Photo essay: an Italian family tradition – tomato sauce making day

There’s actually not all that much I want to write this morning; I’d rather the photos do the talking. Last weekend heralded our family’s annual tomato sauce making day at my grandparents’ house, something I’ve been meaning to capture on film for a few years now. As you may have notices from my blogging habit, recording memories is important to me, and I wanted to share some of the pictures I took to give others a bit of an insight into a centuries old Italian tradition that continues in the backyards of countless emigrants in Australia today…

  1. I love these old traditions. It’s up to us to keep them going for as long as we can. We got my grandfather to teach us how to make sauce, wine and salami, so now we do it and hopefully our kids get to experience the same traditions we did.

    • That’s so awesome that your Nonno was able to teach you guys all of that! It’s nice to see our generation placing so much more importance on these traditions :)
