“First because of my grandfather and then because of my mother, it’s such a typical dish at home. There was a Christmas when my mother was making the meatballs and being there in the kitchen, I caught the aroma and returned to the memory of eating those meatballs with my grandfather” recalls Gloria wistfully.
