Great Depression Cooking with Clara

by Kelsey

For a more nostalgic look at cheap eating, visit 93-year-old Clara Cannucciari as she prepares recipes her mother made during the Great Depression. recently wrote about Clara and Frugal Nosh had to check her out.

In YouTube videos (5-7min long) and DVDs all edited by her son, Christopher Cannucciari, Clara shares personal memories and sweet anecdotes while she cooks – an endearing touch that doesn’t take too much time for you impatient cooks.

We liked the Poor Man’s Meal, an easy-to-make concoction of hot dogs, potatoes, onions, oil, tomato sauce, and water. After she finishes cooking, the camera shows her family members hungrily polishing it off.
