There’s nothing quite like a meal made by Grandma, and in Gabriele Galimberti’s photographic collection Delicatessen with Love, it’s easy to see why. This particular project took the Italian photographer across 58 different countries – from Egypt to Norway – to capture what grandmothers all over the globe feed their families. Caterpillars in tomato sauce in Malawi and shark in coconut soup in the Philippines, Gabriele tried it all and photographed it all. Gabriele Galimberti was born in Arezzo, Italy, in 1977. He studied photography at ‘Fondazione Studio Marangoni’ in Florence from 2000 to 2003. He then ran a professional photography laboratory and a photo gallery in Florence. In 2002 Gabriele was one of the winning participants in a photography competition called ‘Giovane Fotografia in Italia’ which selected ten upcoming photographers in all of Italy. He simultaneously made his debut as a commercial photographer with his first assignments for magazines. Gabriele has taken photos for many international magazines and companies. Currently Gabriele continues to work as a commercial photographer, but his interests have expanded to include documentary/travel photography. He is one of the members of Riverboom Publishing. He has recently finished a 18-month trip around the world during which he has done many photographic projects. His photos have appeared in many international magazines, including Newsweek, Le Monde, Geo, D – La Repubblica, Io Donna, Le Temps, Vanity Fair and many others. “I will never forget grandma Sara’s artichokes. They have become a cult since when a famous Spanish cooking blog published their recipe, which I transcribed from memory, following the thread of the taste left in my mouth (just like Proust’s madeleine). Gabriele Galimberti pays homage to all the grandmothers in the world and to their love for good cooking, starting from his own grandma Marisa who, before the departure for his tour around the world by couchsurfing, took care to prepare her renowned ravioli. She was not so concerned about the possible risks or mishaps her grandson might face in his adventurous travelling worldwide, but her major worry was, “what will he eat?”. That is because only at home you can eat well and healthily.”- says Arianna Rinaldo. We don’t know if there is a cooking book that contain all this pictures and also the receipts. If not, we hope that Gabriele will provide soon with an editor. For more infromation or to get in touch with Gabriele, just follow the link below.
