Just like rolling your very first gluten-free pumpkin and potato gnocchi.
No matter how easy it looks, the first one is always a flop.
But as my Nonna always says (imagine Italian accent)...
And she's not referring to the instrument.
I understand 'piano, piano' to mean, 'slow down, take it easy, and you will get it right in the end.'
Over the next few months I will be making lists of recipes, scanning black and white photographs, typing up some family history, and of course cooking with Nonna.
I think that's a good place to end the first post.
