Passing Along Kitchen Traditions
It's cooking time at the Lucido household. The collage shows Nana Mary guiding her 13 year old granddaughter through the intricacies of making pasta for the family dinner. Francesca, a junior member of C. Colombo Lodge, has been baking alongside her grandmother since she was a very young girl. This time, nana directs the cooking and Francesca does it all from setting the water to boil to the final taste test. Follow Francesca as she:
Step #1 cuts the garlic
Step #2 pours the olive oil into the skillet
Step #3 breaks the pasta and puts it into boiling water
Step #4 uses tongs to check on the pasta
Step #5 drains the cooked pasta
Step #6 puts pasta into the serving bowl
Step #7 sautes the garlic in olive oil. Then Francesca adds the garlic along with olive oil, butter and cheese to the pasta.
Step #8 The "Lucido Girls" pose with the delicious pasta dish ready to serve!
