Georgia Spanos is a Melbourne-based writer and advocate for all things food and culture. Her Nonno, Mario Marasco, arrived in Melbourne from Calabria in 1950. Her Nonna, Saveria Marasco, arrived a year later. They went on to create a beautiful life for their children, grandchildren and future families to come. For the Marasco family, appreciation for the kitchen comes as second nature. They believe life is best served with a big bowl of pasta and a full glass of vino each day. Georgia now dedicates her practice to food and story, and would love to hear from you.
