They were born in the early 1900s in a trattoria in Rome, and their name tells the story of a small, infinite gesture: taking care of each other, as you can and with what you have available. Alfredo Di Lelio had just become a father, his wife Ines had just given birth to their first child and in order to help her regain strength, the cook prepared a pasta dish that was so good that she suggested adding it to their menu.
However, the story of Fettuccine Alfredo was just at the beginning. No one could have imagined that this recipe would be "adopted" by a couple of Hollywood actors and taken across the ocean. Who knows if Alfredo would have ever dared to dream that his dish, born out of love, would conquer thousands of people on the other side of the planet.
Is this not, after all, one of the magical powers of cooking? It can cancel distances and differences, reminding us that even the smallest gestures can change the world.
