Grandmothers give all kinds of sage advice. I think most of it probably is in one ear and out the other when we are young. Fodder for eye rolling in our teenage years, I am sure. But as we get older and have grandchildren of our own, these little gems of wisdom start coming out of our own mouths. Trigiani's Don't Sing at the Table is a compilation of great advice from both of her grandmothers. Some spoken, some unwittingly absorbed.
Trigiani writes about her two grandmothers with humor and respect, telling stories of the history of her family, from Italy to New York and beyond. A sentimental journey packed with advice that we could all use !
