Celebrate Grandma’s cooking in Flanders

No one cooks quite like a grandma – everyone knows that.

Especially Rossella Rago, who has spent years learning the recipes of Italian grandmothers and documenting her culinary journey on her online cooking show, “Cooking With Nonna.” Tonight, she will prepare a recipe from her first cookbook at Presents of Mind in Flanders.

Rago will be at the store from 6 to 8 p.m. Her book, “Cooking with Nonna: Celebrating Food and Family with Over 100 Classic Recipes from Italian Grandmothers,” will be published in March. It can be ordered at

Presents of Mind is a gift shop operated by Community Options, a national nonprofit organization that provides employment support and housing to those with developmental and intellectual disabilities, according to a news release.
