Our grandmas are mighty special people, and their awesomeness has inspired a new cookbook, Nonna to Nana.

Nannas are mighty special people. They do important things like teach us how to knit, tell us stories of times when computers didn't exist, crack awesomely daggy jokes and fatten us up with their delicious home-cooking, and it's that awesomeness that inspired a new cookbook, Nonna to Nana.

Melbourne sisters Jessie and Jacqueline DiBlasi have just released the tummy-rumbling collection of recipes, which come straight from the kitchens of 15 tea-sipping Aussie grandmothers. It's chockas with deliciousness from a whole range of cultures, as well as cockle-warming accounts of the ladies' traditions and tales.

If learning how to bake a sponge cake from Nana Norma, lemon chicken from Yiayia Maria or tomato relish from Granny Clarke sounds pretty ace, just email us here with your name and address. We've got three copies to give away, so tell us the best recipe you learnt from your grandma and one of them could be yours.
