KQED Food – “Planting Italian Roots in America”

A short doc for KQED’s “Taste This”, that visited the parents of cook and author Rosetta Costantino. The Constantino family emigrated to the United States from Calabria, Italy in 1974, bringing with them heirloom seeds and enough equipment to recreate their edible garden here in the Oakland hills. For more than 40 years, the garden has fed their desire for a taste of home, and it is a symbol of their roots, one that they till and toil to preserve.
