Nonna Margherita Dottorelli in her kitchen, 1905
Some excellent traditional recipes from her granddaughter, Marta, who refuses to be just a character in a novel called "The Whirling Girl", made up by that writer.My name is Marta Dottorelli. My husband is Niccolo. Above you will see a picture of his grandmother, long ago, in her kitchen very traditional. We live still in this same house, in the hills behind Cortona, in Tuscany.
Fortunatemente I speak English very well.
It is my pleasure now to give you some recipes also very traditional, because that woman who has put me in her novel knows nothing, niente!
Today, Zuppa di Ortiche (Nettle Soup)
.......along with the method for the making, which “that writer” completely forgot. If her readers will listen to me, they will learn a lot.
