My grandparents immigrated here in the 50s and still don't speak English very well. The best part about this recipe is trying to read it. I'll give a prize to anyone who can translate it!
If I try and speak like my nonna, with her accent, it starts to make sense.
Here are a few clues:
- Miad = meat
- Pis = pieces
- Ef = half
My favorite line though is the one she circled at the bottom of the page, "Eskius may rait" which translates to "excuse my writing". This one is a treasure.
