What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
The turn of the Century became a time of transition for food and traditions. Specialties such as lentils, polenta, calamari and baccala’ were peasant foods with which Italians were familiar and accustomed to eating, but were also foods which estranged them from other nationalities.
