    I love cooking and eating polenta, but in my kitchen the taste is never the same as my grandmother's one. Cooked on her traditional wood-stove, her polenta is always special. I can never figure out what makes it so unique: the old stove and the traditional room, my grandmother's magic hands and her experienced way to bless it with a cross sign before cutting it with a cotton string, or may be her tender love for me. I think is all together!

    The light falling on your grandmother is warm and welcoming-- much like her polenta! I love that you got down low to make this image so that her polenta and gentle expression are all we focus on in the moment. Well done, Marian!
