Nothing is more comforting for a wounded heart than comfort food. And who offers more comfort than Granny? Or, as she’s known in Italy, La Nonna. My friend Rocco showed me this video yesterday. You’ll meet him soon when he makes his famous risotto, but in the meantime, watch Nonna Stella create this awesome eggplant dish. I don’t often use the words “awesome” and “eggplant” together, but damn, this looks good. Nonna Stella’s other videos are here—they’re all in Italian, but food is a universal language, so buon appetito!
