I love the concept of having grannies preparing the meals at restaurants instead of professional cooks. These women have the experience and love of preparing food for others. The Enoteca Maria in Staten Island is the restaurant hiring the ladies, owner Jody Scaravella has this to say,“The concept has just mushroomed. I talk to everybody when somebody gets in, we talk about the concept, I always ask them if you know somebody who wants to cook.”
The restaurant has expanded the concept by having grannies from different cultures preparing their homeland recipes. Over 30 cultures are represented by rotation the grannies and menues. More from Oddity Central.
