that you don’t have to be worried for me and the food that I will eat!’ This is the way my project was born!”

The project, “Delicatessen With Love”, took Galimberti to 58 countries where he photographed grandmothers with both the ingredients and finished signature dishes.

He acted as photographer and stylist during each shoot with the grandmothers, taking a portrait of both the women and the food they made for him.

Second week of the lunar new year got you down? We’re sorry to hear that. But there’s nothing a crab claw wrapped in shrimp or a few pieces of har gow can’t fix. What’s that? You’re afraid to bring shame upon yourself and dining…

Ramen flight? Get us on the next train to Jersey.


after the momofuku field trip to sun noodle in new jersey, we learned our new favorite phrase: ramen flight. that’s what sun noodle is calling their series of ramen tastings, created by chef shigetoshi nakamura. the flights take place in the ramen lab, which is connected to their noodle factory. you can find sun noodle products in bowls of ramen at noodle bar and má pêche. thanks to the sun noodle team for letting us tour their factory and taste bowls + bowls of killer ramen. 

Sun Noodle noodles are seriously good. They sell their noodles in Asian grocery stores (check the refrigerated section) so you can make really decent noodles at home. I think it’s better to make it at home with Sun noodles than go to a “meh” ramen shop. They’re a little bit pricier than other brands but well worth the extra dollar or two.
