Clara’s Kitchen



“Wisdom, Memories and Recopies from the Great Depression”
By Clara Cannucciari, with her grandson Christopher Cannucciari
Clara, well known as the grandmother on YouTube, was 94 years old when her book was published. Her videos on the Internet made her famous for their common sense, simplicity and wisdom. This book captures the essence of Clara.
Born and raised in a Chicago, IL. Suburb, Clara and her family survived the “Great Depression”. Her stories are mostly of that time; they are filled with family, friends, and food.
Clara tells a story from her life, and then adds a recipe associated with the story. There are many photographs illustrating the stories. The photos feature Clara, friends and family, and food.
Clara adds tidbits of her cooking wisdom throughout the book. The tips are useful and practical, such as differences between olive oil and vegetable oil. The index makes it easy to follow and find items and recipes.
The illustrations are also listed, putting Clara’s life into perspective. Her book is a wonderful volume of history, memoir, cookbook, and advice. It is no wonder that she is known as YouTube’s “favorite grandmother”!
