Following the recipe of a loved one who has passed makes us feel like they’re still beside us in the kitchen. This is especially true for Nadine Jarossy, a faithful follower of my blog, as she prepares her grandmother’s Italian Easter Pie. Traditionally made on Good Friday and savored all weekend, the pie is a rich, rustic treat signifying the end of Lent.
Nadine has a vibrant connection with her grandmother Katherine, which is kept alive every Easter. Nadine’s earliest memory of the pie is from visits to her grandparents’ Hazleton home and Italian grocery when she was 5 or 6 years old.
We talk with Nadine about this recipe, and all of her priceless memories surrounding it. Sharing this recipe is like sharing a piece of her heart.
