Remembering the Past

Mary Contini picks up the thread of her family story from 1934 in Naples to the establishment of Edinburgh’s acclaimed Valvona & Crolla. With her inimitable style Mary reveals the dramatic and life-affirming story of her father-in-law, Carlo Contini, and shares stories of mouth-watering recipes and hilarious laughter, painting a vivid picture of life in wartime Italy and Scotland and the decades immediately after. Chaired by Magnus Linklater.
