In a quest to 'rescue their mammas' recipes from extinction', Teresa and her good friend Angela Villella have banded together to set up www.mangiamangia.com.au, a site to share their family recipes and to encourage others to preserve their family food history, whatever their story or ethnic-background. Their first book, Mangia! Mangia!,explores their families' food culture and recipes.
