When I lived in Rome, right out of college, my friends used to come for dinner in Via Chiana 35 (where I lived) for “Jo’s meatballs (they used to call me Jo for my similarity with the writer sister of “Little Women”).
In my meatballs I used to add curry (I love spices) and apple pulp.
In the last hours I finished to watch “The Ignorant Fairies”, wonderful film by Ferzano Ozpetek on DisneyPlus where they also eat meatballs with apple pulp that it gives an irresistible sweet touch.
So, I thought I’d pay my respects to the director of my heart before to leave for a long trip.
To his poetry, to friendship, to love, to the food around at a table that it becomes our forever.
(Pass the meatballs in flour if you like them crispier).
Enjoy your meal and do not miss Ferzan’s film with an amazing cast that I love.
