Passing down recipes is not just about cooking what came before us, and it’s not (typically) about archiving the exact ingredients, proportions, steps to follow... Passing down recipes is more like sharing stories. Recipes passed down through families are full of memories of past generations, experiences, and people.


Our Nonna Matija recipe from the Mediterranean has been handed down from one generation to the next. This culinary heirloom carries the simplicity of flavors of the past, the stories of those who came before and the warmth of moments around the dining table.


Nonna Matija instilled in our family the importance of preserving the art of simple cooking, with pure and plain ingredients straight from her garden.


The process of creating Nonna Matija's Pastry Dessert is a whole ritual, the kitchen becomes a stage, and each movement is a step toward creating a symphony of flavors.  As the ingredients come together, the energy in the room becomes thick with the anticipation of a dessert that has been enjoyed for generations. The smooth mixture of home grown almonds and milk is poured into a homemade tart crust prefilled with a homemade organic raspberry jam. The dessert is left to set in the refrigerator for a few hours, becoming a canvas for the memories that will be shared around the family table.
