The story of the Watermelon Sandwich
At home, despite having 5 daughters at home, Nonna Pina loved her garden and used her green thumb to grow many fruits and vegetables for her large family. Her recipes were not out of a book, but from taste and experience. She never wasted any ingredients and always put her own twists on a meal. If you ask any of Nonna Pina’s immediate family an iconic ‘dish’ that is not only memorable, but takes you back to summer days at her house, it would be the Watermelon Sandwich. Fresh Watermelon cut thick on a crusty Italian bread was a refreshing treat that once you have tried it you can’t help but love it!
The Gallo's wanted to bring this beautiful story and allow the famous dish of Nonna Pina be a star at Campbell’s Cross farm. We hope to have people from near and far come to our farm and taste a little bit of Nonna Pina’s Kitchen!
Sometimes it’s the odd combination of foods that wakes your tastes buds up and reminds you to keep things simple and flavorful!
